Christmas message from new MCC Chairman

21 Dec 2020


Dear all,
Firstly, I would like to thank all those that attended the club AGM in November in what was hopefully the first and last by ZOOM, special mention to Ed Puddick who did a great job of choreographing the evening.

I am extremely honoured to be voted in as Chairman, and thank Pete Mathias for all his efforts over 40+ years and two terms as chair.

Congratulations also go to Glen Mathias and Ray & Liz day who all received life memberships for the many years of help and support they have contributed towards MCC.

Moving forward. Behind the scenes, plans for next season are underway. The committee have decided upon a figure we can use towards our Net refurbishment plan, we are currently gathering quotes before selecting a contractor, and will have these works complete and ready for use at the start of the outdoor season.

We also intend to change the way we communicate and switch to a multi-platform media system allowing app based content for team selection and availability, which will benefit all teams across the club.

It is of paramount importance that we safeguard the future of our club for future generations; great emphasis should be put into our Juniors, supporting their development through to senior level. Si Lee has kindly taken over the role of junior co-ordinator from Steve Jones, who has performed the role for many years with great success - Thank you Steve for your many many hours of work. If you would like to offer support in some way (such as coaching) please get in contact with Si.

Finally, as we look forward to hopefully a full unrestricted season next year and the return of tea’s, Social events and normality!! I hope everyone has a happy and safe Christmas and new year!
