Over 200 Members attend AGM


This week saw the Somerset County Cricket Club AGM take place.

Over 200 people packed in to the County Room of the Colin Atkinson Pavilion to witness the night’s events.

After a brief introduction from President Richard Parsons, CEO Guy Lavender read out the names of those Members who had sadly passed away in the last 12 months.

Chairman Andy Nash then presented his report which outlined the Club’s main strategic aims.

Director of Cricket Matt Maynard then took to the stage to discuss the 2016 season and to outline his plans for the forthcoming season.  During his speech he exclusively revealed that Chris Rogers would be re-joining the Club for four months to act as Batting Coach and Player Mentor.

Following a number of questions from the floor, Club Treasurer Malcolm Derry presented the Club’s financial report before being re-elected as Honorary Treasurer whilst Dixon- Walsh were voted to continue as the Club auditors.

Members then voted to approve proposed minor updates to the Club Rules.

After the meeting was drawn to a close, Chief Executive Guy Lavender said: “It was superb to see over 200 Members at the AGM.  It provides us with a great opportunity to discuss every aspect of the Club, both on and off the field.  Most importantly it enables us to answer the questions that our Members have and, as always, there were many that covered a whole range of topics.  We will of course continue that dialogue regarding the issues that were raised which effect both Somerset and the game as a whole in the months ahead.”
