New WACA chair

St John of God Subiaco Hospital chief executive Lachlan Henderson has been appointed chair of the Western Australian Cricket Association.

Dr Henderson, a former A-grade cricketer, was last night elected to the position, with former state cricketer Kade Harvey named deputy chair.

Dr Henderson has served on the Waca board for two years and was formerly the deputy chair.

His election follows the decision of Sam Gannon to not stand for re-election, after 11 years as chair of the board.

At last month’s AGM, Dr Henderson was appointed vice-president of the association, in a leadership restructure following the shock departure of former Waca president Denis Lillee at the beginning of September.

In his statement responding to Mr Lillee’s resignation, Mr Gannon had announced his own plan to retire from the board.

Mr Lillee resigned days before the Waca was due to release its future development strategy, saying that he could no longer stand by and watch what was happening at the Waca.

As Business News subsequently reported, the Vision 2030 report included plans to spend $200 million reducing the Waca Ground's capacity to 15,000.

The report also heralded that all Big Bash League matches, along with one-day and test matches against India, England and South Africa, would move to the new Perth Stadium.
