Carswell steps down as women's coach
Cricket Scotland has today announced that Head Coach of the senior women’s team, Kari Carswell, has stepped down.
After five years at the helm of the women’s national team, Kari will continue in her role as Women’s Cricket Manager at Cricket Scotland and continue to be part of performance set up as a player.
Commenting on her decision Kari said “Every coach knows when it’s time to move on and find a new challenge, it’s been an incredible 5 years and I’d like to thank all the players and coaches that I’ve worked with over that time.
It’s certainly been a bit of a rollercoaster ride and as a group we’ve had some amazing results and off the field made some great strides in terms of the support we can now provide for our best female cricketers. It’s time for me to concentrate on making sure those structures and pathways are robust and that the game at all levels continues to grow throughout Scotland.
I’d like to thank Cricket Scotland for giving me the opportunity to coach the squad and best of luck to those girls who get selected for the team in the future”.
Cricket Scotland Performance Director Andy Tennant was full of praise for Carswell, “Kari has done an outstanding job as Head Coach of the women’s team over a considerable amount of time and the standard of cricket the girls are now playing is a credit to the players, their Head Coach and all the support team who are now involved in the programme.
We are also excited about the opportunity this presents Kari to take more of a strategic role in leading the further development of the women’s game in Scotland.”
Cricket Scotland will advertise for a new women’s Head Coach in the near future.
