A GLANCE AT OUR SECRETARY’S AGM REPORT ON SEASON 2020

Whatever happens we will keep going with the same approach, it’s what we do and it makes us what we are.

To say simply that this was a very different season would be massively to understate the impact of COVID-19 on us all. I can remember nothing remotely similar and hope we all do not to have to live through anything like it in the future.

With a hint of irony I remind us all of the probably erroneously translated and allegedly Confucian curse “may you live in interesting times”. We certainly did and the 22 no less, Love Lane L&DCC “Covid Cups” were perhaps small cogwheels in the national machine’s determination to play cricket if we could do so safely, but they showed our collective attitude superbly.

We all played our part and we all rose to the challenges; the feedback has been pretty good. I have always been proud to be part of the LL L&DCC but never more so than in 2020.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the ECB, to the LCF, our club officials, our players, our umpires, our Management Committee, our club consultation groups and to our sponsor Love Lane Breweries. Playing for 22 boxes of beer was a stroke of genius from LLB’s MD, it encapsulated an attitude and we look forward to working with them again in hopefully saner times next year.

Our Chair often says, “keep going” and he’s right and we will, we are already planning in detail for 2021. To misquote Donald Rumsfeld fairly considerably, there are known knowns; i.e.there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. If we look through the history of cricket, it is the final category that tends to be the difficult one…..

Whatever happens we will keep going with the same approach, it’s what we do and it makes us what we are.
