Leicester Blue Sox can announce that Matt Crawshaw will be stepping down as club chair at the end of this season.
After devoting 10 full seasons to the club Matt explained the time had come for newer, younger leaders to emerge and take the club forward over the next decade.
His resignation does not affect his existing commitments to the club’s Little Sox and Team UK programmes.
The club will be holding its AGM on Sunday 11 November, Matt said “it is time to usher in a new era at the club, in particular we have been very successful in attracting a lot of new faces to our adult team this year, it feels like a good opportunity to leverage off this new energy and build a new leadership around it.”
Leicester Blue Sox’s final action of 2018 at Western Park will be an end of season friendly double-header against Northants Centurions this Sunday.
On the same day, our u11 Little Sox coach pitch team will be at Farnham Park for the 2018 Youth National Baseball Championships.
The following Saturday will see all three of our junior teams u8, u11 and u15 participating at the Herts Futures Tournament.
