CENTENARY COMMITTEE
The earliest date available is 1950, in that year Len Snow was elected. Len was an influential member serving as President for a number of years.

In 1958 two members were elected for services rendered, Alf Dilks, who was treasurer for many years, and David Wright, who was a long standing chairman of the committee.

In 1959 Bill Clayton was elected; Bill was by manner a steady and true character, always willing to help and give advice when requested.

1977 saw Joe Poxton elected, he worked for many years in the interest of the club. Also in that year, Tom Morgan was elected. Tom has been to date the longest serving cricket captain, an extremely able leader both on and off the field, served as president for a number of years, is currently a trustee, he is also the teller of rather tall stories.

In 1978 Arthur Barton was elected, served as secretary for nine years, trustee for four years, was attached to the general committee for an unbroken period of 18 years, very concerned in the building of the new club.

In 1979 Peter Biddlestone was elected, our present treasurer, having served in that capacity for 23 years to date, also concerned in the building of the new club.

In 1981 Horace Cartwright was elected, a good and trusted worker for the club; has been social secretary for many years.
