Cricket Wales to propose new Board



Following an extensive recruitment process Cricket Wales will shortly propose a new-look Board to its membership.

The new Board will have wide-ranging cricket experience from all parts of Wales, together with outstanding leadership, management and business skills, required to drive the sport forward.

The Board consists of six individuals from within the recreational game, two from Glamorgan Cricket, three Independents and the CEO of Cricket Wales. All candidates were interviewed by a Cricket Wales Nominations Panel.

Chair of the Panel and ECB Board Director Jim Wood stated: ‘The panel had some difficult decisions to make and regrettably were not able to appoint all who volunteered. The quality of applicants far exceeded everyone’s expectations and demonstrates the passion that exists from very talented people to help lead cricket in Wales. The panel wishes to express their appreciation to all who put themselves forward’

Sport Wales Senior Officer Susie Osborne added ‘By tackling a challenging governance issue cricket in Wales is being rewarded by the announcement of a new Board that remains well connected to all parts of the game, but also has on it strong leadership, specific business skills and the diversity required to run a modern sporting organisation’

The new Board requires membership approval and will assume its responsibilities in the coming months. Its Chair will be elected at its first meeting.

Roger Morris (Recreational Game)

Richard Penney (Recreational Game)
