On behalf of Alfreton Cricket Club, welcome to the 2014
Season. What an exciting year we have in prospect. After only a two year wait
we have returned to the Derbyshire Premier League. The League remains one of
the strongest Premier divisions in the country, so we can look forward to
seeing some highly competitive and quality Cricket this year. Please join me in
wishing Alex and his team the best of luck.
I am truly overwhelmed with what the Club has achieved
with its new facilities; it has been the culmination of four years’ work from a
dedicated project team led by Steve Delamore, including Matt Spencer, Keith
Clark and Tom Rooke. These new facilities will secure the Clubs future, and be
a major contribution to our sustainability, as a top level Cricket Club, but
also through greatly enhanced links with the local Community, and non- sport
organisations in the area, who have already expressed great interest in the
Community room element of the development.
We have a new young team of people who are running all
elements of Cricket at the Club, I wish them well for the future, and thank
them on behalf of the Committee for taking this upon themselves.
As ever we remain a Club with a strong Junior Section as
demonstrated by our outstanding success last year, I am therefore delighted that John Aspinall, an extremely competent player and coach will
be taking over the management and organisation of our Junior Cricket this year.
The Club are both fortunate and grateful to John for this, and we all wish him
well on his endeavours.
In closing can I thank Impact Marketing and Alfreton Town
Council for their continued support, without which the Club would not be where
