CSA rocked by resignation

2012-01-15 15:16

Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has received another setback after its commercial manager, Richard Glover, resigned from his post.

The Rapport newspaper reports that Glover's resignation on Saturday was sudden and unexpected.

This news comes with the governing body struggling to obtain sponsors after it was rocket by a bonus scandal involving missing millions.

Glover was appointed by CSA in May 2010 after he worked in the United Kingdom for more than a decade. During that time he also worked at the world-renowned soccer club, Arsenal.

Since his appointment in 2010, Glover - who hails from Bloemfontein - was in charge of obtaining sponsors for CSA.

The reasons for Glover's departure were that he received another work opportunity "which he could not turn down".

However, it is no secret that Glover became more and more frustrated over the last year because of the bonus scandal which has rocked the cricket governing body since August 2010.

    The whole game of cricket in South Africa and world wide is corrupt. I dont blame a guy of this caliber leaving a sinking ship.

      agreed- makes your task impossible- all these political appointments instead of merit appointments -fraud has become a national passtime and you never read about anyone being locked up!
