The AGM was held
in the Press room at
The Chairman of the branch is Ian Mather-Brewster whom many of you will know as the Groundsman at Middleton CC as well as a lecturer for the IOG and as a regional Pitch Advisor.
The Secretary is Lee Jackson. Lee is effectively the main groundsman for Manchester City FC although I don’t think he actually has that title.
The other Officer of the branch is Chris Pearson who works for Stockport Council and acts as the representative on the NW regional IOG branch.
The following is a very brief summary of the main points of the meeting –
Ian and Lee both
voiced their disappointment with the performance of the IOG NW regional
committee. As far as they were concerned
The IOG is planning to reorganise its regional structure. Ian said that IOG management were aware of the deficiencies of the NW committee.
Lee said that he was hoping that Sven-Goran Ericsson would agree to take on the (honorary) role of President of the branch in place of Stuart Pierce …. who has moved on…… Lee reckons that Sven is a most charming bloke who might even attend a meeting.
The next meeting is Weds 27/Feb at Middleton CC where Ian will talk about cricket square Spring preparation – all welcome, don’t have to be in the IOG.
