Richard Wood has been appointed Head of the Derbyshire Cricket Board (DCB) from 1st October. Richard has been in the role of Interim Head of DCB & Growth Manager since March of this year. 

DCB Chairman Chris Hartley said: “Richard has done an excellent job in leading the DCB in recent months, following a difficult period of restructuring. Richard and the team have made great progress in broadening participation in cricket over the summer through the successful launch of the All Stars programme, delivering Chance to Shine in more schools than ever before, and through an innovative programme for Women & Girls. The DCB Board of Directors are delighted that he has accepted the opportunity to continue this work, and lead the organisation forward.” 

In addition to his role as Head of DCB, Richard will continue to have direct responsibility for manging Growth programmes aimed at increasing participation among young people, women & girls, the South Asian community, and through disability cricket.    

Commenting on his appointment, Richard Wood said: “I’m delighted to have this opportunity to continue to contribute to the development of cricket across Derbyshire. It’s a very exciting time with some great opportunities being provided through the ECB Cricket Unleashed strategy. I’m really looking forward to working with all the cricket community across Derbyshire to make the most of these opportunities, and deliver on our mission of growing the game of cricket in Derbyshire.” 

Richard and his team will be conducting a series of club forums across Derbyshire in the coming weeks. Commenting on the club forums, Richard said: “We’re keen to meet with as many clubs as possible in the coming weeks to start dialogue about our plans for the next year, and to gather their input at an early stage.” More details on the forums please click here
