Minutes of AGM 2008 accepted.
Matters arising. To be discussed in meeting.
President. Opening statement Andy Mason expressed his concern that in recent years the club had been drifting. He called upon all members to show greater dedication to game. There must be no repeats of ill discipline. In future all players will be asked to sign 1st XI registration forms to prevent mistakes which cost the club a 10 point fine. To support the playing side he would like to see more of the experienced members of the club actively supporting the bar and field sub committees. There is a need to raise standards both on and off the field. With a positive, ambitious attitude the club will go forward. It has a growing pool of players and a viable youth policy. Eventually he would like to see the Sunday side playing in a local league to help blood young players for the Saturday XIs.
Fundraising for mobile net. £300 from Candles on the Cobb £500 from Dorset Playing Fields Association applied for.
Discipline. Some sponsors considering options. North Perrott in doubt.
Charity games established. Candles on the Cobb and RNLI.
Roger stepping down. To be offered Life membership along with Marion in recognition of all the work done for the club. Proposed Paul Messer. Seconded Andy Mason. With thanks for all the work Roger has done for the club.

A big thanks to ex players Rodney Holmes and Chris Sweetland and players Mike Holding and David Jones for helping with teams. Awards session held at Woodroffe and well received.
Teams need further integration and opportunities within the club. Must get 17/18 year olds i.e Sam Challis, Jack Lamb Wilson, Ollie Borgeat , established as first team players next season and establish some of the 15 /16 year olds as regular members of the 2nd XI. There needs to be constructive practice sessions for 15s+ at the club linked to a senior club session.
