UK YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE AGM – Took place in Birmingham on Saturday 22 November which Geoff Morphitis attended, this is his report.
This was the first AGM of this organisation after being in existence for 2 years. It was a bit shambolic as compared to other AGMs. The Treasurer agreed that the accounts were not correct as there was no provision for unpaid meeting expenses for the 70 meetings where organisers had yet to submit a claim for 2014. It was also a shame that the Administrator had not distributed her annual report in advance which limited questions.
Unfortunately, our attempt to restructure the organisation did not get enough support so the format of the Upper Age group competition remains unchanged being a combined U20 and U17 competition. The matches for 2015 are on Saturday 18 April (Eton), Saturday 16 May (Lee Valley), Sunday 28 June (Allianz Park) and Sunday 26 July (Bromley).
