• Joubert replaces Faul at Titans

    Commercial manager Pierre Joubert has been appointed interim chief executive officer of the Northerns Cricket Union with immediate effect.

    Joubert is standing in for full-time CEO Jacques Faul. Faul was announced as Cricket South Africa’s acting CEO late last week. He has accepted the interim position in the absence of permanent CSA CEO Thabang Moroe, who has been placed on precautionary suspension.

    ‘We would like to congratulate Jacques on his promotion, it is a sign of the excellent work he has done at Northerns and also a reflection of the respect within which he and the union’s administration is held that he has been requested to assist CSA at this time,’ said Northerns Cricket Union president Tebogo Siko.

    The Proteas will soon host England for a four-Test series, with the series opener starting at SuperSport Park in Centurion from 26 December.

    ‘It is a great honour for me to be asked to fill the role of CEO in Jacques’ place. Obviously the first major assignment, is our preparation for the Boxing Day Test between the Proteas and England. We are looking forward to welcoming the Barmy Army and the many England and South African supporters who will fill SuperSport Park for that great occasion,’ added Joubert.
