Vice Chairman’s Report:

1. The Vice Chairman reported that from a senior playing point of view the season had been good with the first team finishing mid table in the championship and many junior players getting chances within the first team.

The second team had a fantastic season and have been promoted to division three and reached the cup final. Vice Chairman thanked Jad Ambler for his efforts for the season and congratulated him on the season.

The Vice Chairman was happy with the third team’s progress and had hoped to have been promoted, however, due to playing games on Sunday’s opposition managed to get stronger teams out. The Vice Chairman is confident with another good winter and the junior players progressing well in the team that they will be able to mount a promotion push in 2020.

2. Juniors have had another great season and are all showing improvement throughout the season. This is the highest number of juniors we’ve ever had at Rockingham and seeing them al play and contributing is fantastic.

The Vice Chairman was happy to see that the girl’s team was going from strength to strength with more girls joining the club throughout the season. The Vice Chairman has congratulated at the players that have played representative cricket throughout the season. The Vice Chairman congratulated all our junior teams which have won league and cup titles in the 2019 season and also to the individual award winners for both club and league. The Vice Chairman has pointed out this is our most successful junior season ever and looks forward tp seeing the juniors progress in 2020.

3. The Vice Chairman wished to record the clubs gratitude to the Tea Ladies and ground staff for all their hard work throughout 2019.

4. The Vice Chairman thanked all Volunteers who had given their time to help run the club throughout 2019, around the whole club and for the help on the ground as without these helpers and people giving up their own time the club wouldn’t be what it is.

Treasurers Report:-
