Gershon Gibbons has stood down as treasurer of the Bermuda Cricket Board after more than seven years in the post.

Gibbons, who resignation on Thursday, was first elected as treasurer at the 2010 annual general meeting. He also acted as high performance chairman for the past three years.

“On behalf of the BCB executive and member clubs I thank Gershon for his dedication and commitment to cricket,” Lloyd Smith, president of the BCB, said.

“He has served as treasurer, high performance chairman in addition to consistently coaching youth cricket teams at his home club Western Stars in a professional and diligent manner. We wish him well in all his future endeavours.”

Smith defeated Gibbons by an 8-5 vote last November for the post of president after Lloyd Fray opted not to seek re-election. Gibbons was subsequently returned as treasurer for another three-year term.
