Apologies: B. Garvey

  • Minutes: The minutes of the 1995 meeting were accepted.
  • Matters Arising: Since the last meeting the secretary, D. Parker, had resigned. N. Metcalfe had taken over at the start of the playing season. S. Fullerton had been officially appointed captain.
  • Election of Officers: C. Bridge accepted the post of Vice-Captain for the 1996 season. The treasurer, J. White, expressed a desire to step down at the end of the season if a replacement could be found. It was also noted that a new Hon. Vice President would be needed next season.
  • Chairman’s Report: The chairman expressed his approval at the number of younger faces in the club, and hoped this would bode well for the future.
  • Captain’s Report: (Unfortunately the Captain failed to provide a written version of his report before he left Durham ! – Sec.)
  • Secretary’s Report: The secretary presented the fixture list for the 1996 season, including the arrangements for nets. These was some discussion as to whether the Mayor’s XI fixture should be moved to a Sunday. A new fixture, against the “Adders”, loosely connected with Newcastle University, had been arranged on both a home and away basis.
  • Any other business: Publicity – it was agreed that a WWW web page should be set up to publicise the club, hopefully with a link from the university home page. An advert in Headlines asking for new players was also deemed desireable. Kit – the status of some of the kit, especially the bats, was giving cause for concern. Wicket Keeper – a new regular wicket keeper would be needed this season. Members were asked to be alert!
