Myles Churchill appointed Chair of Essex Cricket Foundation


Essex Cricket Foundation is pleased to confirm the appointment of Myles Churchill as its new Chair.

Myles, who brings with him almost three decades of professional experience in investment management, will take over from Keith Brown, who has served in the role since the Foundation was formed in 2015.

He will lead a board of trustees comprising Essex Chief Executive John Stephenson, legendary former player Graham Gooch, John Barnes, Bob McLintock, Julia Healey, Richard Hunt, John Spence, and Janet Hargreaves.

“I’d like to warmly thank Keith Brown for his excellent work in developing the Essex Cricket Foundation from its formation over the past eight years, and I’m looking forward to continuing what he started,” said Myles.

“I’ve always had an interest in cricket, and my main motivation for taking this role is about wanting to give something back to the game on a county level.”

Away from work, Myles lives on the Essex-Suffolk border with his wife and three children, and their two Labradors, and has been involved as a player and as Treasurer at Mistley Cricket Club near Manningtree.

He continued: “It’s good to try and expand what I’ve done at grassroots, and I want to continue supporting the entities that the Foundation currently does while also bringing fresh ideas and expanding on what we do now.

“We’re heavily into ability cricket as it is, but something else we’re going to look at, especially following recent reports, is inclusion and diversity, and how we use cricket as a tool to promote community cohesion and health.

“I also see much of the discussion around how money in cricket can be best utilised, so I’ll be trying to transfer my professional skills into what is needed to make the Foundation successful moving forward.”
