The 2019 cricket season is nearly upon us and following Friday’s AGM, we thought it would be a good time to provide an update on the latest happenings within the club.
Annual General Meeting – Friday 22nd March
The AGM was held last Friday at the Four Elms Inn and was attended by approximately 20 members. Some of the key points have been highlighted below, including a list of all Officers appointed during the AGM:
This was the most successful Sunday side Four Elms has produced for many many years.
