Cricket Leinster is delighted to advise that the former Ireland Women's Captain, Isobel Joyce has been appointed to the position of Women's & Girls Development Officer, reporting to Philip Smith, General Manager.

Joyce who retired from Ireland duty after the ICC Women's World Twenty20 in the Caribbean in November 2018 will start with Cricket Leinster in the coming months.

Cricket Leinster would like to acknowledge the funding support provided by Cricket Ireland which has enabled us to make this appointment.

Isobel will bring a wealth of experience, expertise, passion and dedication to this role based on her brilliant sporting career to-date both on and off the field of play. Her appointment is a strong message about our strategic commitment to develop and transform female cricket in Leinster both in terms of performance and participation.

This is a hugely important strategic appointment as we look to significantly grow and develop female cricket across the province over the next three years - amongst other objectives, we are targeting a 50% increase in the number of participating clubs and a 30% increase in the number of teams involved.

Isobel will formally start in her new role with Cricket Leinster on 1st May and we are hugely looking forward to having her on-board.

Isobel will also continue in her recently appointed coaching capacity at Clontarf Cricket Club.
