The club committee works together to provide the members of the club with the cricketing experience they ask us to deliver. The key personnel and positions on our club committee are as follows:
“Hello. I’m Paul Stroud, I live in nearby West Horsley and was elected Chairman of the club in 2015.
As Chairman, I am leading a club-wide programme of comprehensive redevelopment of all our facilities and cricketing practices.”
I am also an ECB certified Level 2 coach and led one of our junior age groups for 4 years, from U12 through to U15, transitioning very successfully into senior cricket.
This is a wonderful cricket club, with lots of enthusiastic adults and youngsters. Our job now is to enhance the facilities and ground, leaving a lasting legacy for future generations.”
“I’m Dave Roberts, Vice-Chairman and a member of the Executive committee for ECC. I am passionate about the game of cricket and enjoy playing for Effingham, especially when in the same team as my son Joseph. I believe that all of our players, young and old, should get a “fair go” during matches – this is an inherent part of the Club philosophy.
I have been involved in various projects this year, in particular the refurbishment of the outdoor nets. I am also leading the investigations into the eventual replacement of our quaint old pavilion with something a little more ‘fit for purpose’.
Effingham is a family club with a great atmosphere, and I’m very fortunate to be a part of the team.”
“Hi, I am Lewis Saffin and I am the Club Secretary at Effingham CC. My job is to ensure that the club keeps ticking from an administrative point of view.
I was elected in 2019, 16 seasons after joining as an Under-9 in 2003. I have grown up in the Effingham area and, for 15 years, Effingham Cricket Club has been the perfect place to enjoy and develop my cricket. I have progressed through the age groups, from Under-9 to Under-16, on to Sunday cricket and now in the Saturday adult teams. My experience is typical of many of our current adult cricketers and the smooth transition from junior cricket to adult cricket that our club offers is one of many reasons why our club is such a good place, especially for young cricketers.
I look forward to paying the club back for the many wonderful experiences I have enjoyed at the club with my service in this role.“
Club Welfare Officer
Hon. Fixture Secretary
“Hi, I’m Josh. I’ve been playing cricket at Effingham since 2003 and have been a regular feature in our Saturday and Sunday sides for most of that time.
I have played over 200 matches for Effingham and have been skipper of the 2nd XI, VCL XI and Sunday XI. I am also a level 2 ECB certified coach, so you’ll find me down at the Club helping out with the junior training on a Friday night.
In my role as Fixtures Secretary, I have to liaise with a lot of other clubs as I cover the fixture planning for all senior and junior matches. Please contact me as early as possible to confirm all matches”.
Junior Cricket Director
“My role is make sure the junior sections are a great, fun cricket experience for all of our members.
I aim to achieve this by giving every player a clear route through the age groups and into senior cricket, varied and great value coaching to develop cricket skills and understanding and the feeling of being part of a fun and family orientated Club.
Please do feel free to come and join our wonderful Friday evening training sessions at Effingham, players of all ages and abilities are very welcome.”
