04 Feb 2018 : Club Person of the Year - Vote now!

Hi everyone,

The Lee Cricket Club's AGM is rapidly approaching  (Monday 19th February, 8pm at the clubhouse (note it is not 13th Feb as mentioned in the Lee newsletter - we changed the date to avoid half term).

One of the things we do at the AGM is award the 'Club Person of the Year award for last season. This award is for off the pitch contribution to the running of the club. The nominees for the 2017 award are

Michelle Yeabsley - Michelle has been our Honorary Treasurer for a number of years, and does a massive amount of work behind the scenes to ensure that our finances are in order.This includes paying all the bills, preparing all the floats and banking all the cash, as well as drawing up the annual accounts. Michelle will be handing over this role shortly, but has volunteered to organise a smooth transition and to continue to assist with the preparation of the annual accounts.

Josh Porter - Josh has worked his way through the colts system at the club, and last season took on the task of running the Friday night kwik-cricket training sessions, which continue to be as popular as ever. Josh has ensured that we have the correct level of coaches and assistants for each age group, and has stepped in whenever necessary to coach and manage the sessions.  

York Woodford-Smith - in addition to captaining our Sunday XI (who had a record breaking season), York has managed our club website, set up the new mechanism for paying membership fees online, and secured much needed advertising revenue through our fixture booklet and website. He has tirelessly chased down the annual subs due to ensure our income is flowing. 

Rachel Harris - Apart from managing the Under 10s and being a key member of our new Ladies team, Rachel is our clubhouse and bar manager, and spends a lot of time in and around the club ensuring that the bar is stocked, the cleaning is being done and that everything is in order. She also manages the bar and barbecue rotas for Friday nights, and frequently steps in herself to run the bar. 

You can either vote at the AGM in person, or email me with your selection. 

 

Many thanks

Patrick

24 Jan 2018 : 2018 AGM - Monday 19th February 8pm at the Clubhouse

Hi everyone,

The 2018 Annual General Meeting of the club will take place on Monday 19th February, 8pm at the club house (note that this is a week later than previously announced to avoid a clash with half term).

The AGM is open to all club members, and is your opportunity to hear what is going on at the club, and have a say in our plans for the coming season.

There are a number of committee positions becoming available, and we would welcome nominations for the following positions:

Honorary Treasurer - Michelle Yeabsley has continued to fill this role during a long search for a successor. We have simplified the role by making much more of the processing electronic, so this role would really suit someone who is good with spreadsheets. Michelle will train up her successor, and will assist with the preparation of the annual accounts.

Head of Colts - Martin Price has been doing this job for quite a few years now, and we need one of the parents of existing colts to step into this role - the key responsibilities are ensuring that the colts training and fixtures are organised and staffed. 

Child Welfare Officer - This person needs to make sure our club policies are up to date with the latest ECB guidelines, and that our coaches, captains and umpires have the necessary checks

1st XI Captain - Jake Hutt has stepped down from this key role after several seasons in charge (well done Jake!) so we need a new person to select the team and manage the on-field affairs. The recently revised MCC laws of cricket now place even greater emphasis on the captains to maintain the discipline of their teams, so this is a key role. 

Please let me know if you are interested in any of these roles, or would like to nominate someone. 

Also feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the club, or suggestions for the AGM.

Best regards

12 Jul 2017 : Lee Flower Show and Twenty-20 game

Hi everyone,

The Lee Flower Show is taking place this Saturda Julyy 15th, and the marquee will be erected tomorrow, so there is no cricket at the ground this weekend...

However, this Friday 14th we are playing a Twenty-20 game against our good friends the Little Missenden Misfits, at their ground, starting at 6pm. There will be a bar and barbecue, and we will have some of our kwik-cricket gear for the kids to play whilst the game is progressing. There is plenty of parking space, so please come along and support the teams.

The Misfits ground is on a sharp right hand corner on the road leading out of Little Missenden towards Holmer Green..

Hope to see you there

Patrick


09 Jun 2017 : Starting at 1pm - Meet 12.30

Hello all,

Just wanted to touch base to say I got the start time wrong on Sunday. It's a 1 pm start so if we could all meet at 12.30 that would be great. Do let me know ASAP if that's going to be an issue for you.

Cheers

York


21 May 2017 : Vice-President John Glanfield

Dear The Lee Cricket Club Members

It is with great sadness that I am writing to you today.

Overnight Friday/Saturday our long standing vice-president, supporter and friend, John Glanfield passed away in St Francis Hospice in Berkhamstead.

John will be greatly missed by all in the local community and The Lee Cricket Club. Today (Sunday) we are holding a small, respectful tribute to him before the friendly at home against Old Berkeley (based in Aylesbury Marsh). We have asked Jon Swain (longstanding resident and friend of John) to say a few words before we hold a minutes silence and then minutes applause. All players (including Old Berkeley) will be wearing black armbands out of respect for the entirety of the game.

If anyone who knew him wishes to join us for this tribute please feel free to join us. This tribute will be made at 14:00 right at the start of the game so if you wish to join us then we would be happy to see you from 13:45 onwards.

As a club we have asked for Jon Swain to also write a few words about John and his connection with our club, Jon has requested some time to do this so this will follow in a separate email in the coming days.

With great sadness

The Lee Cricket Club Committee
