MCC Club Chairman, Gerald Corbett, said
“This year’s MCC Committee election has been a first in a number of ways, from the introduction of online voting to now having more women on the Main Committee than ever before.
“We still have a long way to go, but we are making excellent steps in the right direction to make us a more inclusive and open Club. We look forward to welcoming all our new Committee members who will bring a wealth of experience and diversity to MCC.”
We congratulate Nick on this wonderful, and well-deserved, achievement. His interest in cricket is lifelong and his contribution to the sport over his career has been considerable.
