2022 AGM Review

Ashburton Cricket Club held their annual general meeting this week (Wed 30th Nov) where the membership joined together to elect their 2023 committee. There was a changing of the guard with Jerry Crouch stepping down as Chairman after 9 years at the helm. Chris Yeo put himself forward for the role and was elected unanimously. The only other change to the committee is AJ West, taking over from his father Marcus, as Sunday/Friendly Manager.


In addition to the above, the club were delighted to present Honorary Life Memberships to two members who have done so much for the club.


Chris Pascoe was the first individual to be honoured, following years of dedication to the club, both on and off the field. Chris has recently retired from playing, and hangs his boots up as the club’s leading run-scorer (8636 runs @ 27.07) and also the leading wicket taker (431 wickets @ 18.74)! Chris has also undertaken a variety of roles within the club’s committee and has latterly found a love and passion for cutting the outfield, whether it’s stripes or lines, the ground is always looking in tip-top shape thanks to his efforts!

CP reflected on the award; “Being involved in the club for 35 years I have had the honour of being Colts, Sunday and 1st 11 captain, I have coached and run a youth age group and more recently driven round and round in ever increasing circles to cut the outfield, but of all the honours this is, without doubt, the greatest one. Thank you to Ashburton Cricket Club it has been a blast!”

In addition, outgoing Chairman, Jerry Crouch was also presented with his Honorary Life Membership following his wide array of commitments and achievements for the club. Incoming Chairman Chris Yeo could not have put it better when he stated that “a true benchmark of a tenure, is the outgoing personnel leaving with the club in a better place than when they were first appointed, and this is certainly the case for Crouchy.”

Jerry reflected; “it’s a great honour to receive the award and I never expected to have one. Thank you to everyone who nominated me.”

Finally, the club also thanked Marcus West for his invaluable support and playing his part in the reaccreditation of ClubMark. Just to reiterate what ClubMark means;

CLUBMARK IS AN ACCREDITATION SCHEME FOR CRICKET CLUBS WHICH SHOWS THAT A CLUB IS SUSTAINABLE, WELL RUN AND PROVIDES THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT FOR ITS MEMBERS. CLUBMARK ACCREDITATION ALSO MEANS YOUR CLUB IS RECOGNISED AS A SAFE, REWARDING AND FULFILLING PLACE FOR PARTICIPANTS OF ALL AGES, AS WELL AS ASSURING PARENTS AND CARERS THAT THEY ARE CHOOSING THE RIGHT OPTION FOR THEIR YOUNG PEOPLE.

Club Secretary, Lloyd White said: “From drawing up business development plans, risk assessing our facilities, ensuring DBS checks are in place, churning out new volunteers, creating policies, and most importantly, creating a welcoming environment, the re-accreditation could not have been achieved without the incredible effort put in by Marcus. On behalf of the committee, we would like to express our utmost thanks to Westy for his invaluable contribution to this cricket club.”
