Cricket Shepparton is on the lookout for a new representative cricket director, after James Stokes stood down at Wednesday night’s annual general meeting.
Stokes held the post for two years and led the association to two Melbourne Country Week carnivals, blooding several up-and-coming representative cricketers along the way.
Reappointed president David D’Elia said the executive was in the process of filling the vacancy.
‘‘We’re currently working with a group of three to four people to try and set up a sub-committee to look after that as opposed to one person in the past,’’ D’Elia said.
‘‘Two of them are current players, one of them comes from a well-known cricket family in the local area and hopefully we’ll be able to make an announcement in the next two weeks.’’
D’Elia will serve a fourth term as president, after he was reappointed unopposed.
Secretary Jenny Mears and treasurer Sean Ryan will also continue in their positions, with no other nominations.
Ben Prenter was not reappointed as director of senior cricket due to work commitments, but D’Elia was hopeful that would change in the coming weeks.
Apologies were made from three clubs, but all were represented on the night in a straightforward meeting.
Following the official business, a general discussion was had regarding rule changes and future direction of the competition.
Some topics included the format of the season, with a stand-alone Twenty20 competition followed by one-day and two-day matches, and finals structure in each grade.
A rule change meeting was scheduled for late July, giving clubs sufficient time to stage their own AGMs if they had not done so already, with rule change submissions due by the end of next month.
D’Elia said no major rule changes had been raised.
He said some committee places remained open and encouraged volunteers to come forward.
