CARSONS and Mangotsfield Cricket Club chair Andy King has stood down after two years in the role.
Despite the difficulty of having to deal with covid during that time, the club had come a long way on the playing front with promotion for both the 1st and 2nd teams, a thriving junior section with both boys and girls’ teams, and a lively social side.
In a report read to the club's AGM at Pomphrey Hill in October, Andy thanked all those who had supported him in moving the club forward.
Sadly he was not able to attend as he was having to isolate, so members weren’t able to thank him and show their appreciation for all his hard work.
Ian Rosling replaces Andy as chair. Ian is a club stalwart, having served as 1st team captain and been part of the group who set up the junior section.
All four Saturday captains were reappointed – Sam Brayley, Mike Wallage, John Douglass and Colin Angell – as well as Jack O’Hara on a Sunday.
The club were pleased to be able to confirm Chloe Micklethwaite as the girls' coach and representative on the main committee, to give girls a full voice at meetings.
A successful trial of a mid-week team as a trial this year meant that a decision was taken to enter the team into a league.
Mike Wallage and some of the 2nd team attended the Bristol and District Cricket's Association awards evening, where they collected the trophy for winning their league from England and Gloucestershire player James Bracey.
