Cricket Ireland role for Holdsworth
Cricket Ireland have appointed Richard Holdsworth as their new performance director.
The 42-year-old, currently the International Cricket Council's Europe regional development manager, will replace Mark Garaway, who last month announced his resignation for personal reasons.
Holdsworth will take up his new role in November.
He said: "Having worked closely with Cricket Ireland over the past eight years in my role as regional development manager for the International Cricket Council and as the author of their domestic review in 2009, I am delighted to become part of a very successful Associate member country.
"I very much look forward to building further on Cricket Ireland's successful development of the game, particularly the performance of its international men's, women's and youth teams, who I believe have immense talent, fighting spirit and share a great passion for the game."
