New West club cricket development officer

18 01 2008

Iain Stewart has been appointed as the new Club Development officer in the West of Scotland. He takes over from Tony Judd who took the Cricket Scotland 3-day junior workshop at Nunholm last season. His job is to help clubs (i.e us) in the development of their junior cricket.

Iain is due to attend the next D&G junior cricket development meeting in February. So he may well be visiting the clubhouse in the near future where we will be asking him to support another 3-day workshop in the summer.
