Hi All

Iíve taken on organising kit for the North Mids Referees society, and one item which came up as a request was for pre-printed match scorecards - A6 size, to fit the widely available wallets that hold yellow/red cards and a (borrowed) Ikea pencil.

As Iíve had a box load printed, I thought it might be worth promoting more widely than just the one society.

So if youíre interested, you can buy a pack of 50 or 100 here:

Any feedback welcome.

First of all, welcome to the forums. Also, the scorecards are decent enough for most games, but you did ask for feedback.

For reference, I use A7 format, with team and captain's name noted at the top along with who kicked off at what minute of real time (so typically :02 or :31 or similar). Below that I usually only list scores, for example a try in the middle of the 7th minute would be 5_6'30_ (_subscript_) in a column to the left, first and third quarters as it were, and then a + for a successful conversion.

So by far the biggest problem with your scorecard is that of the space allocated for scores and yellow/red cards, only 20% is available for tries and conversions - the same amount as for drop goals and penalty tries. I also count 18 rows, and that is excluding the image/link at the bottom. With my handwriting in 5 degrees centrigrade, using an Ikea pencil, I'm writing at about twice that "font size", leaving the 2nd and 4th columns for overflow, and potentially other notations such as cards and blood bins (and the timing thereof).

That said, for such a management-oriented card, remove the empty box above "Home Subs" and replace it with "Blood bin ^" (where ^implies filling in upwards from the "M" level). Users can easily enough use PT and DG rows for games with one side scoring more than a handful of tries, and presumably in the realm of cricket scores there are fewer YC/RC too.

Thanks for feedback. Any chance you could post a picture of the card you use? A7 seems very small?

I’ve been using this format for a couple of years and have never run out of space / etc, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect!

I use a small notebook , which I guess is A7
Left hand page for cards and subs
Right hand page for scores
I have never really got on with any pre printed card.

I use a card based on scorecards posted on this site. I like to have a running total on my sheet but understand other do not.

Yes, the old running total debate !
I don't think it's a good idea as if you make an arithmetical mistake once it endures for rest of game ..

I guess that depends on your arithmetical skills.

I use a note book, I find scorecards too small and it would no doubt lead to a bit of stick if I put my reading glasses on every time I needed to make notes
