Cricket Ireland are today meeting with their development officers to discuss a strategic plan that could see their six roles deleted as part of a restructure.

The governing body hope to complete their review process by the start of the new season in April, when they intend for all six development officers to be employed directly through the provinces.

A spokesperson for Cricket Ireland told RTÉ Sport that there were no guarantees the six individuals currently employed would be rehired by the provinces but said they would be in a 'good position' to reapply for the roles.

Brian O'Rourke (Leinster), Jim Doran (Munster), Simon Johnston, Nigel Jones (both Northern Cricket Union), and Brian Allen, Colin Manson (both North West) are today meeting with Cricket Ireland.

Cricket Ireland said no staff were being made redundant today and there would be no reduction in funding.

The proposal would see the provincial unions employ the officers as the central body cedes the responsibility to grow the grassroots to the regional bodies.
