EP Cricket Board to focus on cricket development:

With the successful hosting of the test between South Africa and England behind them, the Eastern Province Cricket Board (EPC) is focusing on the future of cricket in the province, says EPC chief executive, Mark Williams.

“Misunderstandings and differences between board members which went public late last year have been cleared up,” he adds.

EPC president Donovan May has confirmed that he has apologised to the EPC board for comments on the Cricket South Africa Board made in response to questions from a TimesLIVE journalist, which could be interpreted as the Eastern Cape supporting the present Cricket SA board.

“My comments, some of which I believe were taken out of context, were made as a member of the Cricket SA Board, and not as a representative of EPC,” says May.

“Subsequent to the publication of my opinion as Cricket SA board member, the Eastern Province Cricket (EPC) Board has resolved to be guided by the Members Council of Cricket South Africa on the future of the Cricket SA Board,” he adds.

Some board members who went public with their concerns before the matter could be resolved have apologised for statements they made in an unauthorised media conference called without the knowledge of the rest of the board.

“Richard Dolly and I apologise unequivocally for misleading the public and clubs by stating that disciplinary action would be taken against the president,” says EPC vice-president Mxolisi Breakfast.

The claims made front page news in the Herald of December 21.

The EPC board has accepted the apologies by the involved directors, as well as the Presidents’ explanation regarding his comments, according to Williams.

“It is hoped that the EPC Board can now get on with the job of implementing the exciting plans it has for cricket development and ensuring the financial viability of the franchise in the Eastern Cape,” says May.

“Too much time was spent last year on matters not related to the game itself.

“The board has undertaken to work more closely with the clubs and to communicate more effectively in order to ensure that there is greater stability through transparency in the administration of cricket in the Eastern Cape,” he says.
