Minutes of the AGM held on 8 February 2018 were circulated and proposed as a true record by Chappel & Wakes Colne seconded Gt Bromley and agreed by all with no matters arising that were not covered elsewhere on the agenda.
Chairman’s opening remarks – Bob gave a warm welcome to everyone attending and introduced David Beales who is entering a new team for 2019 BEALES CCC although the name may change – Unfortunately we have lost 5 teams this year for various reasons and therefore in 2019 there will only be a Wednesday League with 7 teams taking part. The Colchester Trophies Final was very competitive but unfortunately ended prematurely due to a thunder storm, Brightlingsea awarded the game to Great Bromley as they felt they would have won had the weather not intervened. The 2 Chairman’s Trophy finals were also very competitive with the Tuesday League winners being University A and Wednesday Chappel & Wakes Colne. The League winners were Tuesday Brightlingsea and Wednesday Great Bromley. Finally Bob thanked Chris at Colchester Trophies for his continued sponsorship.
Treasurer’s report circulated, expenditure exceeded income by £73.25 leaving a balance of £235.53, proposed by Chappel & Wakes Colne, seconded Boxted as a true record, no issues raised. It was agreed that once again we do not need to charge any fees to the teams playing in the league this year as our sponsor provides all the Trophies which is the main cost. However to keep costs down we will not provide Handbooks in future, fixtures will be sent out to the team contacts and can then be found on the website.
Election of Officers – Both existing officers agreed to stand and there were no other nominations, therefore it was proposed by Chappel & Wakes Colne and seconded by Beales CCC that they both be re-elected and passed unanimously.
Sponsorship – Chris advised he was happy to continue sponsoring the League by providing all of the Trophies and everyone once again thanked him for his support.
Proposals for Rule changes – 1. Leg side wides – Proposed by Beales CCC and seconded Chappel & Wakes Colne that we dispense with leg side wides and adopt normal rules for wides in most limited overs games. 4 teams voted for with Eight Ash Green against – Passed
2. Bob proposed a change to the end of year Trophy games as we now only have 1 League. Teams finishing First & Second will play for the Colchester Trophy – Teams finishing third to sixth will play for the Chairman’s Trophy this will mean that all teams have something to play for right up to the end of the season. This was seconded by Chappel & Wakes Colne and passed unanimously.
AOB – None
Meeting closed at 7.55 being followed by the awards ceremony.
