WACA CEO takes dig at AFL

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WACA chief ex­ec­u­tive Christina Matthews cel­e­brated wins in cricket ahead of the 2016-17 sea­son at a break­fast launch on Wed­nes­day.

Matthews con­grat­u­lated Western War­riors player Michael Klinger for com­plet­ing his MBA, wel­comed Pippa Cleary back af­ter “serv­ing a sus­pen­sion for a small mis­take” (she was done for il­le­gal bet­ting) and cel­e­brated Mathilda Carmichael’s tran­si­tion from hockey to cricket. She also had a play­ful dig at the AFL. “The AFL is go­ing af­ter any girl who’s ever played sport,” she said.

Matthews said it took cricket nine months to se­cure a deal with the new Perth Sta­dium and the AFL three years.

“Mia (Davies), tell them we can help,” she said.
