Speaking of The Sunrisers’ appointment of Griffin as Head Coach, Regional Director of Women’s Cricket, Danni Warren, commented:
“I have known Trevor for a while, through mutual players, and having worked with him over the last 6 months linking with London Spirit. Every time I worked with Trevor it became obvious that a more skilled and passionate candidate would be hard to find. Trevor’s knowledge of the women’s game, both here in England and internationally, is immense and something I cannot wait to be able to tap in to.
“Trevor and I share a vision to develop the talent in our region, whilst embedding sustainable pathways that will allow players to thrive. Women’s cricket has a wonderful opportunity to really grow and Trevor is a key component in the workforce I am looking to develop for the Sunrisers. I am so pleased to be welcoming Trevor on board and to be able to work closely with him.”
