At this time of year we are anticipating things to come but I would like to start by taking this opportunity to thank our outgoing Saturday captain Andrew Tremellen. Although his final season in charge did not go out in a blaze of scorching summer weather or of scintillating scores on the board I would like to reflect on the fact that under his leadership the club won the CDCA Div2 in 2008 and then historically in 2009 won CDCA Div1. I think this is a record that he can look back on with pride and on behalf of the club I would like to thank him. I would also like to congratulate Andy and Belinda on the arrival of Max Thomas Tremellen.
Now to the future, I am delighted that the club finds itself in a very enviable position of having the volunteer services of two highly qualified coaches in the form of the brothers Jarvis. I hope as a club we take full advantage of their generous offer of help.
Congratulations need to go to James Harmer and Andy Pegg for being elected to the positions of Saturday captain and vice-captain. I think I am right in saying that this is the youngest leadership team we have ever had and hope that their youth and vigour leads to a successful season. I wish them all the luck in their new roles.
