Posted by:

GCC Cricket Chairman is delighted to announce the appointment of Olly Birts as the Director of Cricket.

Olly is a fantastic cricketer, he made his first XI GCC debut at 16 years old and has impressed ever since. He has played 2nd XI cricket for a number of first class counties, been contracted with the MCC Young Cricketers, been part of a Berkshire minor county team that won a number of trophies and spent time playing in a number of successful teams in both South Africa and Australia. Outside of playing, Olly is a level 2 coach, has coached and led junior sides at all the club’s he has represented overseas and has impressed over the summer with his efforts to corral the club during the tricky season that we have faced due to COVID-19.

Olly’s cricketing experience, drive and enthusiasm will make him a tremendous Director of Cricket and I would personally like to congratulate him on his appointment.

This is a new venture for GCC, but one that should be looked upon with excitement and ambition. OIly’s focus will be on leading cricket development across all aspects of the club and will evolve as he settles in, however please keep an eye on the GCC social media accounts over the coming week to understand a bit more about Olly’s vision and aspirations for this role, as well as more on his background.
