Honorary Secretary’s Report, 2019

At the time of drafting this Report, there are still four weeks to go before this year’s AGM and I shall begin by recounting various activities and events that occurred during these past 12 months, but not necessarily in chronological order. Last autumn I reported that only 19 members attended the 2017 AGM. I am pleased to report this year that all of those same 19 members were in attendance again at the 2018 AGM and that they were joined by a further 24 members; 28 of the aggregation had played matches that year, so all the voting criteria was able to be met this time. With regard to changes to the General Committee, Phil Frenay stood down from the Second XI captaincy and was replaced by Ed Garrott. As forewarned, Cilla Robertson gave up two of her three roles and although she remained as Membership Secretary, Hannah Heslam took-on Colts Liaison whilst Chloe Robertson became Welfare Officer. The new role of Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League Representative was created as a separate position on our General Committee and Michael Robertson was elected as the first post-holder. (Previously Richard Robertson had been the Club’s liaison with the SHPCL but it was not an official “committee position”). Peter Tidey and Karl Ward both did not seek re-election to the General Committee although Karl remained Second XI Vice-Captain until partway through the season. Those vacancies on the Committee allowed Richard Johnson and Matt Giblin opportunities to be elected “Without Portfolio”. All other officials were re-elected in their existing roles. Remarkably, our Committee now contains four married couples on it – this must be a record! Outside the Committee positions, Jack Tidey did not wish to continue as [...]

Reed 1st XI make it to the play-offs.

Reed 1st XI ensured a home play-off place for promotion to the Saracens Herts Premier League with this emphatic win over Ampthill. Ampthill won the toss and elected to bat only to see Zac McGuigan strike in the first over. Soon Jack Tidey was in on the act, taking two cheap wickets, leaving Ampthill 30 for 3 after 10 overs. Ampthill revived with a partnership of 70 from Darlow and Lewin, but with the introduction of Tom Greaves (8-1-22-4) the innings soon subsided to 128 all out in the 33rd over. Reed's innings got off to an inauspicious start when the dangerous Ed Wharton was bowled first ball by Sneath. But a good partnership between McGuigan (70) and W. Heslam (28) put Reed in the driving seat. After two wickets fell cheaply, Stuart Smith (13 not out) supported McGuigan and Jack Caine to take Reed over the line. This result put Reed in an unassailable 2nd position with their final game against leaders Hoddesdon next weekend. However only a victory by a huge margin would see Reed overhaul their opponents to finish top of the league and guarantee promotion. Realistically Reed will meet either Luton Town & Indians or West Herts in the play-off game at Reed on Saturday September 14th, the day before they appear at Lord's for the Final of the National Village Cup. Match Report submitted by Richard Robertson.
