Waves seek president
Western Waves Cricket Region is on the hunt for a new president after long-serving administrator Kelvin White announced his retirement.
Mr White spent 20 years at the helm of the Victorian Country Cricket League’s region two, now known as Western Waves Cricket Region. The region encompasses the Wimmera, southern Mallee and Grampians areas.
He became Victorian Country Cricket League president last year, and said it was impossible to do both roles effectively.
Mr White acknowledged the work of Cricket Victoria staff member Stephen Field in implementing successful programs throughout the region during the past two decades, saying he was largely responsible for the progress made in western Victorian cricket.
“Stephen is now the coaching and talent specialist for the Waves, Barwon and Central Highlands,” he said.
“New region manager Tony Caccaviello is following in Steve’s positive footsteps and, with the recent addition of participation officer Jason Elliott, the Waves are in good hands.”
Mr White will formally hand over the Waves presidency at the region’s annual meeting on July 28, when all positions will be declared vacant. People interested in finding out more about the role are encouraged to speak with their association executive members or contact Mr White directly on 0429 921 876.
