Top coach and former professional player Andy Stovold was invited to Bredon Cricket Club’s committee meeting this week.
He gave some fascinating insights into the future development of the grassroot game, and the challenges Bredon must meet if we are develop and thrive.
Andy made a considerable impact when he started working with junior members of the club mid-way through the season.
Some of his advice may influence thinking at the club’s annual meeting (AGM) in the clubhouse on Thursday, November 16.
It starts at 7.30pm and entails the election of the committee. All club members are invited, and they will be asked for their thoughts on the future direction of the club.
There will also be a chance to hear about progress made on and off the field during 2017.
All members, social and playing, are welcome.
Meanwhile, there was a players’ meeting at the club on Sunday, October 8.
Issues discussed included the future development of the club, league positions, retention of the Third XI team, commitment of players throughout the season, appointment of coaches, a recruitment drive for new players, chairman of selectors, teams and captains for next season, and jobs for the winter.
