Cricket Scotland today released their 2017 Annual Report.
Cricket’s national governing body in Scotland has made significant strides in 2017 with a number of notable achievements worth highlighting.
The national men’s team led from the front, as they defeated a Full Member for the first time in a One Day International when Zimbabwe visited Edinburgh last summer.
The women’s game continues to grow as their success on the field saw them qualify for the ICC Women’s T20 Global Qualifier in the summer of 2018.
The organisation also received a face-lift as they underwent a digital transformation to keep up with the pace of the modern times, ultimately culminating in a new website and brand.
The participation team, led by Ian Sandbrook, worked tirelessly to ensure the ‘gospel’ of Scottish cricket is being spread around the country. One of these initiatives has been the introduction of ECB’s All Stars, allowing aspiring cricketers to take part in the game from the age of 5.
On this year’s report Cricket Scotland Chief Executive Malcolm Cannon said, “It’s a privilege to be able to publish an annual report this year which covers so many positive issues and which demonstrates the breadth of activities carried out by Cricket Scotland.
2017 was an exhausting and exciting year and one during which the entire organisation, from national players and coaches to regional development managers, from administrators to Board members have all aligned their efforts to achieving ambitious strategic goals set by CS.
We look forward to an equally exhilarating 2018 which has already started well and we continue to push the boundaries for cricket in Scotland.”
