Life Membership for Andrew Emms

Andrew Emms was made a Life Member of Reed Cricket Club during the Sixty-second Annual General Meeting last Thursday. Andrew has worked on a variety of projects at the Club in his time as it has grown from rural village side to one of the finest clubs in Hertfordshire. He continues to volunteer and carry-out many of the manual labouring jobs that need doing as well as organising annual charity luncheons that have raised money for many worthy causes. In his early days he was particularly involved in setting-up the Colts’ structure from which the Club has benefitted with a constant supply of young players coming through to the senior teams. After many years as Committee member and Club Chairman, Andrew remains the figurehead of the Club as its President since 2012. He is a generous socialiser and a very loyal member of the Club and deserves this recognition. He now joins a very select band of Life Members comprising Clive Collins, Rosemary Collins, Keith Collins and Roger Bowcock. Peter G. Baker. Honorary Secretary, Reed CC 2nd December 2018.
