Please see a recent staffing message from Cricket Scotland’s CEO Gus Mackay:
“Cricket Scotland and the cricket community have faced many challenges over the past six months and will continue to do so over the short, medium and long term. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience, support and understanding through what has been a challenging time for us all involved in cricket. To finally get club cricket going has been a welcome relief to us all.
“Over the last six months we have reviewed the organisations operations and implemented a Reset Plan to protect the business going forward. We have seen a substantial reduction in income from our commercial and funding partners which has forced us to look at our cost base and make some difficult decisions.
“Whilst we have been able to take advantage of the Furlough Scheme, unfortunately we have had to make five positions within Cricket Scotland redundant. The roles affected are in the areas of Participation, High Performance and Performance Pathway.
“Therefore in the short term our staff who are full time and those returning from Furlough on a part-time basis will be working with you and taking on additional responsibilities. Once our income streams for 2021 are confirmed and budgets approved we will revisit our structures to best support the game.
“The key points of contacts are as follows:
Nic Wilson – Head of Development (formerly Participation)
David Bordes – Workforce Development Manager
Rosy Ryan – Women & Girls Development Manager
Ammar Ashraf – Community Engagement Manager
Barry McGeachy – Disability Cricket Development Officer
Tony McKenna – Development Officer, Aberdeen City & Shire
Alex Green – Development Officer, Highlands
Paul Macari – Head of Operations
Gordon Drummond – Performance Pathway Manager
David Johnson – Financial Controller
