AGM 2013 papers
For reference, the proposed auditors are Chaytor, Steele and Co, Chartered Accountants of 9a Derby Street (adjoining Lloyds TSB), Ormskirk L39 2BJ.
Referring to the Liverpool/Skelmersdale proposal for the 1st and 2nd XI knockouts, a more logical and acceptable proposal would be for 8 teams (4 matches) to play in a Preliminary Round to leave 32 teams (16 matches) in the First Round. This would give the other 28 teams a free date early season for the arrangement of National or County Knockout matches.
As regards the 2013 fixtures already being done and having to redo them if the proposal went through, that's not a big ordeal as they could be done quite easily in an evening. In fact, two sets should have already been done. It's a simple task. Saying any changes would have to take effect in 2014 if the proposal is accepted is the Management Committee's way of saying they don't want the changes. I'm sorry but the excuses don't wash. If the person responsible is making excuses, he shouldn't be in the job as it's clearly too much for him.
Also why isn't the 1st XI Knockout draw listed in the AGM agenda?
