Cromer Cricket Club's preparations for the new cricket season have already begun.

A very successful and well-attended annual was recently held and aside from the usual reports and elections, it highlighted the club's short-term and long-term intentions.

The club is aiming to achieve the Clubmark accreditation which is vital for North Norfolk's premier club to have as they look to develop on and off the field.

The main aim of the Clubmark is to show that the club has a commitment to promote cricket to people of all ages, sex, ability, race and religion.

In doing this the club has introduced four new roles - school liaison officer, women and girls co-ordinator, coaching co-ordinator and club development officer.

The new position of club development officer has been filled by Alan Warnes and he will have an important role in the forward movement of the club. Peter Gascoyne will again be the club's welfare officer.

The work of the president, chairman and all the committee was praised and their excellent work and commitment was reflected by the fact that everyone was prepared to again stand for their positions. And with some new members elected, the club has a 20-plus strong committee.

But the club wants everyone to get involved, from the club president to the parents of the junior players.

On the field there is no change to the running of the first team, with Tom Davies and Colin Brown remaining as captain and vice-captain respectively. They will be hoping that their young side can show their full potential in the upcoming Alliance Premier Division season without a professional.

There has been a change in second team skipper. Last year's successful promotion-winning captain Andy Van Greuning stepped down from the position. A special mention of thanks was given for Andy's superb efforts last time out.

Alan Lithins was elected as new second team captain, with Peter Gascoyne as his new vice-captain.

Former second team skipper Andy Van Greuning is now in charge of the Sunday League XI.
