The Cricket Wales Board at their last meeting before the AGM
CRICKET WALES AGM
The Cricket Wales AGM was completed
successfully on Sunday 27th of September at the Elan Valley
The meeting was preceded by
meetings of both the Senior and the Junior Cricket Councils and also a joint
meeting of the two Councils. The minutes of the Joint Meeting and
of the Senior Council and Junior Council meetings are available as downloads from this site.
The Joint Meeting was largely concerned with
discussions in respect of the current review of the governance of Cricket
Wales. The current Board is awaiting the
fruits of previous discussions and, following the dissemination of more
proposed detail, is expected to complete discussions before the changes are
brought before the wider membership at a later stage.
The AGM saw the ratification of two
new Board Members as Clive Franklin and Ted Tipper had decided to stand down after
both being involved for four years (one year during the interim period and
three as elected members). Rod Jones,
Chairman of the Welsh Club Cricket Conference, and Peter Brett, former Chairman
of the Carmarthenshire RJCDC, have been elected to join the Board and their
elections were duly ratified.
