The following is issued from the Chairman and is the base proposal that will be presented for debate, amendment and a vote on acceptance or otherwise at the Club’s EGM on Wednesday 4th December.
To meet with its growing business requirements it is proposed that Wellington Cricket Club introduces a higher tier of management that will deliver the future direction of the Club and will consist of an appropriate number of operationally and financially based personnel.
Subcommittees will deliver day to day management of specific Club business topics through a devolved mechanism and will be chaired by an appropriate person who will be accountable to the higher tier of management; some may sit on the higher tier of management in addition to their subcommittee role.
General Committee will meet on a bi-monthly basis.
Wellington secured at least joint runners up spot in Division A of the Somerset Cricket Board’s Indoor League with this nail biting ten run win over North Petherton last weekend when Neil Hendy was in fine all round form for the Red and Blacks.
Wellington batted first and found the going tough as Knight was on a hat-trick at 18-2, but Paul Short – opening the batting for the first time this season – made a battling 24 and with Hendy got Wellington to 70-3 at the time he was out.
Hendy made a brilliant 35 with three sixes and with Arron Campbell and Ian Hewson added 23 vital late runs to take Wellington to 93 all out in 12 overs.
For North Petherton – winners of the Somerset League this year – there were several solid contributions, but not the haste needed to score at eight an over at all times and that they lost only four wickets to Wellington’s six will be of some disappointment to them.
O.Irish with 23, Gibbs with 19 and Williams with 21no all got going, but the control of Luke Desave with 1-11 in his three overs and Neil Hendy’s 2-22 in three overs too saw Wellington take the game and with it a third win in four games.
Bridgwater will secure the title for the second winter season if they beat Minehead on Sunday 8th December and Wellington will be at least runners up in their own right if they beat Wembdon on the same date in a game that starts at 6.20pm.
