Cricket Scotland is delighted to announce that Sue Strachan (pictured right) was elected President-Elect by its members at the Annual General Meeting on March 20th. After one year as President-Elect, Sue will become President in March 2020 for two years. Sue will be the first female President of Scottish cricket in its 140 years’ existence.
Sue was elected onto the CSHL Board in 2016 and is not only a very keen cricketer at Dumfries Cricket Club but has also served on the board of the Scottish Women’s Football association as well as being a first XI hockey player for Dumfries and a current Scottish Masters squash champion.
Additionally at the AGM, two annual awards were presented on the night with the Eve Maudsley Award for fair play going to Falkland CC, recognising its position as the most welcoming club in Scotland with superb teas. The Basil D’Oliveira trophy, which goes to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to Scottish cricket, was awarded to Ramsay Allan of Grange Cricket Club for his exceptional work both at Grange and also at Cricket Scotland.
The members also approved the annual accounts for the previous year and the level of club subscription for 2019 which remains the same as 2018.
