Present Andy Mason, PM, EC RJ, AC, AR AB.
Minutes of 3rd August. Accepted.
Matters arising. Discussed in the meeting.
Captain’s report. AC reviewed the season as being disrupted by the deduction of 16 points resulting in a third bottom finishing position rather than 5th. Hoped to have a more settled squad next year committed to regular practice. AR very pleased with the efforts of younger players and the support of older players leading to winning of the league. The contribution of individual players to both teams was discussed along with plans for next season. Action. Captains to expand at the AGM.
Discipline. Paul agreed to stay as Chairman as long as he had the support of a strong working committee and that all members of the club signed up to reinforce the ‘Spirit of the laws of the game’ at Uplyme. He believed that Ashley and Adam had learnt from the experience and that they would lead by example. He also proposed a club disciplinary committee to deal with any members who failed to observe the code of behaviour. Andy added that ill discipline has a knock on effect with regard to the reputation of the club and consequently the attitude of sponsors, parents and the League.
