Cricket Ireland today announced our very own Scott Irvine as their full-time Performance Analyst.

Performance Director Richard Holdsworth confirmed that Scott would take over Pete Johnston’s previous role as full-time Performance Analyst with Cricket Ireland. “With Peter leaving his role as Assistant Coach and Performance Analyst, he will be replaced by Scott Irvine in the latter role. He started out with Cricket Ireland on an internship as part of our partnership with Ulster University.”

“Scott plays the game and is a Level 3 coach, and he has learned very quickly the function and skill of match analysis - so important to our players with knowledge on the opposition as well as reviewing their own performance.”

“After graduating last year with first-class honours, Scott took on a part-time role with us, supporting the Hanley Energy Inter-Provincial competitions, as well as both the men’s and women’s senior teams. He will now lead the performance analysis area across the men’s and women’s game.”

Upon his appointment Scott said, “I’m delighted to be moving into a full-time position with Cricket Ireland having worked with them for the last 2 years on both an internship and part-time basis.”

Ireland has confirmed fixtures against New Zealand, Bangladesh and West Indies this summer, with the main attraction matches against England at Bristol and most notably, at Lords in May. As he prepares for Ireland’s 6 week tour of UAE and India Scott added, “I think the Senior Men’s fixture list for 2017 reflects how exciting a time it is to be involved in cricket within Ireland and I’m massively looking forward to being a part of that this year.”

“I’m really grateful for all the support I have had from so many of the members at North Down. The opportunities I have had to learn from senior players growing up cannot be underestimated and I still hope to be about the club as much as I can throughout the course of the summer!”


Well done Scott and good luck from everyone at The Green!
