Robin thanked all attendees at the meeting and congratulated the clubs on another successful season. Our sponsors continue to assist the league and he offered thanks to them for their support. The new County Structure was mentioned but would be dealt with at the County A.G.M. which will follow the League meeting. The league officers have served, including the coming season, Robin 10 years Gary 12 years Mike 34 years.

Report        Treasurer

Gary Hill presented the accounts to the meeting and gave a full explanation of them. They were accepted unanimously with no problems being highlighted. A donation of £500 was made to the juniors. The Treasurer recommended no increase in fees for the following season.

Report        Secretary

Fines would continue for any team not completing the result cards correctly. It assists in the smooth running of the league and all captains should be made aware of how to complete a card.

As usual Bonfire Night falls on the 5th of November and Valentines Night will be on the 14th February. Is it possible to look at the fixtures in detail when you get them and alter any fixtures as per the league rules?

Would all clubs please mark on the Ranking List every under 18 year old so we can have a full entry for the Robin Clements Cup.

The County was delighted to have Leicester Squash club in the National Premier League and fixtures would be altered to assist them, and allow players to come along and watch the matches.
Hinckley Squash Club are relocating after Xmas and will probably be unable to use their new courts for some time. This will again mean fixture alterations and all other clubs are asked to “go the extra mile” to overcome this short-term problem. Heath Jennings and Mike Blasdale will meet to discus the fixtures asap.
