Dear Member,

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a good Christmas and let’s hope that 2021 is a better year than the last!

It is my pleasure to inform you that our Club AGM has been set for 19:30 on Tuesday 2nd February 2021. As we are bound by COVID restrictions, the AGM will be via a Zoom call this year.

Management Committee Changes

I’m sad to say that a number of the Management Committee have decided to resign, and whilst I'm pleased to say we will still see them around the club, I'd personally like to recognise the following people for all of their dedication, hard work and commitment to Worthing Cricket Club;

  • Tim Dunn – Chairman
  • 1st XI Captain – Martyn Swift
  • Amanda Wheeler – Welfare Officer, Junior Coordinator and Junior Coach
  • Stella Harris – Treasurer
  • Lee Shorter - Head of Junior Cricket
  • Adrian Swift - Club Development Officer
  • Gareth Lehman – Junior Coach
Selecting New Committee Members

In light of the above, one of the key items for the AGM Agenda will be recruiting for the now vacant roles.

Under the terms of our constitution, should you wish to apply for one of the roles you must submit this to me in writing via my email address by no later than 14-days prior to the AGM - therefore by the end of Tuesday 19th January 2021.

It would also be helpful for you to provide a short paragraph on why you think you are suitable for the role, as this will be required in the event of more than one person applying for a role.  Please note: 1XI captain is decided by the Cricket Committee and is not available for application through the AGM.

You are also welcome to apply for any other current committee role, this will have to be within the same timescales noting that incumbents who are willing to stand again for re-election need not inform me in writing.

Once the deadline has passed, I will name the individuals applying for each role, together with their short paragraph (if more than one applicant), when I issue the AGM Agenda, this will be no later than 26th January 2021.

If you have any AOB for the meeting, this must also be submitted to me in writing by 19th January 2021.

Attending the AGM

As the AGM will be via Zoom this year, I will need you to confirm your attendance by contacting me with your email address, no later than Friday 29th January 21 so I can send you the joining instructions.

I will also supply you with a link so that you can vote for you preferred candidate where we have more than one applicant for a role.

Each Senior Member is entitled to vote (this includes Juniors that play Senior Cricket) but you must attend the AGM to be able to vote.

I look forward to hearing from you all soon.

Many thanks and regards,

Simon
