A very Happy New Year to you all.

Two things if I may:

1. I step down at the AGM on 22/1 this year so just over two weeks left!

2. History will rightly be the judge but the facts must be established and on the record. The Club’s General Committee unanimously voted to support the new T20 competition after a lengthy debate across the game and having received and reflected upon a comprehensive written paper from CEO Guy Lavender and myself. Our paper set out the background, pros and cons and other rationale but given the strategic importance of the issue deliberately did NOT make a recommendation to the GC. Contrary to the perception of some the Club’s GC is comprised of many professional, well meaning and very independent folk who are more than capable of making their own decisions! As the Member of the ECB for Somerset County Cricket Club (there are 19 of us representing the FCCs and MCC) I consequently voted in accordance with the General Committee’s decision which to my mind is exactly as the process should be.

I look forward to seeing those who can make it at the AGM.

Cheers, Andy
