LSCA Hon Secretary - Volunteer Vacancy

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The Lancashire Schools Cricket Association (LSCA) are looking to recruit a new Hon Secretary (voluntary position).

Earlier in the cricket season the current Hon Secretary John Heaton, announced that he would be retiring from his role at the Annual Meeting of LSCA which will be held on Thursday October 31st. John’s overall role within Lancashire cricket has expanded considerably and after much discussion and with the full agreement of the Officials of LSCA, the major role of administering the match programme for the Boys County Age Group teams from Under 10 through to Under 17 will now become the responsibility of the Lancashire Cricket Board. This process will involve very close liaison with LSCA as currently happens. One of the key players will be the Hon. Secretary who will replace John Heaton.

The Lancashire Schools Cricket Association is a registered charity and has its own constitution which involves annual elections to a number of key positions along with other members who form the LSCA Executive.

It is felt that the process of identifying a new Hon. Secretary should begin now rather than wait until nearer to the date of the Annual Meeting. Although the massive task of creating the fixture programme for the Boys County Age Group teams from Under 10 through to Under 17 will not remain as a responsibility of the new Secretary he / she will need to work very closely with the person identified by the LCB. This will involve liaising with the volunteer managers and assistants provided by LSCA especially once the county match programme gets underway.

The system of County Nominations and then Assessments / Trials for the age groups from Under 10 to 15 is administered by LSCA in close co-operation with the LCB and age group coaches. This begins in September and concludes after the Trials process at the start of the following season.

Apart from its involvement with the County Match programme for the teams from Under 10 through to Under 15, LSCA has a responsibility within the Player Pathway for County District Competitions at Under 11 and 13 with a flagship Final at the Emirates Old Trafford for the Under 15 age group. Inter-School Competitions at Under 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17 regularly attract entries from 100+ schools across the county. The overall administration of these competitions in conjunction with the members of the Executive who are the contacts for results, etc will be part of the new secretary’s responsibilities.

In addition the LCB’s website has become an important factor in disseminating information. A good knowledge of the internet and the e-mail system will be vital, as will the ability to use such software as Microsoft Office.

It has been agreed that a panel comprising the current LSCA Chairman, Vice-Chairman and the LCB’s Performance Manager will meet with those who express a willingness to take on this role. Dependent on the numbers involved, this panel will make a proposal to the Executive of LSCA for its consideration prior to the Annual Meeting.
