Wally Edwards appointed to Board of the Bradman Foundation

29/12/15 Category: Blog, News Posted by:


Cricket Australia’s retiring Chairman Wally Edwards has been appointed to the board of the Bradman Foundation. After overseeing Cricket Australia’s most significant board and operational changes in history, Mr Edwards will continue his association with the game through the Bradman Foundation, an organisation that has the responsibility of ensuring the finest traditions of the game are followed in line with Sir Donald Bradman’s wishes.

Mr Edwards played three Tests for Australia opening the batting with Ian Redpath in 1973-74. His first class record for Western Australia yielded 1381 runs in 25 matches at an average of 30.68. He made two first class centuries and nine 50’s.

His long association with cricket since retiring from the game includes the role of Vice President of WA Cricket Association since 2000, on the board of CA for the last 11 years and the Chairman since 2011 which included being an ICC delegate.

Mr Edwards leaves Cricket Australia in a strong position after overseeing the move from a strong state-based Cricket Australia Board to a predominantly independent national organisation. His four year term as Cricket Australia Chairman also saw changes to the game’s governance and financial model.

Sir Donald Bradman was Chairman of the Australian Cricket Board from 1960-63 and again from 1969-72. Mr Edwards is the first former Cricket Australia Chairman to be elected to the board of the Bradman Foundation and is pleased to now have the time to dedicate to building awareness and profile for the work of the Foundation and the valuable contribution to the game by the Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame.

Foundation Chairman, Maurice Newman AC, is delighted that Mr Edwards, a former Test opener and such a well-respected and experienced cricket administrator, is joining the board. “His association will enrich and strengthen the Foundation’s connections with cricket stakeholders around the globe’”, he said.
