Aug 5, 2021 Secretary Annual Report 2020/21
Despite everything that has gone on this year with COVID19 there is only one place to start this year’s Annual Report and that is to place on record thanks to Andy Piercy for all his hard work and efforts in contributing to making the League what it is today. Andy was a Management Committee member in the first season of the League in 1993. In 1997 he took up the role of Publicity Secretary which prior to Full Time meant receiving phone calls from Clubs reporting the match scores, which included on occasion a phone call from a Night Club at 1.30am Sunday morning.
