Suspension of Nominations for Selectors

The current General Committee at its monthly meeting on Tuesday 12 April 2016, decided that the current arrangement for the election of Selectors by the Membership of the Club be suspended forthwith based on the Coaches Report. Expressions of interest will then be sought after the Annual General Meeting by the newly elected General Committee from interested Members. Upon the receipt of expressions of interest, the General Committee will then appoint the Selectors for all available positions, together with a Chairman of Selectors for those Committees that require one i.e. Saturday & Tuesday pennant.

Those members that have already nominated for Selector positions need not put in an expression of interest as they will be considered by the new General Committee for those Selector positions they have nominated for.
