Matters arising
There were no matters arising.
Chairman's Report
Chairman, Will Walker, was unable to attend. In his absence Paul Gaught gave the Chairman's report. He reported that Superstars had once again had a winning season, with some players reaching notable milestones. These milestones would be recognised at the end of season celebrations which would take place in the New Year. He thanked everyone for their hard work on keeping the club buoyant and maintaining a friendly but challenging fixture line up. Particular thanks went out to Izzy for her awesome cakes and to Steve Meyler just for his entertainment value. He was pleased to see that the club held a legends game against Dodgers with many ex members turning up, including Phil Patten and Yogesh Patel. He noted that Phil Patten's bowling was once again spot on, it was as if he hadn't been away. He wished Gary P all the best in getting over his illness (those present heartily agreed). He hoped that many of the club members would be present at the nets sessions whose dates would be released in the very near future.
Treasurer's Report
The accounts had been audited. The Treasurer went through the details of income and expenditure and the forthcoming SPARTA bid. All players were reminded that if they were in DfT or DCLG then they should join Sparta at a cost of £2 a month. It was noted that the income was not as high as expected due to 12 cancelled matches during the season. The accounts and bid were approved by Members.

Arrangements for 2017 Season
There was concern that the Abbey Recreation ground staff were not turning up on time to open the facilities. This had caused some problems such as stumps not being available. Some club members were having to bring excess club kit to the venue for each match. It was suggested that some kit could be left in the lockers at Abbey Rec. Action: Paul Gaught to email Abbey Rec to see if this was possible and to check the number of credits from cancelled games last season.
Action: Paul Gaught to email Abbey Rec to see if this was possible and to check the number of credits from cancelled games last season.
Although there were problems with hosting matches at Abbey Rec it was agreed to keep this as our home ground but also to investigate the chance of tagging on a couple of games at Chiswick throughout the season with one of the clubs using that ground, such as Dodgers.
Those present thanked Paul Gaught for his work on the excellent Superstars website.[Ed - considered putting this in bold font size 200]
Arrangements for the tour had not started but Ian Moxon had suggested (via email) another tour to Cambridgeshire. It was suggested that Ian should liaise with George to see if this was possible. It was also suggested that the tour should if possible have two different fixtures with two fixtures the same as last time. Jesus College was suggested as one of the fixtures to keep. It was suggested that the 2018 tour could be to Wales. The Committee was grateful for the ongoing work into arranging the tour. The tour is a long-standing club tradition and players are encouraged to come along to what has always proved a very enjoyable weekend.
Action: Ian Moxon to liaise with George regarding holding the tour in Cambridgeshire again. Steve Meyler to investigate the possibility of holding the 2018 tour in Wales.
Due to the early date for the AGM no fixtures for next season had been arranged as yet.
Those present thanked Paul Gaught for his work on the excellent Superstars website. (sic)
Any Other Business
Recruitment posters needed to be added to Intranet sites and a proactive approach at HR induction days were suggested as ways of recruiting more players. Posters needed to highlight the nets when they were put up in the near future in Departments.
Action: Jason Marchant to email a copy of the poster to Dan Forman.
Jamie Ratcliff announced by email that a new academy player had arrived, Michael Edward Ratcliff, and that he had attended his first match this year. Everyone sent their congratulations.
Adam Spencer expressed his disappointment at the standard of scoring in the club scorebook. He said that this was making it difficult to produce accurate stats. He asked that everyone developed their skills as a scorer for the next season. PG suggested adding a link to a scoring tuition website on the Superstars website.
Action: Paul Gaught to add link to a scoring website on the Superstars website. Adam Spencer agreed to write some basic instructions for scorers to follow.
Dan Forman asked if new shirts and caps could be purchased this season. Barry Gigg agreed to take this on. Mike Kamellard suggested a supplier to BG. BG asked that he be supplied with a copy of the club shirt and cap badge.
Action: Paul along with Barry and Jason agreed to review the e mail list to ensure that it was up to date and wasnít missing anyone.
Action: Barry Gigg to make arrangements for new club shirts and caps to be purchased. Caps that donít itch please.
The club end of season social was to be arranged for the New Year (end of January). The Jugged Hare was suggested as the location.
Action: Paul Gaught to email the Jugged Hare to investigate the booking possibilities and email "core" players to narrow down on a date.
There being no other business the meeting closed at 6.58pm. (5 minutes earlier than last year!)
Jason Marchant, Secretary.
