Dear Parents and Friends,
Football would not take place each weekend without the support of hundreds of thousands of volunteers. For most youth teams, it is the parents of players who give up their time to ensure their sons and daughters can take to the pitch and enjoy a game of football.
There are a wide variety of jobs involved with running a club, especially in those that run multiple teams like ours. A club must have a committee and Chalgrove Cavaliers FC will have vacancies at our Annual General Meeting on 10th May 2018 for the following important core roles, without which the club will not be able to function:
- Match Secretary
The Chairperson does not have specific duties but will oversee the work carried out by other officers. The Chair will organise and preside over committee meetings.
The Secretary is the official contact between the club, the County FA and the football leagues. The Secretary’s duties include: County FA affiliation, league membership, all correspondence, maintenance of club records including financial records, maintaining a player register.
The Treasurer must manage and administer the club’s finances, maintaining an income and expenditure record and balance sheet, which must be presented at the club’s AGM. An annual financial statement prepared and bank account managed in the club’s name.
The Fixtures Secretary is responsible for coordinating matches and ensuring that pitches are available at the right time.
Chalgrove Cavaliers FC always welcomes new volunteers to take an active role in running the club. Whether you’re already involved as a parent, grandparent, relative or friend to a player or just want to give some free time to a local club, your approach will be welcomed. Speak to one of the team coaches to advise them of your interest or contact us directly at our club website:
The club depends on your support and if you take on a new role full training will be provided, but if volunteers are not found for these four core roles in the club we will have no choice but to cease its activity and the players will need to find another club to play football for.
If you want to find out how the Committee works, please come along to our next meeting at 8pm on Thursday 12th April in the dining room of The Red Lion, Chalgrove.
Please help your club to survive.
