The minutes from the PLAYFORD FOOTBALL CLUB General Meeting held on 10th of June 2014
Several players were discussed individually, however it was felt that all players should be allowed to remain registered and continue playing for the club if they chose to.
Several potential new players were discussed, particularly Mike Howard, formerly of Trinity now living in Colchester. Had asked to sign but wanted assurances that he would play the majority of any match he was selected for. The group was willing to accommodate this request.
The new structure of the league was discussed and the attendees voted unanimously in favour of the change. ACTION: Notify the league of Playford’s YES vote - CJ
The sponsorship deal with 138.com runs until the July 2015. After this time the club will need to find a new sponsor.
Match fees have been £3 since the clubs inception in 1998. Due to the increasing costs and impending loss of a sponsor it has been decided that fees should be raised to £4.
Further funds will be raised through a £10 signing on fee. If a player fails to play 5 games the signing on fee will be returned as club credit.
The £1 club credit for running the line would remain.
Last season a loss was made on the training sessions. This was down to dwindling numbers during the winter and again at the tail-end of the season. It was decided that the sessions were beneficial and to retain them the cost would be increased to £3.
CJ stated his intention to stand-down as match day manager for the Reserve Team. Max Pryke was proposed to take over, he accepted.
The structure now stands that Chris Jones will oversee the club as a whole whilst the match day managers, Rich Jones and Max Pryke will have control over team selection, tactics and substitutions.
Playford have been entered in a Monday night eleven-a-side competition. It will be used to trial new players as well as giving the opportunity to players not getting as much match time on Sundays.
The club will issue a handbook to all new players. The book includes details of the club, their responsibilities and how the club operates. This way everyone has the same information and no one can claim they did not know.
Playford would have the same problem as every season; Farlingaye is not marked out until September giving us no home venue to organise friendlies.
ACTION: CJ to organise friendlies.
EoS 2015 - JH was asked if he would consider speaking with a former footballer friend about possibly being a speaker at the End of Season do in 2015.
