2014 AGM

The Annual General Meeting was held on the 27th January 2013 at Abingdon United Football Club.

This year 19 teams and 35 players attended and the meeting got underway at 8pm sharp under the new Chairman Mr James Barguss. After the standard business of apologies (Mr B.Lacey), last years meeting minutes etc and the team register the Chairman gave his report which included a live demonstration of the new website and score system.

The balance sheet was accepted as a true record. It was noted that the introduction of the plaques had reduced the trophy bill by some £1000 however the new website cost £500 and sponsorship from Brakspear remains unforthcoming. The reports were adopted.

There were no formal proposals this year but in AOB Mr Graham Barguss proposed, due to the number of players succumbing to cancer and more recently the sad loss of Mrs Jean Brown our Secretary’s wife. a charity shield ‘pro-am’ pairs competition in aid of cancer charities to take place in the summer. 

With no further business the committee were elected enblock for another year.

The Meeting closed at 8:30pm.

Brian Collins, The Stickmaker was available with dolls, sticks and equipment to purchase. Now available are practice dolls complete with swivel attachment for £37.
