Not long until the season starts now!
As you are all aware, we at Alton CC are always on the lookout for new potential sponsors, and this year is no different! As a club, sponsorship money is vitally important for us to survive.
From my years of doing this, I have found that the best results we have had, have come from our members, or someone directly linked to a member.
I am asking you for your help on this. Please can you all have a think about whether you know somebody who may be interested in exposure via sponsorship with us. OR perhaps your own company you work for might be interested. For example, I work for TaylorMade Golf and a couple of years ago, on the off chance I asked our marketing director if they could do anything and ended up getting £500 to hang up 2 banners at the ground.
Myself and my team have produced the attached document which is very simple and outlines what the club is about, what we can offer in terms of sponsorship, and what is in it for the potential sponsor.
Please, please, please, ask as many people as you can think of. THE WORST THEY CAN SAY IS NO!!!

Alton Cricket Club recently held their AGM, this has resulted in a number of changes on the Club Executive Committee:-
- Chairman Graeme Hughes
- Secretary James Foulkes
- Treasurer Charlie Green
- Club Captain / Vice Chairman Michael Heffernan
- Club Head Coach Scott Myers
Graeme Hughes new Chairman took the opportunity on behalf of the club members to thank Richard Myers, who stood down as Chairman, for his considerable efforts and time that he had given to the club over a number of years.
“He stated that if it had not been for Richard’s hard work the club would not have been as successful as it had been”. Graeme also thanked all the members who gave of their time for the benefit club, this included all members of the committee, team managers, and coaches.
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 16th November at the Clubhouse, starting at 7:30pm.
Please make every effort to attend. Do not assume that we will make the minimum numbers as we have been very close to not reaching the quorum in recent years.
All members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The meeting should only take an hour and is also a good time to meet up with people you may not have seen since the summer.
The bar will be open!
