Minutes of the last meeting and matters arising
These were agreed. A new bank account had been opened with the Nationwide. Signatories for the account are Barry Gigg, Will Walker and Paul Gaught. Phil Patten had been asked if he wished to remain a member of the committee. He had stated that he wished to stand down.
Chairman's Report
Considering the current economic climate and the problems other Cricket Clubs have had trying to survive, it has been uplifting that Superstars have continued to recruit new members and have remained a strong club with a good player base. It is in no small part to all the good work the committee and players themselves have done in supporting each other in running the club. I am also so pleased that we continue to make new players feel most welcome and give them every opportunity to contribute both on and off the field.
I would like to thank in particular Paul for the amount of work he has done for the club this year. Not only has he been vice-captain, fixture secretary and stats provider, he organised our end of season bash and has been the driving force behind the creation of the club official website. The website has been a great addition to the club and will provide a central information hub. The club wishes to thank Graham Neicho, Penny Allen and James Marshall for assisting Paul in producing this fantastic website. I encourage everyone at the club to help maintain the site by providing feedback and content.
Early in the season many of our players enjoyed a very well organised tour around Bedford. Will, Poppy and Ian helped make the trip such a success, so I wish to thank them very much. Congratulations also to Will and Poppy on the birth of their son Henry.
Thanks to our Captain and Treasurer Barry and Secretary Mike who continue to do so much behind the scenes to make the club runs efficiently. Mike will be leaving the civil service at the end of the coming season but let's hope he will continue coming on tour and keep in touch with his friends.
Congratulations to the Superstars six on winning the sports day 6 a side tournament and to the full team in bringing home the 'Ken Block Memorial Trophy' on our series win over Dodgers. Congratulation also to the winners at our award's night: Player of the Year - Sandeep, Batsman of the Year - Will, Bowler of the Year - Sandeep, Player of the Tour - Robert Fox.
I look forward to the coming season and our continued success.
Treasurer's Report
The accounts had been audited. The Treasurer went through the details of income and expenditure and the forthcoming SPARTA bid. King's House school had already invoiced the club for 25% of pitch fees and payment would be made in due course. The accounts and bid were unanimously approved by Members unchanged.
Election of Officers
No nominations had been received. However, Mike Taylor was standing down as Secretary (due to a move away from London), to be replaced by Jason Marchant (proposed by Mike Taylor, seconded by Paul Gaught). Mike Taylor would automatically return to being a committee member. It was decided to elect one new committee member. This was Adam Spencer (nominated by Paul Gaught, seconded by Ian Moxon). These appointments were agreed unanimously. Elected officers are as follows:-
ChairmanSteve Meyler
SecretaryJason Marchant
TreasurerBarry Gigg
Fixture SecretaryPaul Gaught
Committee MembersMike Taylor, Chris Mountain, Mark Williams, Paul Gaught, Will Walker, Matt Conway, Michael Duggan, Ian Moxon, Adam Spencer.

Arrangements for 2012 Season
The committee wished to remind players that they should notify organisers of their availability for matches as soon as possible. Players may wish to make a particular effort to attend afternoon fixtures where having a full XI is particularly beneficial.
The annual poster promotion in tea points would be arranged in an attempt to recruit new players. It was also agreed that the club would look into trying to recruit players by way of appropriate internet/web links. Nets had been arranged at the Oval for pre-season practice, starting on 6 March.
Chris Plume and Paul Gaught had taken steps to arrange a tour to the Winchester area for the early May Bank Holiday. The Committee was grateful for their work in doing so. Further volunteers to help progress these arrangements would be approached in the near future. The tour is a long-standing club tradition and players are encouraged to come along to what has always proved a very enjoyable weekend.
Any Other Business
There was a discussion about qualification for the end of season batting and bowling awards. It was agreed that, in the interest of parity, qualification should be based on 125 runs and 8 wickets with a minimum of 5 games played. The paper on it can be found here.
There was some debate about how partnerships should be calculated, in the light of the recent practice in 20x20 matches that batsmen should retire at 25. It was agreed that this should be based on partnerships between two players, given that the original intention of recording such information was to highlight their dual efforts (with the single exception of where a partner retires hurt). A system which records achievements of multiple partnerships on the basis of retirements is very different (given that it could potentially be made up of the efforts of the whole team). However, it was agreed that the latter could be recorded separately if desired. In both cases it is important that the scorer records information accurately. Should the laws of the game change to reflect multiple partnerships as a single partnership then this matter could be revisited.
Various roles had been agreed with committee members. These were- Fixtures & Ground - Paul Gaught, Social arrangements - Will Walker, Statistics - Adam Spencer, Team selection/organisation - Chris Mountain
The club would once again aim to put forward teams for the SPARTA and 4DAs sports days and to support SPARTA at other events where possible. The club wished to thank the darts club for allowing them to use their club for the AGM.
There being no other business the meeting closed at 6.45.
Mike Taylor, Secretary.
