The ACA is excited to have Lauren Ebsary joining its team as Cricket Operations and Player Relations Senior Manager from Monday 9 August.
The 34-time Australian international who enjoyed a 15-year domestic career in South Australia and Western Australia is thrilled to be remaining in the game.
“Remaining a part of cricket has always been a passion for me,” says Lauren.
“I didn’t know where I would fit whether it would be coaching or administration but when I heard this role was up for grabs, I felt this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Lauren says she is looking forward to being involved in driving forward the female game and supporting all domestic and international cricketers.
“I’m really excited to carry on my work in cricket but to be part of the ACA team is an incredible opportunity.”
Lauren, who was one of two Kerry Packer Award recipients in 2021, will join the Cricket Operations department having previously worked as a regional manager at the South Australian Cricket Association after calling time on her playing career following the 2018-19 WBBL season.
“Having recently retired I feel I have good knowledge and understanding of the joys and challenges that domestic and international players experience.
“Over the last few years, the game has changed, and it continues to evolve including more opportunities overseas.
“I’m excited to sit down with the playing group and understand where things are at and how I can support them.”
ACA’s General Manager Cricket Operations and Player Relations, Brendan Drew, says Lauren will be a great addition to the team.
“Lauren’s experience as a player, her recent roles at the SACA and her ability to build and maintain strong, successful working relationships sees her as an ideal fit for the role.
“I’m excited to have Lauren join the ACA team and look forward to seeing her build on the existing relationships she has with players and staff at Cricket Australia and the State Associations.
“These relationships will allow her to represent and support players while progressing and promoting the game.”
