In addition to the formal business, Malcolm Cannon launched the new Cricket Scotland strategy for 2016 to 2019 - more on that will appear on the website in the next few days. There were also presentations on the Annual Report (including the potential impact of reduced monies from the ICC in 2017 and 2018 if its funding model is not altered as is hoped) and the financial results for 2015.
Basil D'Oliveira award winner was presented to Kari Carswell (pictured with Colin Neill) for her outstanding contribution to the development of the Women’s game in Scotland in multiple roles, not least following her recent stepping down from her role as National Head Coach after 5 years in charge.
The Eve Mawdsley Fair Play Award was presented to the ESCA Championship as a league award for 2015.
"The league has been newly formed and the clubs generally behaved well both to each other and umpires. There was an atmosphere of mutual respect and set a good standard for a new league." said Colin Neill.
