Scarborough Cricket Club are delighted to announce the appointment of two new board members, Kenelm Storey and Guy Emmett with immediate effect.

Club Chairman Paul Harrand said: ‘’We’re really pleased that both Kenelm and Guy have agreed to join us and use their vast experience to help continue moving the club forward. They are both ‘cricket’ people, who are keen to add their experience to our existing management team’’.

Kenelm, who lives at Settrington, has joined the cricket club board as ‘President Designate’ due to take office in 2020 following current President Philip Hodson.

He was a Non-Executive Director of Portsmouth and Sunderland Newspapers PLC, from 1992 until it was acquired by Johnston Press PLC in 1999.

Following a spell with Cablevision Systems Corporation in New York, he joined Guardian Newspapers, where he started as sales executive of The Guardian International in 1988 and finished as General Manager of the International Publishing Department (for The Guardian and The Observer).

He is currently Chairman of Helperby Therapeutics.

Kenelm commented: ‘’I’m honoured that the Scarborough board have invited me to succeed Philip as President when he completes his term in office early next year. There are exciting times ahead for all of us at North Marine Road, and I’m delighted to be able to play a role in making a positive difference at the club’’.

Guy is the recently appointed headmaster at Scarborough College, and has been co-opted onto the board to lend his club cricket experience.

He gained both his first degree, and masters degree, from the University of Durham and began his career as a Teacher of History and Deputy Boarding Housemaster at Rossall School before a second posting as a Teacher of History at Millfield School and then returning to Rossall as a Housemaster and Head of History. He was appointed as the Deputy Head of Ackworth School in 2014.

A very keen sportsman, Guy has played cricket to a high standard including minor counties cricket with Cheshire.

Speaking on his appointment, Guy commented: ‘’I’m delighted to be able to contribute to such a great and well-known club. I’ll be using all my experience to assist the club to continue moving forward and can’t wait to get started.’’
