South Western Districts (SWD) Cricket on Monday congratulated Ms Shireen Noble on her election as the new Vice-President of Athletics South Africa (ASA).
Ms Noble made history on Saturday, at the Annual General Meeting of ASA, which was held in Johannesburg, when she became the first female to be elected to this prestigious executive position.
Ms Noble, who is still serving on the Transformation Committee of SWD Cricket, has served SWD Cricket in various portfolios over a period of more than two decades.

She attended various National KFC Mini-Cricket seminars, served on the organizing committees of numerous national youth cricket tournaments and in 2008 she was a finalist in the category of KFC Mini-Cricket Coordinator of the Year at the prestigious Annual Cricket South Africa (CSA) Awards.
“On behalf of the cricket fraternity of South Western Districts Cricket I would like to congratulate Shireen on this well-deserved honour,” said President of SWD Cricket, Mr Rudy Claassen.
“Her passion for sport, loyalty, work ethic, integrity and enthusiasm are unsurpassed, and she certainly makes us proud,” he concluded.
