LOCAL WOMEN sports administrators said the inclusion of three women in the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Board of Directors recently is welcome and an indication of the times.

Jamaica’s Diann Campbell was one of three women appointed to CWI’s board.

Louise Victor-Frederick of St Lucia joined Campbell as the other new appointee alongside accomplished Trinidadian attorney-at-law Debra Coryat-Patton, who makes a return to the board.
