Mike Siddall to Quit as Leicestershire Cricket CEO after Four-Year Stint

August 12, 2014

Leicestershire County Cricket Club chief executive Mike Siddall has revealed he will step down from the role at the end of the season.

Siddall said Leicestershire’s FLT20 triumph in 2011 was the highlight of his time at Grace Road, but he also cited various off-field achievements including securing the release of the city council covenant on the club’s traditional home.

“When I came into the role in June 2010 it was only meant to be on a temporary basis but I realised how serious the club’s financial situation was and felt that I could make a difference,” said Siddall.

“I am proud of what has been achieved during the last four years on an extremely tight budget.

“It is an appropriate time to pass on the running of the club to someone who can hopefully take this wonderful club to the next stage of its development.”
