Chairmans update September

 

Sorry for the lack of an update in the past couple of months it has been an extremely busy two months.

Cricket

The club completed a successful season on the field with the 4th XI Winning the NSCL Div 2 and the 1st XI and 2nd XI runners up in their respective leagues. In some ways it has been a tough year with availability at it worst for many seasons. I have reformed the cricket committee which met for the first time in August and comprised of players from all levels of the club as well as parents and coaches. There was a frank and open debate on the current issues at the club and the committee has accepted the challenge of working through those issues over the winter. The committee meets again on the 23rd Sept.

For interest those attending the committee were

Myself, Ian Shrubsole, Tom Baker, Lloyd Davies, Matt Hankins, Rob Maggs, Mathan, Jon Green, Alex Muse and James Brown apologies from Fran Wilson.

Groundsman

Gordon Gill the club’s head groundsman for the past 12 seasons has left the club and myself and the committee would like to thank him for all the work he has done for the club over those seasons and wish him all the best for the future. Assistant Groundsman Stuart Antell will stand in as interim Head Groundsman for the next few months and the club will advertise for a new Head Groundsman in December with a view to the successful candidate starting in March.

Ground

The club has had planning permission approved for the netting along the white wall which will be in place for the start of next season

Trustees

At the AGM on Nov 6th there will be several changes to the make up of the committee with Treasurer Mike Priscott and Cricket Director Ian Shrubsole standing down and two new positions being created to increase the number of trustees to nine. This is because I feel that the workload at the club continues to increase and needs to be shared amongst more trustees. The committee are actively seeking possible candidates for all positions.

Car parking

The committee has decided to clarify the winter parking situation for Rugby home matches with all cars having to pay and display. There will be grass parking subject to the weather and other events at the club.

Hospitality

The club continues is fast becoming one of the most popular venues in the City for hosting parties and social events as well as attracting weddings.
