2. 1991 AGM Minutes.

2.1 Matters arising none; minutes read by M Heslington.

The Chairman had a very enjoyable season. He stated that as long as people are prepared to do work off the pitch, the club would continue to thrive. More members are still needed despite 2 useful additions. The Chairman was to stand down this year to concentrate on other things and thanked people for their support over the years. Vote of thanks for work. (This report was made in between items 6 & 7 due to circumstances beyond the Chairman’s control).

4. Secretary’s REPORT.

The secretary thanked people for their support in the SAL exercises (see appendix). He apologised for no copies of the 1991 AGM minutes at the meeting and promised not to repeat. Vote of thanks for work this year.

5. Treasurers REPORT.

5.1 (What’s the ~ vehicle damage asked S George). Finances in good health a minimal loss of~22.61 over the year. Membership subscriptions increased by 1 and 1/2 members. Net fees showed a slight decline- Match fees showed an increase due to more matches and more people paying them. Deposit a/c interest minimal. Fund raising income down due to the prizes element being taken out of profits/loss equation, this accounts for income being lower. Kit expenditure increased considerably in 1991/2. Net hire has increased due to the Sports Centre + Lichfield D.C. raising charges from 8.25 to 9. The matter of non-payment was resolved during the year. Pitch hire was not paid for the washed out game v Wall. The breakdown of the M.C.C.C. payment is as follows

3.75 Dental
52.50 Public Liability
20.00 All Risks (kit)

(The remaining 17.50 is MCCC subscription)

The donation referred to Flu’s funeral, vehicle damage of~5O was paid to P Gardner for the replacement of his sunroof. The 16 was the deficit at the club dinner; (in future we will ask for the meals to be served). 2 old 5p pieces and a cheque for 7 from S George written off.

Petty cash        17.19

Current a/c 293.94

Deposit a/c 122.37

5.3 Deferred to item 13. P Willis asked P Fearon about the float, which is 5.00, so actual loss for the year is 17.61.

Vote of thanks for valuable work done, M Pinfield

6. SOCIAL Secretary’s REPORT

6.1 Meal at Bell Inn poor. Will look elsewhere next year. No pre-ordering.

6.2 Test match was enjoyed by all who attended. Suggestion of different venue next year.

Vote of thanks for collecting cash at dinner to P Gardner. R Jennett and M Heslington thanked for organising dinner.

Beer break at 8.43 pm


The captain thanked M Pinfield for hard work. He also stressed importance of work off pitch. A good fixture list has been developed, and our results have been reasonable, only losing 2 Sunday games. The captain hoped to keep the same fixtures. Younger players are needed, and hopefully 2 or 3 will be available from December. The captain will hope to continue next year and win more games.

Vote of thanks from M Pinfield for years work.
