The position, funded by Cricket Ireland, is seen as a key component in the growth and expansion of the Union's cricket operations.  The role will also support the increase in organisational capability and strengthening of the Union's role in the development of the local game, as outlined in Cricket Ireland's Strategic Plan.

Within this new role Uel will be responsible for the Union's day-to-day operations including all logistics associated with the Northern Knights and NCU representative squad programmes.  He will also assist in the delivery of key objectives contained within the NCU Strategic Plan.  However, Uel's main focus will be in relation to the smooth running of NCU cricket and technical operations to ensure we satisfy compliance procedures and protocols as laid down by the NCU, Cricket Ireland and relevant funding bodies.

Speaking of his appointment Uel said, "I am delighted to undertake this new role within the NCU.

I look forward to playing a full role in supporting the next phase of this ongoing programme".
