Dear Mods

The AGM was held at the clubhouse on Thursday 30th May 2019.

Thanks to those of you who were in attendance. I won't name you but you know who you are. There were 17 in total, which is a decent number, but it could be a lot better, and hopefully next season it will be. Thanks also to those who sent their apologies.

Main points:

Officials were elected as follows:

President: Paul Challenor, Chairperson: Chris Roy, Vice-chair: TBC, General Secretary: Gary Lovelace, WYL Secretary: Chris Roy, Treasurer: James France

1st Team Managers: Callum Robinson/Aodhan Brownlee

2nd Team Managers: Matt Gibbons/Josh Smith

3rd Team Manager: Olly Bausur, Assistant: Pierre Domel

4th Team Manager: Tony Mullin

Players Rep: Dan Kluska

Association Rep: David Cowie

Social Secretary: Jack Downing

Social Media: Olly Bausur

Thanks to all those continuing in their roles and the new additions. It is a great thing to have so many people stepping up to help run the club.


There was then a presentation by Tony Mullin (attached), which featured the past and current state of the club, and plans for changing the way we do things from next season. Please take the time to read it as it will affect YOU. The finer details are still be to decided, but the recommendations were put to the AGM and unanimously agreed. Hopefully you will all support it and it will be a massive help in improving our performance and level of success on the pitch.

PRE-SEASON TRAINING will commence on Wednesday 3rd July at Tinshill Top, starting at 6.30pm. Please get the word out to any potential new players, as well as fully supporting this yourselves. Training is going to be a big part of the new way of doing things at the club.

ANNUAL SUBS were increased by £5 (less than inflation!), to £200 for the season, in two instalments of £100, or a one off payment of £180 (10% discount). Rates for full-time students will be discounted by 50%.

That's all for now. I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

Have a good month off, but remember, if we're serious about bouncing back after the disappointment of last season, then we need to be as fit, if not fitter than the opposition, so it starts now. DON'T BE TURNING UP FOR TRAINING HAVING DONE NOTHING SINCE THE END OF THE SEASON!!!
