Cricket Scotland enjoyed its best-ever financial year in 2009, making a pre-tax surplus of £135,000.

The increased turnover was a result of increased ICC and sportscotland investment, and participation in the World Twenty20 in England last year. As a result, Cricket Scotland's financial reserves were boosted to £164,000.

Additional investment in the performance development programme enabled a greatly increased playing programme for all national and regional age group teams. Although the national team failed to qualify for the 2011 World Cup, they retained their One-Day International status and, with it, a place in the ICC's High Performance Programme for the next four years with a confirmed playing programme.

"It is clear that our national side is going through a period of transition," said Keith Oliver, chairman of Cricket Scotland. "So it was pleasing to be able to set aside significant reserves to support future success - and to consolidate our award-winning development programme in such an impressive manner."

"We are delighted that our annual report is showing such positive growth across all aspects of the game," added Roddy Smith, Crick Scotland's chief executive. "Increased ICC funding enabled us to invest more in all our activities, and our structures and development programmes are in excellent shape for the future.

"It is especially pleasing in difficult economic times to report a healthy surplus for the year, which will enable us to continue to invest in the sport's further development in Scotland."
