Nigel told the meeting that Mark Lambert would be stepping down after 9 years as Club Secretary. Frances Rogers had been nominated to take over.

 

Captains’ Reports:

James Mumford gave a report on behalf of the 1st team. He stated that they had found the 2012 season much harder than last year. Availability had been a bit of a problem and had finished mid-table. James Chapple was the team’s most consistent bowler. Dave Downey was the top run-scorer for the first team. Danny Cheema reported that the Sunday Second XI was improving all the time and they had had a good season.

 

 

Colts’ Report:

Steve Williams reported that the colts’ season had been badly affected by rain. The U11s had played 5 out of their 8 league games, but that the other age groups had played less than that. He believed that had the U14s not had so many matches cancelled they would have been competing for the league title. Steve also said that he had attended a Mid-Surrey Colts Meeting, where special mention was made of Imogen Neely, as a talented cricketer. Steve stated that he hoped there would be 2 more club members who had passed Level 2 coaching, next year.

Claire Neely – Claire told the meeting that Long Ditton had entered a junior side in Darren Talbot’s Indoor Cricket League at Tolworth.This had been managed in the main by Oliver Neely. It had been very enjoyable, but also a steep learning curve.

 

Hon. Treasurer’s Report

On behalf of the Hon. Treasurer, the Chairman reported that the club had made a loss this year. Bar takings and food income were significantly down, due to the bad weather. The club also had to absorb the cost of repairs to the roof following vandalism. The nets were also refurbished and a portable net was bought. Whilst the club received grants for this equipment, the cost was not completely covered by these grants.

Monies held in the bank were generally healthy however and overheads were down. The Fuller’s Brewery Loan loan stood at £6,735.04, as at 31st October 2012. With the agreement of members at the AGM, the Hon. Treasurer proposed that subscriptions remain the same for the 2013 season. This was agreed.

The Chairman explained that the club should into an arrangement which gave the club tax relief. This was proposed by Sylvia Attwood and seconded by John Parkins.

The Chairman reported that Stewart Hinchliffe was stepping down as Hon. Club Treasurer. The Chairman thanked Stewart for all his hard work for the club. It was hoped that Laurence Hegarty would take over as treasurer for the club.

Back in the summer, LDCC’s committee nominated me to attend an awards evening at the Oval, for volunteers in cricket. A very pleasant evening was had, even seeing Surrey win (Obviously this wasn’t in the Championship!).

Somehow, these details made their way to Elmbridge Borough Council, who held their Sports Awards this evening, to which I had been invited. The last award to be presented was the Mayor’s Award, for Outstanding Services to Sport in the borough. I was very surprised, but highly delighted, to have been awarded this tonight. (The Mayor was very pleased, as he was born in Long Ditton). Thank you to everyone from the club who nominated me for the award in the summer – much appreciated.

Another person who deserves a mention is Adam Barlow, who has clocked over 100 hours volunteering for Long Ditton. He took part in a cricket volunteering scheme and had to get others to sign off his record. These hours have been recorded by the ECB at Lord’s, so hopefully Adam should be receiving some recognition of these efforts soon.
