2019 AGM

The Minety RFC Annual General Meeting was held last night (11th June) in the club house at Minety.

In front of a good turnout, and considerably more than the quorum in the club’s Articles of Association, the chairman opened the meeting, thanked those in attendance and gave the first of a series of reports from 2018-2019 Committee members and the team captains. The chairman’s address can be located below this report, for those interested.

After the receipt of reports from the chair, the club captain (Tom Claxton), the 2nd XV captain (Steve Wilson), the club coach (Andy Grayson), the treasurer (given by Peter McAllister in Kevin Holdway’s absence) and the junior report (Peter McAllister), the following were elected onto the Committee to serve from June 2019 to June 2020.

Outgoing Chairman’s address

First of all, in line with many recent announcements, I do not intend to burst into tears at the end of my address and, no, I have never taken c*****e nor snorted anything stronger than snuff.

As some of you know, I took over from Ken Wright late on in the year and I would like to extend my thanks to Ken for all the work that he did during his time as Club Chairman and for the significant role and support he has played in the life of the club over many years.

It has certainly been a challenging year both on and off the field.
