Happy New Year to you too.

There's much to pick through there, but surely Andy Nash steps down from the chair in 2018 - not 2019?



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

He's stepping down after the main AGM and that is usually in early January so it would be in 2019.

This year was a bit different with 'Tommy' arriving. Maybe it will be different in 2018 as well

Wrong again.

Nash steps down at the AGM in January 2018, and formally hands over to Charles Clark with immediate effect. That is 2018.

And who is "Tommy"?

Really? Could be. Will change it if that's the case. But when I was talking him in late September he was talking as if he had another year so I simply assumed he was talking about the AGM at the end of the 2018 season. Not the one at the end of 2017 that happens in 2018.

Makes sense I suppose.

Go on.... have a bit if a think about 'Tommy' bet you can work it out if you try really really hard.

Cheers both. Will change it when I get home. Hmmmm will be more interesting than I imagined next year then. Belted in and it's done. Once more our posters keep us up to date and factual.

Don't be nervous Scrumper. Tom likes to get one over on us if he can but info comes and info goes and when it's wrong it's wrong, Keeps us honest and even Tom can be right every now and then.

I doubt cable news will be bugging him for an exclusive and the New Year is still here.

Welcome to 2018.

I think his reference to Tommy refers to Lee Cooper. Hilarious or disrespectful, take your pick.

Well, well, the year turns and "just like that" the point scoring begins again.

Happy New Year one & all.

Nice summary Grockle.

Having survived nearly two weeks when air temperatures haven't risen above -22C & have frequently dipped below -30C for prolonged periods, I'm rather looking forward to April at the County Ground in balmy single digit weather !

May 2018 bring us all continuing passion and enthusiasm for all matters SCC.

And perhaps a trifle less bickering.

It will be so refreshing for us to hit our straps in the early weeks of the season, rather than waiting until mid July.

He said, optimistically !

“Mr Clark was endorsed unanimously for the Chairmanship at a recent meeting of the Club’s General Committee and his appointment will take effect from the date of the AGM.”

It sounds pretty straightforward to me.

A very balanced assessment, Grockle.

Many thanks for all your work in maintaining this site - and long may that continue.

The best thing about the site is that I have met many very nice people directly, or indirectly, through it. A very happy new year to all - but particularly to them.

Only 'straightforward' if you've read that particular report Clarence.

Someone read my summary. Pointed the error out. Writer changed it with thanks.

THAT also seems pretty 'straightforward' as well.

Though I didn't detect any argument from anyone anyway myself

Thank you, Prebendary.

As has been known before, I echo your sentiments exactly.

Thanks, Grockle, for getting the new year started with a nice balance of optimism and reality. In a life now much closer to its end than its beginning I can see no point in getting cast down by pessimism.

And thanks for keeping this site going for yet another year, providing as it does so much information, occasional brilliance, flashes of great humour and continuing friendships.

Happy New Year to all.

Happy New Year Grockle.

After my disastrous prediction last year that the game at the Oval would end in a draw, I confidently predict for this championship season Somerset won't even turn up there.

Apart from that let's hope we start well in April

There are more than 2 options CH but don't let that stop you weighing in with..... well I'm not sure what really. Thanks for helping Tom out though.

Yeah I'm out by about 10 days WSM. Thought we started earlier but it's my student's graduation on the 12th.

Hope that didn't cause too much stress and strain for you on Day 1 of 2018. I'll add a few more when I get the time.
