This weekend saw Edinburgh City’s AGM and the election of a new committee. The club thanks those who saw the club through a record 2018/19 season and welcomes a new group who will hopefully be continuing the great work already put in.
Continuing as President after an incredibly successful year is Katrina Caldwell, having overseen the growth of the club to record membership and playing numbers.
Balancing the books once again is Rob Stone, who did a great job as treasurer over the last year having purchased two brand new kits for the club.
Stepping up from (extra)Ordinary Member to Secretary is Andrew Goode, having filled in last season where needed. He’s sure to stay on top of things as he brings his usual energy and enthusiasm to the committee!
After just a few months at the club, Adam Hardy is already settled and a valuable member and now wants to help out even more by taking on the Match Secretary position. Helping to organise players, referees and to ensure that kit is in the right place at the right time, he’s bound to do a great job.
The AGM saw two positions (Recruitment/Fundraising) combine and create a new role ‘Club Development’. This will be taken on by Dan Pratt who continues the work done last season.
Dave Ewing will once again be in charge of Publicity and have his hands full with redesign of the website over the summer. Let’s hope he doesn’t get side-tracked as he’s well known for laughing his way through the world wide web.
Another new position for the 2019/20 season is ‘Refereeing/Coaching Development’ and this will be taken on by Ella Paul. Ella is responsible for recognising and developing talent as a coach and will now extend that to include referees and coaches, which will be more important with the future implementation of shotclocks to the Scotland Korfball League.
We’ve appointed two Social Secretaries again this season, with Christie Smillie and Laura de Nooij taking on the not so little task of keeping all of our members entertained off-court! We’re certain that these two socialites will take it all in their stride.
Finally, another new post created this season is the Safeguarding and Welfare position which will be filled by Vivek Santayana who has some great experience looking after vulnerable members and will help the club stay on the right path.
