NT Cricket CEO, Andrew Ramsay has announced his resignation after seven years in the top job.  Ramsay is currently in Hobart where the NT Under 17's are competing in the national championships.  He has accepted a senior Canberra-based position with the Australian Sports Commission commencing in March.

Commenting on the announcement, Ramsay says,

"It has been a privilege to serve the cricket community in NT and I feel fortunate to have been involved in this phase of our development.  There are many good people contributing to cricket's success and I've enjoyed tremendous support from the community, the Board, Cricket Australia and a fabulous team of staff."

"I'm looking forward to overseeing the 20th Imparja Cup in February and assisting with a smooth leadership transition before my departure."

NT Cricket's President, Dr Bruce Walker says...

“Andrew has overseen substantial growth in cricket with over 15,000 Territorians now engaged in cricket. He has delivered a major capital upgrade to Marrara Cricket Ground giving us the capacity to attract first class cricket to Darwin such as the recent training camp with the Australian men’s team, and he has consolidated the Imparja Cup as the National Indigenous Cricket Carnival based in Alice Springs.

Andrew has also established the groundwork to expand to a second club in Palmerston and the entry of the NT Strike into the SACA Premier League.  His contribution provides an excellent platform for the incoming CEO to further develop the game in the Territory.”

“The Board has already begun the search for a CEO who is able to build on the outstanding legacy that Andrew Ramsay leaves as a result of his time in the Territory.”
