Staff movement at the Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation

We are excited to announce a change in roles for two staff members within the organisation:

Harry Watts

Harry Watts

Since joining the Foundation in August 2022 as the ‘Urban Development Officer’, Harry has impressed with his professionalism and hard work. Harry has taken our Chance to Shine Street programme to great lengths which now boasts 9 hubs across the county. With numbers growing each week, this programme now involves 15 coaches delivering free weekly community sessions in Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham.

With Scott Tremain leaving at the end of January, Harry has stepped in to the ‘Club Development Manager’ role. With Clubmark, Safehands Management System, Gloucestershire Youth Cricket League and County Grant Fund all in full flow, Harry has been very busy and the transition has been smooth.

If clubs have any club related questions/ issues, Harry is now your first point of contact.

Kieran Slade


Kieran Slade / Community Coach

Kieran started with us in January 2019 as a ‘Coach Apprentice’. Kieran showed a fantastic attitude and quickly impressed with his self-starting attitude and quickly became a popular member of the team. On completion of his apprenticeship, he became a ‘Community Coach’ in April 2020, as COVID hit. In his role as Community Coach, Kieran gradually started to take more responsibility, getting involved in running events and taking on administration areas such as Clubmark and club and school competitions. Kieran has now been promoted to ‘Club & Programmes Officer’. This role will still involve some schools coaching, but he will now take lead on the Chance to Shine Street programme, and lead on a variety of club and school programmes/ competitions.

If you have any Chance to Shine Street, ECB under 13s & 15s National Cup or ESCA Schools competitions related questions/ issues, Kieran is now your first point of contact.
