Mark Medlicott is back as acting chief executive of South Canterbury Cricket.
South Canterbury Cricket Association president Andrew McRae said Medlicott was likely to stay in the role for the rest of the season which ends in late March.
Medlicott held the role from November 2012 until early September this year while a combined South Canterbury rugby and cricket boss was found.
The successful applicant, Tony Lewis, started five weeks ago but suddenly quit the role last week to become chief executive at the Tasman Makos.
“Give the time it could take to sit down and appoint someone new, I’d imagine, in all likelihood he will be there for the rest of the season,” McRae said yesterday.
The board has found four new directors.
Former representative players Todd Elliotte and Garry Ballantyne will join accountant Greg O’Brien and former Cantabrian Richard Spackman as new members.
They will join returning president McRae and directors Peter Scott and Grant Hamel.
Ryan de Joux will remain as the players’ representative.
