The Premier League Committee recently welcomed Jane Crosswell onto the committee, filling the position of Independent Board Representative after former Emerson Rodwell Medalist, Ray Brown, retired after 14 years service.
Ray played 19 seasons with University of Tasmania CC between 1970/71 and 1988/89 amassing 242 matches including helping the club to their inaugural premiership in 1974/75 and second premiership in 1977/78. Brown holds the record for most wickets for the Lions with a massive 495 wickets @ 17.93 including 19 five wicket hauls. In 1980/81 Brown was named the Emerson Rodwell Medalist (TCA Medal at the time) as the best player in the competition.
Ray’s involvement in the PLC stretches back to October 2003 when he was appointed as Chair to the then Grade Cricket Committee. Ray served in this role until 2007 at which point the structure was changed to have a CT Board member serve as Chair, although, Ray has continued as the independent board appointed representative. In another role, Ray also served Tasmanian Cricket as the Tasmanian Code of Behaviour Commissioner for Cricket Australia.
Jane was previously involved with South Hobart Sandy Bay CC as both a player and administrator after the Sharks introduction into the Women's competition in 2010/11. Away from cricket, Jane is currently working as Business Development Director with Cancer Council Tasmania and as a Health & Wellness Coach. Previously Jane was CEO of YMCA Hobart and has had several involvements in a number of businesses as a board member.
CT greatly appreciate Ray's commitment and contribution to the Premier League Competition and welcome Jane to the committee.
