Durham County Scoring Officer Sam Blacklock said: “This is a great opportunity for scorers and clubs from around the North East to meet and learn about the latest new scoring software being introduced to scorers.

“The software will be used for first class scorers too and will be great for scorers when scoring on a weekend and for their junior sides.
