ECB Applauds Appointment

Clare Connor, Head of Women’s Cricket at the England and Wales Cricket Board says:

It’s great to see Surrey showing their commitment to the women’s game in this way.

“Ebony has played the game at every level, and has gained a breadth of experience working with Chance to Shine and the Taverners, all of which will set her up brilliantly to take on this role.

“I’m also delighted to see that Surrey have attracted a stand-alone commercial partner to their women’s programme.

“In addition to the strides taken by the England women’s team in recent years, we have also seen enormous growth in the number of girls playing the game and the collective focus now must be on making the domestic game for women and girls as robust and attractive as possible.”
