Cricket Club prepares for 2008 Season

Winter may almost be upon us, but Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club are already preparing for the 2008 season. 

Over 80 tons of topsoil have been spread on the outfield of pitches at Flordon and new sight screens have been purchased, the club’s annual meeting heard. 

The club is also planning a number of fund-raising events including quiz and casino evenings to raise funds for an £8,000 electronic scoreboard. 

David Johnson stepped down as chairman and was thanked for his efforts and made an honorary life member of the club. David agreed to stay on the club committee as vice-chairman. His place as chairman was taken by club stalwart Tony Smith. Duncan Pigg was re-elected club president and other officers are: 

Secretary, Richard Ellis Junior; fixtures and results secretary, Richard Ellis Junior; Treasurer, Susan Ellis; Selection Secretary, Matt Ellis; first team captain, Matt Ellis; first team vice captain, Dave Cosford; second team captain, Tristan Hunt; second team vice captain, Shaun Barker; third team captain, Duncan Shearwood; third team vice-captain, Richard Ellis Senior; Under-11 Manager, Matt Steward; Under-13 Manager, Sam Smith; Groundsman, Assad Abbas; Bar Manager, Al Watts; Auditor, David Johnson. Committee, officers plus Russell Cooper, Dave Cosford, Dale Clarke and Peter Steward. 

The club is looking for a volunteer scorer for its first team which next season will be playing in Division One of the Norfolk League, with the second team in Division Five and the thirds in Division 10. The meeting heard that the club is hoping to strengthen its ranks with a number of new players and would be running youth league teams at Under-11 and Under-13 levels with an Under-16s team playing friendlies. 

It was agreed to introduce an annual subscription for players on top of match fees. Club nets will be held on Sunday evenings at Easton College from the beginning of January.
