Happy New Year to all members, parents, grandparents and friends of our wonderful club!
I know cricket seems a long way away, but I can assure you planning is in full swing. As I type our coaches and match managers are meeting to plan for the upcoming Junior season, we had our January Management meeting last night (the final one before the AGM) and Dave has been working hard finalising our fixtures for 2020.
A reminder that our AGM is set for Sunday 19th January starting @ 19.30 in the Pavilion. I urge all members to do their best and attend to have your say on how the club is run. The AGM is the most important gathering of the year and I look forward to seeing you there. Please find an Agenda attached to the right of these words.
Thanks to all those that responded to my plea to pay membership early, it has really assisted cashflow over the winter. Thanks also to those that have put their name forward to fill positions on Management in 2020. However we are still looking for a Bar Secretary, Sunday XI Captain and Fixture Secretary, it is not too late to put your hand up. Please contact Steve Gilmore or myself for more details before the AGM. They are all really important positions and we must fill them. Please, please, please don't leave it to someone else.
Our Junior Band Night is still taking place on the 1st February and we are planning a St Patrick's Party on the 14th March. Please put both dates in the diary, more details to follow....
I say it in every mail because it is true; NECC is as much your club as it is mine and all of us on Management. If you have any ideas, suggestions, observations or thoughts about anything re. our club then please let me know.
Many thanks for reading my mails and with very best wishes
Chairman, North Enfield Cricket Club
