The new structure will ultimately offer membership categories for players, coaches, schools, clubs and fans throughout Scotland and friends of the Scottish game throughout the world. Three new categories were launched this month including the Saltire Club for fans of the national teams and an Executive membership for supporters of cricket who wish to contribute towards club, community and regional development projects.
The membership system called Go Membership offers members the ease of online registration and will in the future be utilised to manage Cricket Scotland events, courses and to provide a free database for clubs to manage their membership should they wish to use it.
Malcolm Cannon, CEO said “The suggestion of implementing a national membership structure for Scotland has been discussed for many years within the cricketing community and we are delighted to be launching the first stage of our new structure. Other national governing bodies in Scotland have been using Go Membership and other membership systems for years and it is fantastic that cricket has taken this forward step. We look forward to engaging more closely with our members both old and new and will be listening carefully to members’ suggestions on how to build better relationships to the benefit of Scottish cricket.”
“It is really exciting that we have three marquee games against England and Pakistan next June and some exciting home games in 2019, and we believe that tickets will sell out very quickly. By becoming a Saltire Member, you will get access to priority tickets on a first-come-first-served basis so in order to ensure you get to see Scotland take on, and hopefully beat, these two giants, it is well worth signing up.”
