Gilliat's AGM

A shot from last night’s AGM where, on the 40th Anniversary, we elected Richard Gilliat’s 1973 Championship-winning side as Life Vice Presidents. Five of that side were unable to attend (Richards, Greenidge, O’Sullivan, Turner and Mottram) but we hope to see some of them later in the year. Those that were there last night and presented to a very well-attended meeting are lining up for Mrs Marlow to take the photograph. They are, left to right:

Richard Lewis, Andy Murtagh, Bob Stephenson, Bob Herman, Mike Taylor, Trevor Jesty, Peter Sainsbury and Richard Gilliat.

Apart from them and the 1961 Champions, only Rod Bransgrove, Mrs Charlie Knott and Mrs Desmond Eagar are Life Vice Presidents. A separate group of Vice Presidents are elected annually

Watching are Alan Head (Committee), Mike Soper (ex Surrey Chairman) and Brian Ford (ex Hants Chairman). Behind the players on the top table are senior figures at Hampshire Cricket (Chris Egelstaff, Terry Crump (Members’ Chairman), Nick Pocock (President), David mann and Stuart Robertson)
