ANNUAL REPORT AND ACCOUNTS 1988

PRESIDENT'S REPORT



This season proved to be very encouraging for the Club with notable success, both on and off the field. Bob Asprey led the Club to its second league success in four years, meaning the Club will be fighting the 1989 campaign in Division One of the South Northants League.

It was nice to see regular coverage of the teams' matches in the local press, although it is rather disappointing to the Club that, despite a firm policy to select village members for the team, no new senior players approached the Club, despite the ever increasing population of the Parish.

However, this was compensated for by the arrival of several new junior members. Mike (D.H.) Durose was an ever-present in the side, while both Justin Gill and Hugh Brassey made their debuts in the league side. This, together with the arrival of Aled Roberts to the side, ensured the foreseeable future is bright.

Other players continuing to improve as a result of the youth policy in the side, included Dom Evans, Matthew Alger and Joe Adhemar, all of whom made several appearances in the league side. In addition, with Scot Bayliss, Julian Hunt, Zak Gardner and Peter Fields making regular appearances in the friendly side, the Club only needs a little more maturity in the middle order to become one of the strongest village sides in the league.
