Macindoe reappointed Cricket PNG chairperson

Helen Macindoe, proud owner and managing director of Pure Water, was reappointed the chairperson of Cricket PNG (CPNG) at the CPNG Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The AGM was held on Tuesday, 5th June, at the CPNG Office.

Macindoe has held this position for the past twelve months. She was reappointed into the same position, along with Paul Kiruwi (Treasurer), Justin McGann (Infrastructure & Development Director) and Dean Ani (Affiliated Associations Representative).

“I would like to thank all the CPNG affiliated associations and life members for nominating me, to continue as the chair of Cricket PNG,” said Macindoe.

“The past twelve months have been challenging but there were some highlights, including Amini Park being Granted ODI Status, Hebou PNG Barramundis finishing top four of the ICC WCLC in their first attempt, City Pharmacy PNG Lewas retain their number 1 ranking in the EAP Region, Hebou PNG U19 Garamuts qualifying for their eighth ICC U19 Cricket World Cup while the BSP School Kriket Programme continues to promote the sport to all parts of PNG.

“I must thank my board, CPNG management and staff for all their hard work in making this happen,” said Macindoe.

Macindoe, Kiruwi, McGann and Ani will form the CPNG Board for the next 12 months alongside current CPNG board members; Rio Fiocco (Deputy Chairperson), Michael Harrison (Secretary) and Johnson Kalo (Women’s Cricket Director).

“The next twelve months promise to be exciting, with programs and projects planned to ensure that we can uphold the Cricket PNG vision of becoming PNG’s favourite family sport,” concluded Macindoe.

Macindoe follows Justice Thomas (1973-1982), Nigel Agonia (1982-1986), Veari Maha (1986-2001), William Maha (2001-2005), Mick Nades (2005-2016) and Wayne Dorgan (2016-2017) as the only chairs of CPNG since the CPNG Board was first formed in 1973.
