Subscriptions - There has been a rise in both season subscription and match day subscriptions, both which were unanimously agreed at the AGM. Annual subscriptions will rise to £70, reduced to £60 if paid prior to the 30th April. Anyone who hasn’t paid annual subscriptions prior to 31st May will not be eligible for selection for any team, this is non-negotiabale.
For those in full time education or those who are unemployed and play senior cricket, their annual subscription will be at the lower rate of £15.
For junior members who don’t yet play senior cricket, their annual subscription will be £30, which includes coaching during the summer months on Thursday evenings.
Match day fees for a Saturday will be £10 and reduced to £7 for those in full time education or those who are unemployed. This is due to increased fees for umpires and a an increase in the money paid to scorers henceforth. For Sunday games this will be £7.50 and £4.50 due to teas being provided not being a requirement in the HLSCL.
All cup ties will require players to pay £1.50 to cover the cost of providing a scorer.
Thanks again to those who attended the meeting and thanks to all of those who have taken roles within the club for the next 12 months.
