First things first, let’s keep you up to date with the changes on the committee, after years of good service to the club, Craig Forsyth stands down as Chairman and is replaced by Hon Secretary Mick Roberts.
The new Hon Sec is now Gail Bramwell. Last seasons First XV Captain Tom Clarke takes up the position of Vice Chairman.
Tony Venables who has done so much unseen work for many years, has stepped down as the Bar Manager, we have no one interested in taking up that position, so if any member thinks they can help us, then give me a call.
Paul Hayward remains at Hon Treasurer, Gareth Withers stays as Mini & Junior Chairman, Matt Robinson as Ground Manager, Crayon Phillips as Fixture Secretary, Social Secretary is Connor Price, International Tickets Secretary is Steve Meszar and Sal Rigione as Clubhouse Manager.
The new Committee would like to thank the retiring officers for their many years of service to the club.
