McIntyre set to retire
Operations Director Euan McIntyre is retiring from his role at the end of the month after 11 years of organising all of the cricket operations for Cricket Scotland. This has varied from regional cricket, through age group teams to the huge logistics of running numerous high profile ODIs in recent years.
A qualified Chartered Accountant, McIntyre joined Cricket Scotland in May 2002 from his former role as a Finance Director in industry.
During his time with the organisation he has also been Scotland Team Manager at a number of events – these include the ICC Trophy in 2005, the World Cup itself in 2007 in the West Indies, the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa and the 2009 T20 World Cup in England. In his last official role, he will be the manager for the World Cup Qualifying event in New Zealand in January 2014.
Educated at George Heriot’s School, the canny off-spinner represented Scotland on eight occasions between 1981 and 1988, and was an ever present in the Heriots FP teams across five decades.
Affectionately nick-named Crocky, he will maintain is involvement in the game, in an independent capacity, assisting with the event delivery of the T20 WCQ tournament being hosted jointly by Cricket Scotland and Cricket Ireland in July 2015.
He said, ”I have thoroughly enjoyed my 11 years at Cricket Scotland having being involved in all aspects of match and tournament logistics, while working with very committed people throughout the organisation.
The organisation is barely recognisable from the one I joined in 2002 when we had a handful of staff, no professional players, a small development programme and were just about to start our journey in the ECB domestic leagues. There have been many highs and a few disappointments along the way but I have loved every minute of working within the Scottish cricketing community. I am looking forward to relaxing on the golf course and supporting the game from the sidelines as cricket will always play a crucial role for me and I have been very fortunate to have been able to work professionally in the sport”
