Leah Poulton has advised the Melbourne Stars that she has accepted the role of Head of Female Cricket at Cricket NSW and will therefore resign from her position as Stars WBBL Head Coach.

The club respects Leah’s decision and while we are naturally disappointed not to have her involved, we know Leah’s expertise is highly sought after and we wish we her well.

On her departure, Poulton said:

“While it’s not ideal to accept a position and move on so quickly, the Head of Female Cricket role at Cricket NSW was too great an opportunity to pass up.”

“I’d like to thank the Stars for everything over the past couple of months. Although I was only there a short time, the energy and passion was obvious. I have no doubt they will achieve great things in the future and wish them all the best for this season and beyond,” Poulton said.

The Melbourne Stars will begin their search for a replacement Head Coach for the WBBL squad in due course.
