After reviewing the numerous applicants for the position of LSC chair, the Cricket Finland board has chosen Shaun van den Dobbelsteen for the role. Shaun will work together with current chair Simon Uphill and other LSC members to ensure a smooth handover until Simon stands down end-November.
Shaun’s work will start immediately with the summer 2016 league scheduling project, so please make sure your club and committee members are active in replying to LSC emails due out soon – no replies and ignoring upcoming deadlines will mean no official cricket for your club next summer, so don’t miss out because you have nobody checking your club’s general email inbox!
Further decisions on expanding the LSC will follow shortly.
All clubs are invited to participate in this event to see the best clubs and individuals of the season receive their awards.
