As previously advised, Emma Boschetti is not continuing in the role this season.
We are delighted to announce Jo Fairy will fill the rather large shoes left behind. Jo has worked with the association over the last 2 seasons taking team photos of the VMCU representative sides and shots throughout the carnival. Jo has her own business and a wealth of experience in digital marketing, sponsorship sourcing and business partnership development.
Jo is already meeting with potential sponsors and continuing the excellent work Emma did. In the interim Jo can be contacted on 0411 313 334, further contact details will be provided shortly.
The BHRDCA has secured a $5000.00 grant from Cricket Victoria to continue developing junior female cricket within the association. Hot on the heels of winning the u/12 VMCU Claudia Fatone shield in January, this will assist in continuing the development of those players and providing opportunities for them. In addition , ALL clubs are requested to have female participation in their thoughts as they plan for the upcoming junior season.
This area is a big push from both Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia with the Big Bash season to have female teams for each franchise this season and the profile of female cricket continuing to grow. Clubs will be able to work with the association as part of this grant to attract players and help with equipment, clothing, training and other resources to develop individuals and teams.
More information can be sought from the Committee of Management and a huge thanks to Ross Chambers who did the leg work to secure this.
