Tony Irish Steps Down as PCA Chief

Tony Irish has decided to give up the role of being the PCA chief which he earned last September due to some personal reasons.

Aside from being the Professional Cricketers’ Association’s chief, Tony Irish also works as the executive chair of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Association (FICA). Following his resignation from the post which he had earned last September, he will be substituted by PCA commercial director Rob Lynch. 

Talking about his retirement, Irish says, ‘It's an honour to have served as Chief Executive of the PCA but it's also been a very challenging time for me and my daughters in England. I have made a decision based on what's best for us as a family’.  

‘Having worked in our Oval office during the winter and an increased day-to-day involvement over the past few months, I have full faith in our excellent and dedicated team, led by Rob Lynch to continue championing the ongoing interests of professional cricketers in England and Wales’, he added. 

Interim CEO Lynch, in response, says, ‘I wish Tony and his daughters the very best on their return to South Africa. Tony has had a big influence on the management team, especially in these very testing times’. 

Other officers of the PCA were also a bit disappointed with the resignation but they all thanked Irish for his hard work and other contributions during the times of crisis. Aside from that, the other members of the PCA also expressed their well-wishes for Irish and his family.
