Cornwall Cricket are delighted to announce that Kellie Williams is to start her role as Women and Girls’ Development Officer from the 1st April 2020.
This position has been made possible as a consequence of the ECB’s Inspiring Generations Strategic Plan and is very much a part of Cornwall’s own Strategic plan 2020-2024.
Although we are in unprecedented times for the country and cricket in the county, Cornwall Cricket want to remain positive for the future and the development of the game.
The role of Women and Girls’ Development Officer will be centred around delivering schools cricket within both the Primary and Secondary sector with the emphasis on enthuse participation. Kellie will actively support clubs to set up girls and women’s sections, through facilitating activities and developing volunteers to provide a robust outcome from the schools coaching programmes.
Joe Skinner Chief Cricket Officer has stated, “This role is a really exciting opportunity for Cornwall to create opportunities for women and girls’ to participate in cricket, within schools and clubs. We have never had the opportunity to focus on girls’ and women but now we do which is a fantastic opportunity for the game once we get back up and running as a game.”
Kellie Williams said about her appointment, “Women and girls cricket in Cornwall has always been close to my heart, which makes this an opportunity like no other! It’s a very exciting time for the future of Cornish cricket, creating fantastic opportunities for players of all ages and abilities.”
When Kellie commences her role I am sure she will be in communication with you, albeit by email at this stage, but I do know that Kellie is keen, when able to get our and about to meet clubs and all the volunteers involved.
When we understand emails and communications, we will make accessible on the ‘meet the staff page’ of the website.
