Newly appointed CEO of the Leeward Islands Cricket Association (LICA), Richard Berridge says a number changes will be implemented to the structure of cricket within the sub-region, as the body seeks to improve the overall management of the sport amongst its member associations.
Berridge, who was reportedly confirmed in the position since early September to replace the Antiguan Derrick Nicholas, said the new structures are necessary for the overall improvement of the game.
“This is going to include Kiddy Cricket, grassroots cricket, which is club cricket. It is going to include paying your membership fees on time and being actively involved in the operations of Leeward cricket.
“Each member is represented on the board now and has one person who comes to board meetings and at all of those meetings they would have to give updates on the respective areas, and I think we are going to put in place, some new rules as it pertains to the development,” he said.
“We don’t think it is fair for territories to be hosting matches or receiving funding and they are not actually carrying out the programmes that are required,” he added.
The Kittitian, who has worked as a performance analyst with both the WICB and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), highlighted public relations as one area of high importance.
