    Please note that the start-time for the AGM is 7.30, not 7.00 as was mistakenly printed on the original agenda.

    I’m heading over to Brooke tonight to watch the U13s ECB Quarter-Final so there is no specific U15 practice. U15s are welcome to join-in with the seniors at 6.30.

    A big thank-you to Rich, Nick, Matt & Ellie plus everyone else who helped to make the Beer Festival weekend enjoyable and profitable. Great effort!

The biggest and most welcome surprise at Great Melton Cricket Club’s A.G.M. was the election of former skipper Mark Scott, as Vice-Chairman. Mark Scott, who joined Melton from Norwich Wanderers in 2008, proved to be one of the club’s most successful captains during his 3 years at the helm, skippering the First Team to the Alliance Division 4 and 3 championships in 2010 & 2011 before achieving a 5th place finish in Division 2 in 2012. Having been away for 7 years to concentrate on his family and his other passion, golf, he has returned in a non-playing role, replacing Phil Bugg who has had to stand down because of work commitments. His experience and cricket knowledge should prove invaluable as the club moves forward.

There was a bit of re-shuffling of officers’ roles with last year’s B Team captain, Matt Rushton taking over as Head of Junior Coaching and Eusha Fawad and Chris Wright taking on the organisation and captaincy of the B Team. Duncan Greenslade will be in charge of the Cs while young Kai Wilkinson-Loines filled a void by volunteering to captain the Sunday side, assisted by Kannan Kuppusamy as Manager. The work of Chairman, Steve Phoenix, has been reduced by Chris McKay taking over as Fixture Secretary while Trish Ellse has agreed to manage the Ladies’ Team. All the other officers remain the same apart from Trish’s daughter Megan joining Lohit Kannan as Junior Representative and Stephen Leinster taking on the job of statistician.

At the A.G.M. discussion mainly centred around the future of the Sunday Team and the thorny question of fees. In the end it was decided that the club will continue to try to field 8 senior teams in 2020: 4 Saturday teams, a Sunday team in the Mid-Norfolk Sunday League, 2 midweek teams and a Ladies Team. Subscriptions were halved to £20 for all Senior Playing Members (£10 for students/unemployed) and match fees raised to £8 (£4 students/unemployed), with no longer an ‘Occasional Player’ Membership, the principle being that all players pay an affordable sub and that, through the season, those that play the most pay the most.

Treasurer, Leo DeSalis, showed that the club’s accounts were in a healthy position thanks to the club’s sponsors, the Fundraising Committee, Celia Phoenix who organises the 100 Club and Maxine Rushton who was successful in obtaining grants that enabled the club to purchase new sight screens, a portable electronic scoreboard and equipment for the bar. Maxine also outlined plans for the latest project - an extension and refurbishment of the pavilion to include ladies’ changing and extra toilet facilities, greater storage, solar panels on the roof and improvements to the clubroom.

The Chairman then presented an update on the Norfolk Cricket Board’s One-League Proposals for 2021 and the mandate from the club for the new league was a resounding ’Yes’

With Managers in place for all the Junior Teams, pre-season nets (for juniors and seniors) arranged at the UEA Sportspark from Monday 24th February to Monday 30th March and arrangements for the annual Beer Festival and an end-of-season tour in hand, everything is in place for the 2020 season. Melton are always on the lookout for new players so any cricketers moving into the Wymondham/Hethersett area or anyone looking for a change of club will be very welcome.

Officers elected were: President: Nick Evans-Lombe; Chairman: Steve Phoenix; Vice-Chairman: Mark Scott; Secretary: Richard Wood; Membership Secretary: Sallyann Weston; Treasurer: Leo DeSalis; Fixture Secretary: Chris McKay; Welfare Officer: Celia Phoenix; Bar/Pavilion Manager: Marcus Mawby; Head of Junior Coaching: Matt Rushton; Volunteer Coordinator: Chris Brook; Groundsman: Mike Phoenix; Statistician: Stephen Leinster; Captains - 1st Team: Richard Waddell; A Team: Simon Woods; B Team Eusha Fawad/Chris Wright; C Team: Duncan Greenslade; Sunday Team: Kai Wilkinson-Loines; Midweek 1st Team: Nick Mackenzie; Midweek A Team: Chris Mckay; Women’s Team Manager: Trish Ellse; Junior Representatives: Lohit Kannan & Megan Ellse.

Please note that the AGM starts at 7.30 p.m., not 7.00 p.m. as I mistakenly printed on the agenda. There will be a brief update on the latest one-league proposals but all the draft documents relating to this are now available on the website. Still no interest in the Sunday captaincy role! ...

An excellent win for the Zip League team tonight. The team: Sam Davey, Daniel Graves, George Woodcock, Adithya Velu, Sam McKay and Odin Thomas played some good shots and ran very well between the wickets to post a score of 188 against Great Ellingham. Considering a wicket fell in both the power play overs, meaning a deduction of 20 runs, this was a really good score. Several early wickets then put Ellingham on the back foot as Melton’s fielding matched their batting. Some good catches and direct hit run outs were a feature as Ellingham’s batsmen struggled for runs. The last pair showed some attacking intent but Melton’s bowlers maintained the upper hand to restrict Ellingham to 105. Melton won the match by 83 runs to go into the Christmas break with 2 wins out of 2. ... See MoreSee Less
