Sixes Organising Committee

Richard Lockwood (Chairman and Head Scorer)

Locky arrived in Chiang Mai in 2008 hoping to take a break from being fully involved in international cricket. Little did he know he would find a tournament with more teams and more players than the World Cup or that Thailand Women’s cricket team would play in a T20 World Cup and are now the 8th ranked country in ODI cricket. He has helped bring computer scoring to Chiang Mai and took over as Sixes Chairman in 2019 and finally got a tournament under his belt in 2023.

Rob 'Chops' Bernard

Rob’s first Chiang Mai Sixes was in 2006 when he was kindly adopted by the Yarrambat team as well as making many great friends. A former player of average ability, Chops now enjoys his place in the commentary box and acting as MC and has now spent the last year living in Thailand rather than coming as a tourist.

Paul 'Hagar' Jones (Head Umpire and Referee)

First umpired at the Chiang Mai Sixes in 1992 and he has missed only one year (1993) until ill health prevented him from attending in 2023 and again in 2024. In 2007 he took over from Tony Gough as Head Umpire and manages his motley crew at the Sixes every year. Hagar is waiting for an operation and can't travel overseas so we are grateful to Herbie Whitlock who took over as head umpire in 2023 and is standing again in 2024.

Janet Kirwin (Treasurer)

Janet first came to the Sixes as a spectator in 2007 as she arrived in Chiang Mai on being offered a highpower job in the Tobacco Industry. She has played in the Ladies Competition since 2009 and has enjoyed being part of the Chiang Mai Sixes ever since. With her great aptitude for figures and an understanding of what the Sixes stands for, Janet kindly agreed to take over as treasurer.

Ray 'Lemon' Matti

Ray has taken his place on the Sixes Committee after a long association with the Sixes with Ios Malakas and before that Harmony Lizards that stretches back into the 1990s. Ray offered to help us finding sponsorship using his contacts in Bangkok. This time next year...

Awn Pattamaporn (Bar Manager)

Awn has been on the organizing committee since 2004, and everyone has benefited from her management of the Boundary Bar at the ground and at the other Sixes venues. In 2001, Awn joined the junior cricket program of the CMSCA and she served in various capacities until 2006.

David Walker

First came to the Sixes as a player in 1996 and joined the Committee in 2002 after moving to Chiang Mai. He chaired the Organising Committee for eight years before standing down in 2018. David worked with the local junior cricket programme for many years and is still heavily involved in cricket at the local level.

George Appleton (Teams Co-ordinator and Operations Manager)

He first came to Chiang Mai with Darjeeling and was Chairman for the 2019 tournament. George is still very much involved in the Chiang Mai Sixes and is again acting as teams co-ordinatior and operations manager.

Stewart Ashby (Functions Manager)

We are delighted to welcome Stewart on to the committee, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge from his background in hospitality. Friend to many at the tournament from those who have visited his establishment, O.M.G. Bar and Restaurant. He has joined the committee to help with the events and vendors as well as looking after advertising and sponsorship.
