Some of you are aware, but some may not be so I thought I would email you all to say I've taken on the role of Chairman for Desford Striders. Firstly, just to say Francis has done great work over the last few years so I know I have a hard act to follow!
I also wanted to let you know that we are hoping to introduce a junior section to the club with the help of Guy Dayman, Cheryl Wright , Ryan Pegg and Dom Lane. We'll also need lots of help from others initially though, so if you're interested and can spare any time at all let me know PLEASE! With this in mind we'd like to look for funding and sponsorship for the junior section, and the club in general from any organisations, and I'd like someone to specifically focus on this. If you're interested please contact me. (This could be a committee role, but not necessarily).
Looking forward to helping to move the club further forward and if you have any ideas or suggestions just let me know on this email address.
Thanks everyone - Andy Ball
