Youth Grant monies have been spent on a second net and coaching and playing equipment including first aid kit and a boundary rope. The focus for next season will be to replace the artificial wicket. EC has written to the Town Council and the Young peoples ‘Hub’ to ask for financial support for this project.
Discussion followed on the fact that it had been mainly second team players who have attended nets to date. It was agreed that potential first team players should be selected on their willingness to train regularly on Wednesdays and to make themselves available on a regular basis. Selection after 31st April would also only be of fully paid up members.
Selection will take place at 7pm after nets on Wednesdays. It is the responsibility of all players to let the captains and the selection committee know their availability by then.
Youth Report A full youth fixture list for U11, U13 and U15 is running with training on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and matches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Any help from members with these would be most welcome.
AOB SB asked if a second boundary rope could be bought. Committee agreed. Could a winder be constructed?
