The AGM was well attended last Saturday, possibly helped by the glorious sunshine. Reports were given by the Chairman, Andrew Manners, the Treasurer, Terry Saunderson, the Social Secretary, John Duchin, the Club Captain, Roy Sturgeon and the Fixtures and Club Secretary, Chris Knightley. All the officers were re-elected with the exception of Dan Osterbery, the "Webmaster", who is leaving the Committee due to work commitments and Roy Sturgeon is standing down as Club Captain and handing over the reins to the capable hands of Simon Cotton.
Chris Knightley will be preparing minutes of the meeting.
Prior to the meeting there was a well attended "nets" practice and Ryan had a good turn out for the Kids Club.
A big "thank you" must go to Adam Cockcroft who took on the difficult task of fixing the cradle and did an excellent job.
Yes, that's right, the MCC will be facing the MCC. For the first time in our Club's history we are very proud to be playing host to our namesakes, the 'other' MCC, Marylebone Cricket Club. More accustomed to playing at the hallowed grounds of Lords, a team from the MCC will be wielding the willow in Menorca the weekend of 12th April 2014. Come and enjoy what will surely be a historic couple of days in the history of our club!
Saturday saw the first nets of the new year with a rather sparce turnout, so come on chaps wash the mould off your cricket shoes and come and get some practise in! Awesome new nets await!
Ryan is coaching the young, aspiring, next generation of MCC players so bring along any boys or girls who would like to have a go !!
Great turn out on Saturday people!!
Well done, and a big 'Thank You', to all those who helped put up the new nets and lay the new AstroTurf at the club. It was not all work, work work though and a hearty brunch was cooked up by Dan ably assisted by Nico and Ollie. Dan must also be congratulated for his quick thinking when he couldn't get the tea urn to work by supplying the workers with mugs of ....red wine!
