If there is anything that you would like to ask or contribute please get in touch.
Terry Richards has been involved in the game for more than 50 years. He started at the age of 13, recording scores – This meant walking to and from Jamestown to Francis Plain if I could not get a lift when a Jamestown team was playing – the payment for scoring at the time was two shillings and sixpence – which is twelve & a half pence in today’s value. His cricketing career started with Jamestown ‘B’ when he was 15 years old as a bowler. However, his cricketing career only took off after he travelled to Ascension Island in 1963 at the age of 16. On Terrys return to St Helena, he started a new team – Jamestown ‘Z’. Terry has been the President of the Cricket Association for the past 6 years

Barbara has been secretary to the St Helena Cricket Association for more than 10 years. One of the challenges of being the only woman on the executive committee means that she need to keep up as much as she can with “the world of cricket”, so that she has a positive input. Barbara,s role is to facilitate meetings, take minutes and to respond to issues raised by the Africa Cricket Association (ACA), as we became affiliated to the ICC on the back of the ACA. Barbara additionally assists with the arrangements of any visit from cricket coaches and undertakes the secretarial work behind the scenes for cricket tours.
