Cricket club batting for new finance director

County Cricket Club
is recruiting for a finance director, following
confirmation of major expansion plans.

The position is newly-created, and according to Stewart Regan, CEO of the
Club, the vacancy has attracted significant attention.

Regan said given the limited number of finance positions in professional
sport and the continuing globalization of cricket, he is not surprised by the
level of interest in the role.

‘Cricket is going through a purple patch. There’s a lot of interest in the
game, especially since the emergence of 20/20 cricket, and we’re coming into the
Ashes year. Yorkshire also has strong heritage and history,’ he said.

By 2019, the Club plans to have invested in excess of £60m into the cricket
ground, increasing the capacity to 22, 000.

Fred Trueman and Geoffrey Boycott are among the famous names to have played
for Yorkshire, with Michael Vaughan, Matthew Hoggard and Darren Gough all
current first XI capped players.
