Report from Club Chairman
reported on a successful season with the club moving in the right
direction both on and off the field. He felt it was in the healthiest
position for a number of years. One of the big challenges will be
attracting and keeping volunteers and the club needs to ensure that
experienced volunteers and committee members stay with the club.
The club needs to
challenge itself to ensure it is “doing things for the right
reasons” and work hard to make individual teams self sufficient. He
had enjoyed his first year as chair and was looking forward to the
future with great optimism.
Wayne stated that sponsorship now came almost exclusively from contacts from within a teams via coaches and players.
Mel Perkins praised
the chairman for his work throughout the year. It had been a very
successful year despite the club not winning any trophies, although the
Under-12s had won a sporting award. Despite this it had been the most
successful year for some time with the club ethos right and everyone
working together. The adult sides were working together as a single unit
with 20 players signed for both the Saturday and Sunday sides. Younger
players were also coming through into adult football. The club currently
has 235 playing members and 50 signed on volunteers and officers. Teams
played a total of 137 league and cup matches with the under-19s
finishing in the highest position of any team.
The club had
enjoyed an excellent season on the discipline front with only 22
cautions and one sending off. The cautions had been – five for
dissent, one for persistent infringement, 15 for unsporting behaviour
and one for delaying the taking of a free kick. The sending off had been
for receiving two yellow cards. The Under-19s had been the subject of a
disciplinary charge, which has been dealt with.
Tim Hudson reported
that finances were in a healthy position with funds now centralised with
Nat West bank. A total of £810 had been raised from the 100 Club and
Steve Raven praised the work of the treasurer and assistant treasurer in simplifying the accounts.
There were no
proposed changes to the club constitution.
