Opening Statement
The club was very sad to hear the news of the passing of Kim Matthews the much liked wicket keeper for our opponents the Dodgers along with his partner Jude. The meeting agreed that any memorial suggested by the Dodgers in memory of Kim prior to our match series against them in the coming season would be given very sympathetic consideration.
Minutes of the last meeting
A slight mistake was pointed out. Phil Patten had stood down as a Committee Member and so should not have been listed in the section of Elected Officers. The minutes were agreed with this minor amendment.
Matters arising
The query relating to partnership records had been clarified following an approach to BBC's Test match Special scorer, Malcolm Ashton. Partnership scores only counted from the fall of the last wicket till the fall of the next wicket despite the number of retirements by batsmen.

Chairman's Report
Due to family commitments the Chairman was unable to attend and so a short note from the Chairman thanking all those involved in running and playing for the club in 2012 was read out by Paul G. The Chairman had emailed the members of the club prior to the meeting to tender his resignation as Chairman, his reasoning being that he was unable to commit sufficient time to the role to do it justice over the coming year. Unfortunately he had been unable to give the required two weeks notice. The meeting agreed that a new chairman would be voted in but would serve as Chairman Elect until a two week period had passed from informing the clubs members of his election then he would automatically become the club Chairman.
Treasurer's Report
The accounts had been audited. The Treasurer went through the details of income and expenditure and the proposed SPARTA bid. It was noted King's House school needed full payment for the pitches for the season by 9 April. They had also put the price of pitch hire up from 90 pounds per game to 132 pounds per game which was a significant increase. It was pointed out that due to the number of cancelled matches in 2012 the amount of income from match subs was much lower in 2012. Due to this same reason the amount of new kit required for the new season was down from previous seasons. An audit of the current club kit would be required before the new season. The web server space for the club website needed to be paid for and had not been included in the bid. 150 pounds was therefore added to the bid to pay for the continuation of the very popular and well presented website. The treasurer reminded the meeting of the important role SPARTA play in the continued success of the club. He asked that SPARTA membership details be published on the club website. The accounts were unanimously approved by Members and likewise the bid with the amount for web space maintenance added to bring the bid figure to 1,188.77 pounds
Election of Officers
No nominations had been received. However, Steve Meyler was standing down as Chairman but would revert to being a committee member (explained previously), Chris Mountain offered his services as a replacement (proposed by Matt Conway, seconded by Ian Moxon).

Arrangements for 2013 Season
Four games have been arranged for the 2013 Tour to Hampshire. Our opponents will be Tichborne Pk, Plums, East Meon and Hambledon. Barry G is currently investigating hotel options that stocked sambuca. Further details are available here
'Regular Season' fixtures
11 home fixtures have been booked at Chiswick and 2 at Imber Court. Ground costs are rising, especially at Chiswick, so the club may have to consider a move elsewhere. A group led by Neil Le Milliere from HMT&CO is trying to negotiate a deal with CSSC and Kings House School. Paul G will keep the club informed of any developments with this matter. Merv's Tournament is due to take place on Saturday 13 July, two games have been agreed against Dodgers on Thursday 23 May and Wednesday 10 July and Sports Day will take place on Friday 19 July. No fixtures were being planned against Feltham Garrison or MoJ. The current fixture list can be found here
It was suggested that the fixtures secretary looked into resurrecting the fixture against CENTYMCA which had previously been held at Eltham College. There was a belief that this club now only played at weekends but an approach would be made to see if CENTYMCA were available during the week. The club would once again aim to put forward teams for the SPARTA and 6DAs sports days and to support SPARTA at other events where possible.
Any Other Business
The club wished to thank Steve Meyler for arranging the opening of the darts bar for use for the club AGM.
There being no other business the meeting closed at 6.45pm.
Jason Marchant, Secretary.
