Yes it is the middle of football season but cricket season is rapidly approaching, with the league (GDCA) Annual General Meeting in July.
In the off season Sunbury Cricket Club has been very busy and have elected a new committee which has a major focus of rebuilding the cricket club.
The new committee is:
President: Scott Yardley
Secretary: David Thomas
Treasurer: Jim Pearson
Senior Vice President: Dominic Douglas
Junior Vice President: Adam Kirk
Committee Member: Brent McDougall
Committee Member: Patrick Tyler
One of the main objectives of the committee is for the club to be more inclusive to our juniors and the families of players (both senior and junior). To this end the committee includes past or present junior coaches Dom Douglas and I as well as Paddy Tyler, who plans to coach juniors this season. In addition Terry Landt has kindly agreed to attend committee meetings and act as a conduit between junior players/ parents and the committee and to assist with organisation of family friendly activities throughout the season.
The committee recognises that it is through the juniors that the ongoing viability and strength of the club is maintained.
As always we welcome any parent or friend of junior players to take an active part in the club and would appreciate anyone volunteering to assist in a coaching or administration role as the season gets closer. You do not have to have any experience as we will guide you and assist wherever possible.
Also we are actively seeking sponsorship for the club so if you have a business (or your employer might be interested) we are offering sponsorship packages which include advertising space on our website, letter heads and club shirts as well as many minor sponsorship arrangements. Sponsorship assists in keeping registration fees to a minimum so if you can help please do.
The club has a new web site at www.sunburycc.wordpress.com and future notices will be published there. While the site is still in development, I recommend you take a tour of the web site and see where the club is headed. I hope that you will all be back next season to be a part of it.
If you have any queries, wish to volunteer or would like to discuss sponsorship, please give me a call on 9740 5975 or 0402 292 371.
