 CHAIRMAN'S REPORT  
   
There is no doubt that we as a club continue to make good progress and the 2014 season was no exception, both on and off the cricket field. In June we saw the official opening of the new practice nets at a cost in excess of £11,000 which were almost totally funded by an LCF grant courtesy of FD Todd & Sons. We also saw a great improvement on our outfield with the purchase of the new triple mower for £4,500.

On the field of play, our senior teams won no trophies or promotions this year, but all of them can feel reasonably pleased with their achievements. All three teams under the guidance of Mark, Rob and Neil respectively continue to develop as each season passes with more of our talented youngsters coming to the fore. The future looks very bright and three promotions are not beyond our reach for next season. The PEL team performed consistently only to lose a championship play-off against a very strong SHB side after looking like winning for the majority of the game. 

Our greatest ongoing achievement however, has to be the growing potential of the junior section. Ian Pope and George Peirse's U15s team won their league following a fantastic last match victory against Easingwold. Chris Fenwick's young and inexperienced U13s team made great progress over the course of the season and all of the squad will have benefited from some of the tough challenges they faced. The U11s under manager Barry Petty performed well and two of the side Phoebe Turner and Ben Collinson represented Yorkshire over the course of the season. Unfortunately the U9s only managed to play a couple of matches but their manager Mark Cook assures me that there was a lot of talent and enthusiasm within their ranks. On behalf of the committee I would like to thank all the team managers, coaches and parents for their help and support with junior cricket at Thirsk.

For those of you who attended the club presentation night in November, you will know that the main focus of my speech was to acknowledge the great people who put in a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes, not just this year, but over the last few seasons.  I again
would like to put on record my thanks to each and every one that contributes to the running of the club. 

Thanks go to Mark, Rob and Neil who ensured we fielded three senior teams every week. Off the field, theirs is not an easy job, particularly when having to juggle player availability right up until the last minute. I am delighted that all our captains are prepared to remain in their posts for next season.

Ken Major, has done sterling service in his first year as Secretary and has provided enormous support to both me and the committee. Ken is always on hand to lend his support and expertise to the various ground maintenance/net refurbishment working parties. 

Also our Treasurer, Mark Cook, who helps to keep us on the financial straight and narrow.

Philip Robshaw who maintains and updates the club website as well as helping out when and whenever possible is yet again very deserving of our thanks.

To our Ladies Social & Fund Raising committee, who no doubt will have some exciting ideas for social events and fund raising during 2015. 

I would also like to formally thank Christine and Tracey along with their small band of helpers, who as always went above and beyond the call of duty to keep us fed and watered with superb cricket teas, which are the envy of the league.  

Our two groundsmen Andy Clapham at Thirsk and Alan Hickman who is an extremely willing volunteer at HRAP continually perform beyond the call of duty and we are very lucky to have them on board.

Lastly but certainly by no means least many thanks to Tony Spence, Chris Fenwick, Neil & Harry Collinson, Adie & Jake Porter and Tom Hogg who are always there when any help is needed. 

And so, a final plea. We do need more people to 'do stuff' for the club. You need not take on a formal role but just be prepared to do some small task to help lighten the load. So be prepared for a tap on the shoulder from Tony or Sam Spence or another member of the club committee with a request to help out. 

We are hoping to have some very exciting news about a potential new sponsorship deal in the near future. In the meantime many thanks Nick Stafford at Hambleton Ales and all the other public spirited businesses and individuals who sponsored the club during 2014 we couldn't survive without their support.

All in all, it has been a good season on and off the field and I look forward with great confidence and excitement to next summer. Although my workload seems to be growing year on year I am still 100% committed to this great club and have been honoured to have served as your Chairman since 2008.  (George H Gifford)

 CHRISTINE CHRISTON - THIRSK CC TEAS  
   
Since Christine Christon first started doing Thirsk CC’s cricket teas in 2005 they have quite rightly been recognised amongst the very best in York Senior and Nidderdale League circles. With the exception of a couple of Saturdays during the 2014 season Christine has prepared and made teas for all 3 of our teams every week throughout - a truly amazing effort when one considers the time and work involved. Unfortunately Christine has now decided to stand down which of course is going to leave a massive hole within the club. I’m certain I speak on behalf of all our members when I say thank-you Christine you have been an absolute superstar. We very much hope you enjoy all the free time you’re are going to have on your hands. George H Gifford (Chairman)
