Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket Limited have announced a partnership with Total Cricket Scorer (TCS), the world leading, easy-to-use cricket software for recording scores of cricket matches.

The aim of this partnership is to eventually have all junior county fixtures scored on Total Cricket Scorer. The benefits are vast, which include:

  • Updates all batsman and bowler statistics
  • Provided live scores on the internet
  • Handles traditional scorecard and linear score sheets
  • Displays multiple graphs and wagon wheels
  • Updates external packages including Play-Cricket

The ability to provide live scores for our junior county programme is an excellent benefit and enables introduction of this sort of technology to the non-professional game. Keen followers of our junior county teams will be able to keep an eye on scores as they happen, without being at the game.

More in-depth analysis available from batsmen and bowlers statistics will for the first time assist coaches and managers to provide more evidence based coaching to players like never before.

The use of Total Cricket Scorer will be used by as many of the boys and girls squads as possible during the 2013 season.

Andy Siddall (LYC Head Coach) said: “I am delighted that we have been able to form a partnership with TCS.  It will add a far more professional standard to our operation and allow us to provide a much better service to our players, families and supporters of Leicestershire Young Cricketers.  It will also provide valuable information to our coaching team on performances, which in turn will help us in our planning and review of our development pathway.  I have been fortunate enough to be involved in clubs and leagues which already use TCS and find it has really raised the standard of scoring and the ability to share match scorecards and annual statistics across a wider audience via the internet.  It will certainly add value to the Leicestershire Young Cricketers programme.”

Paul Thurstance (Director from Total Cricket Scorer) added: “We are very proud to announce our new partnership with Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket who will be promoting the use of Total Cricket Scorer throughout their region as well as using the software for Leicestershire Young Cricketers. Total Cricket Scorer is the world’s leading cricket software and it gives us great pleasure to make it available to support the development of young cricketers.”
