Leggers new club President, Dicko new 1st team Supremo, Chairman Verno stands down
A busy AGM resulted in a few changes at the top of Chester Boughton Hall Cricket Club with Roger Cash having served his 3 year tenure as club President being replaced by club Secretary John Legry. Stephen (Seamus) Ogilby, having completed a wonderful treble of League, Cheshire cup and Liverpool Echo Trophy, stands down as 1st xi Captain, to be replaced by club coach Lee Dixon. Chairman Graham Vernon has also decided to stand down following 2 years of club success both on and off the pitch. The new Chairman will be elected at next week’s management meeting. Chairman of Directors Jeremy Jordan outlined the precarious financial position of the club when we are always looking to improve our facilities and equipment for the benefit of the members and players throughout the club. He reiterated the fact that although we have raised money for various projects including new nets and drainage on the main square, he warned that the club had to increase subscriptions for the first time in over 10 years.
The meeting elected Lee Dixon to succeed Stephen Ogilby as 1st xi Captain with his county colleague Warren Goodwin continuing as his Vice Captain. Dan Riley and Bobby Evans continue their successful start as 2nd xi Captain and Vice-Captain while Dave Fisher takes over the 3rd xi reigns from Peta Balac with Ian Thistlewood stepping up as Vice-Captain. The status quo continues in 4th xi with Phill Evans and Alan Axon in control. Chris Fleet continues as club captain and Over 40s Tsar while Nic Capes will try to repeat the success of a wonderful treble as ladies Captain.
The Management Committee remained virtually unchanged while the following were elected Vice Presidents: - A. Axon, Dr. A Dunbavand, D. Maddocks, D. Totti, J. Townend, P. Wilgoss, A. Wyatt.
Subscriptions for next season will be:
Playing members £90 (£110 if not paid by 1 June) University £50 Ladies Adult £50 High School £50 Junior school year 3-6 £40 Junior school year 1-2 £5 Vice Presidents £40 Social Member £20
Match fees will be £5 for all senior games while juniors will pay £2 match fee.
Trek 4 Tom
In a nutshell below is the reason we are doing this. We all played football with Tom for Dee Rangers and it is a charity that is very close to our hearts. Its important that we help fight the battle and also keep Tom's memory alive so that his death wasn't in vain. So much has been done however there is so much more to do. We have been fundraising since Tom's death, and there has been such a fantastic response to the fundraising, there has been a Calender 'Totty for Tom', Movember 'Tashes for Tom', recently a ball 'Together for Tom', we are just about to do 'Trek for Tom' and there is another 'Totty for Tom' calendar for 2014!! We are having a fundraising night this Friday 25th at Boughton Hall Cricket Club, £10 pay on the door which includes live music, food and DJ as well as an auction and raffle.
In June 2011, Tom was a healthy, fit, fun-loving 26 year old. He played football, cricket and loved life. He was the person everyone wanted at the party. He was sensitive to other people's needs, generous and kind. Most people will remember him for his wicked sense of humour! He was extremely bright and was starting on his career as a lawyer. By July 2011, Tom was suffering increasingly from heartburn and indigestion. After many visits to various doctors and losing weight, he was sent for an endoscopy. The result of that and the scan a few days later was shattering. Tom had Oesophageal Cancer. It was Stage 4 and inoperable. Within 3 weeks Tom was in Clatterbridge receiving chemotherapy. Typical of Tom he fought very bravely. He very rarely complained, but longed for his old life back, frightened of the future sometimes and desperate to be well again. For a while we thought we had the cancer under control.
In May 2012 we were all on holiday in Greece when Tom's discomfort began to grow. He was admitted to Clatterbridge where they did all they could, but the cancer had spiralled out of control.
Tom died at home on the 13th of June 2012 surrounded by his friends and family. He was 27 years old. Oesophageal Cancer is an insidious disease. Often, by the time the symptoms manifest themselves it is too late, the disease has already gone too far. It is thought to be linked to obesity, people over 60, heavy drinkers and smokers. Tom was none of these. He was one of a growing number of young men to contract this cancer. At the moment there are no answers as to why Tom developed this cancer and why it is increasing. It is vital that research will shed some light onto why Tom and other young people are victims of Oesophageal Cancer. Raising awareness early is vital, as is early detection, as well as the vital WHY? There is fund at Clatterbridge, ring-fenced for research into Oesophageal Cancer. It costs about £25,000 to fund a research programme.
So far there is about £18,000 and that is increasing slowly. Every £1 gift aided is worth£1.25 that is an enormous amount when it comes to real giving.
We hope you will all support our brave climbers, so that the evil mountain of this cancer can be conquered.
