WICB new appointments

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has appointed Australian Darren Holder as coaching manager.

He will be the technical officer responsible for the coaching development component of the Cricket Development Unit, the WICB announced in a release.

Holder, who is currently in India conducting a Level 3 coaching course on behalf of the National Cricket Academy and Board of Control for Cricket in India, is expected to assume duties with the WICB by mid-June.

His duties will include the management and delivery of the WICB’s Coach Education Programme, organisation and delivery of specialist coaching programmes, overseeing the Shell Academy’s Cricket Programme as well as organising and co-ordinating the Emerging Players’ Programme.

Holder has worked extensively with elite players, at the junior, youth, first-class and international level, in the area of specialist skills training. He was responsible for the technical remediation programme for West Indies pacer Jermaine Lawson in his visit to Australia last October.

He is coaching assistant to the Queensland Bulls Team and Queensland Academy of Sport and is pace bowling co-ordinator for Queensland.

Holder is in his ninth year as a full-time senior coach at Queensland Cricket and has coached Queensland’s under-15, under-17 and under-19 teams with great success.

A Cricket Australia Level 3 coach, he has assisted Queensland Cricket and Cricket Australia with several programmes. (CMC)

Compliments of the Nation News

THE APPOINTMENT of Edward “Teddy” Griffith as president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has been hailed by his predecessor, Reverend Wes Hall.

He said Griffith, a former Barbados and Jamaica cricketer, who defeated Antiguan Clarvis Joseph by a vote of 9-4 at a WICB meeting in Antigua on Tuesday, combined marketing skills with a cricketing background.

“At this stage of our development, with a very young team of brilliant individuals and our finances beginning to look a lot better, it is really fantastic that someone like Teddy Griffith has become president. I think he will do well,” Hall said yesterday.

“He understands the cricket side of things and with his business, finance and marketing acumen, he has all the requirements for the job. “His ability to act and to speak authoritatively on international matters will be another plus. He has a very good executive body and a good board,” declared Hall.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announces the appointment of Leonard Robertson as the Board's Corporate Communications Manager with effect from April 1, 2004.

Robertson has more than 20 years experience in the field of media and public relations. He started as a journalist with the Trinidad Express and rose to Assistant Editor after spells as News, Sports and Sunday Editor and was the first Bureau Chief for the Caribbean News Agency in Port of Spain.

A national of Trinidad and Tobago, Robertson was head of Communications at the Caricom Secretariat in Georgetown before becoming Public Relations Officer in the Office of the Secretary-General. He came directly to the Board from that position.

In welcoming the Corporate Communications Manager, WICB Chief Executive Officer Roger Brathwaite said the appointment was a clear indication of the Board's intention to strengthen its relations with its various publics and to try to build widespread support for its policies and programmes to promote and develop West Indies cricket.
