Cowan was elected at the WP Women’s cricket Annual General Meeting (AGM) that was held at Sahara Park Newlands on Thursday, 05 Sep 2013. This was the first AGM following the disbandment of the previous committee three years ago.
Cowan was also part of a dynamic SABC Radio2000 ball-by-ball commentary team with the likes of Robin Jackman, Ian Bishop and Neil Manthorpe in 2009.
She will lead a committee of four other members, Amy Connolly (Deputy-Chairperson), Dawn Adams (Secretary), Gabby Lee van der Westhuizen and Sunique Daniels (Additional members).
The number of the women’s cricket clubs has increased significantly in the WP. Eight new women’s clubs have entered the women’s cricket league competition for the ensuing 2013/14 season thus increasing the number to the total 17 women’s cricket clubs participating. The highest in the country thus far.
“These are exciting times for Women’s Cricket within the Western Cape having previous provincial and national players and administrators back in the fold to enhance and ensure that the administration is key in managing a successful province” commented, WP Women’s Cricket Coordinator Clinton du Preez.
