AGM 2021 – Donald Amour announced as Club’s President

Donald Amour has been elected Club President following Clydesdale Cricket & Hockey Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Monday 21st June, which was held virtually over Zoom.

Donald takes over from Craig Madden as President. We would like to thank Craig for all of his hard work during his time as President which included leading the club through the COVID-19 pandemic and overseeing the much needed refurbishment of our clubhouse.

Donald also steps up from his role as Vice President which will now be occupied by former hockey 1st XI captain & Men’s chair Ali Bleach, whilst current Hockey Committee Secretary Christine Sherwood has also been invited on to General Committee. The remainder of the General Committee is still as it was from the previous year.
