ANATOMY OF A CRICKET CLUB AGM

Take a look at this fly on the wall account of Alder CC's AGM as reported live on Twitter by Andy Aitchison @AndyAitcho

We all have them. Most are boring but are necessary for the running of any cricket club. We just thought Alder's goings on superbly captured what it takes to run a club - and a bit more.

Have a read: 

"At the Alder CC AGM exciting stuff, live updates here

There is officially enough people here for the AGM to be valid (20) Including Brian. Hemel sends apologies. Ravi just arrived

Chairman’s address, always a highlight.....

Praise for Naz dealing with a difficult situation with players leaving at start of season - highlight away to Spring View chasing 240

Secretary address - possibly the most difficult season off the field in 40 years, some positives 2B fair No overseas next year.

Diamond anniversary of club this year. 60 years Nalgo/Alder some events planned this year.

Ambrose 2nd XI report. Thanks players for availability, struggled without Spee. Players stepped in. Most +ve young lads excellent

Special mention Callum and Adam youngsters. Should have won in cup with 9 men. Not in bad position in skippers opinion.

Fordy, similar to Ambrose. Suggests when 3s are short 1s and 2a can play with 10 to avoid fines. 

Sunday -praises youngsters. We need to look after them. Pleasure to captain successful side. Best game was Sefton, 30 points from promotion

Mike Dunn “we need a lot of fundraising, any ideas?”

Paul Roberts helps ensure Alder regain Clubmark - well done

The room is officially now being set up for a party tomorrow so it’s a break. And resume in pool room in 10. Couldn’t make it up
