From the Board
Not long now to the sound of leather on willow!!!The latest lock down unfortunately halted a number of early season activities however now we are back into level 2, we are back underway getting ready for the season ahead.
Therefore, Ed and Eden have been busy preparing everything for the season ahead with competition formats and entries confirmed, numerous school visits undertaken, Girls Muster Day completed, the Technical Cricket Committee underway and The Academy has started, the list goes on.
Work has commenced by the Marlborough District Council on strengthening the Horton Park Pavilion to ensure the pavilion is no longer earthquake-prone and to complete the necessary seismic work. During this time Ed and Eden are working from home, however can still be contacted via email or phone.
At the recent Association’s AGM it was great to acknowledge the excellent service Alistair Sowman and Denis Aberhart have given Marlborough Cricket by bestowing them Life Memberships. Congratulations to you both and thanks again for all you have and continue to do for Marlborough Cricket.
Also, at the AGM presentations were made to Marcus Pickens and Tim Rose to thank them for their contributions to the MCA Board. Both retired by rotation and their presence on the Board will be missed.
I urge all players, coach/managers and supporters to follow all the relevant Covid 19 Protocols set out by New Zealand Cricket when you commence training and playing.. If you are not sure what they are please ask your Club Committee they have all the necessary information.
With the season starting properly shortly, on behalf of the Board, I would like to wish you all a very successful and enjoyable season.
