has been involved in disability cricket since it's beginnings in the early 1990's and has seen it's development grow from small regional tournaments to the county championship and latterly to international cricket for our Learning Disability players.
Over these years Roger
has become a figure head for disability cricket in England and Wales and has developed relationships and understandings with his
counterparts in other cricketing nations that will pave the way for his
successors to further develop disability cricket world-wide.
has developed the relationship between disability cricket and the governing body to the level where all ECB policy and strategy now involves provision for people with disabilities, this is a lasting testament to his
involvement in disability cricket because it was not always the case.
Disability cricket has come a long way under Roger
and whilst there is still work to be done those of us who will carry on that work are starting from a far healthier position than that of Roger
colleagues all those years ago.
