Brief report and pictures from the 2006 AGM
An attendance of sixteen Members heard various reports on the 2006 playing season.  There was a general air of disappointment with the final league placings.

Bob Berry explained that, after nine years as Chairman, he was standing down at this Meeting, believing that a person with fresh enthusiasm and ideas was required.

Peter Skinner was happy to report a reasonably healthy bank balance which was 362 up on that at the end of the previous financial year.

The highlight of the proceedings was the President's presentation to Bob Berry of a hard-bound book (inscribed in recognition of his service) containing newspaper extracts of international cricket matches stretching back to the early 1900s.  He also received a cheque subscribed to by Members. Bob then handed a badge of office to the newly-elected Chairman, Bob Adams.  This was a plaque on which a cricket ball and a miniature set of stumps had been mounted.  The ball was the very one that Vivien Richards had hit for 5 sixes in 1 over during a SCC Benefit Match against the Club in 1977.

All but one of the Team Captains were re-elected and Peter Snell agreed to take on the 2nd XI captaincy.
