The Haileybury Society is delighted to report that Nick Gandon (M 69) is one of four new members elected to the Main Committee of the MCC following a ballot which introduced digital voting for the first time.

Nick joins the Main Committee for the first time. A Member for 27 years, he made eight first-class appearances for Oxford University and also played minor counties cricket for Hertfordshire and Lincolnshire. As Director of the Cricket Foundation from 2003-09, he devised and implemented the Chance to Shine programme and has extensive experience within the third sector.

Nick and the three newly-elected members will begin their three-year terms on 1st October 2019, replacing Angus Fraser, Robert Griffiths, Hugo Loudon and Nigel Peters, whose terms will conclude on 30th September.

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.
