Andrew Sinclair has been elected as the new Vice President of the South Australian Cricket Association following the retirement of Rex Sellers from the role during the SACA Board of Management meeting held at Adelaide Oval on Monday evening.
Sellers, a SACA Board member since 1987, will continue to serve on the Board of Management and will remain Chairman of the Les Favell Cricket Foundation Trust.
SACA President, Ian McLachlan said Sellers’ contribution to cricket and his personal support during his time as Vice President had been invaluable.
“Rex has provided me with outstanding support during the13 years that we have worked together as President and Vice President and this generosity of time and commitment has always been extended to Chief Executives and administrators from all levels of cricket,” Mr McLachlan said.
“The Association has completed a number of significant developments at Adelaide Oval and has undergone significant changes during Rex’s tenure. Throughout, he has proven to reliably be one of the wise heads at the table, capable of delivering considered advice in the nicest way.”
His replacement, Andrew Sinclair, was unanimously elected to the role. Sinclair was appointed to the SACA Board of Management in February 2009 to fill the casual vacancy created by the retirement of Alan Hill.
He has extensive experience as a commercial lawyer and has been on the national Board of the Taxation Institute of Australia.
“I am grateful that despite his busy schedule, Andrew has agreed to make time available to take on the job, McLachlan said.
“He has proven himself to be an extremely capable and conscientious Board member and will make an excellent contribution in this important leadership role.”
