Director of Women’s Cricket

Former England all-rounder and ex Surrey captain Ebony Rainford-Brent was appointed as the club’s first ever Director of Women’s Cricket in December 2014.

Rainford-Brent will work alongside Academy Director Gareth Townsend and the Performance Department, advising on all Women’s Cricket played at the club. She will also work with the Surrey Cricket Board on the development of the women’s game and strategies to increase participation at all levels.

A winner of both the Women’s Ashes and the Women’s World Cup, Rainford-Brent was a graduate of the Surrey Academy. A captain of Surrey, she has remained closely involved in the game, recently joining the Test Match Special team as well as working with the Lord’s Taverners.

Her appointment was made possible by the securing of a stand-alone sponsorship for Women’s First XI Cricket with Pemberton Greenish, a law firm who previously supported the Surrey CCC Academy.
