Club promises assistance

The wider club were suitably chastened yesterday evening at the AGM when, having mentioned us in glowing terms on several occasions, the lack of any male players' sisters or daughters in the girls' teams was raised, along with the lack-of-coach problem.

Various promises were made to do something about both - and not just by the junior section this time, but by the committee of the whole club.

Having raised it now at the highest level, and having had these promises recorded in the club's official minutes, I think we can be as confident as we can hope to be that something will be done.

When it comes to attracting players Mike and Heather are working on some promotional material which will be targeted specifically at the female relatives of club members, and Dave Sharp has also asked for a couple of team pictures to go up in the newly redecorated clubhouse (once the painters have left). Mike and Phil are looking for something appropriate, and I expect one picture at least will be the group picture from Beckenham.

However, I think it would be good to have a exciting action shot on display as well. Do any of you have any personal favourite pictures that you think would be really effective in attracting new players to "give it a go"?

As for coaches, there a few "leads" that are being tried and some people have shown an interest (certainly I have not been told to "go away" by anyone yet). No-one has promised anything though, but its early days yet...
