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 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, 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 Joe. 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 and I am the Club Secretary at Effingham CC.
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.”
Hi, I’m Ben and I am the Treasurer here at ECC
I joined Effingham CC in 2005, following in the footsteps of my father, Clive.
Whilst family commitments have reduced my capacity for playing in the last few years, I still enjoy popping down to the club for a beer and playing the occasional game for the 2nd XI.
Being involved with the committee as treasurer is a privilege, and I look forward to helping the club go from strength to strength.
ECC Club Welfare Officer
Hi, I’m Richard. I live in Bookham and have been with Effingham Cricket Club since 2019. My son, Thomas, is also a member – turning out for the Juniors. I’ve loved cricket since I was old enough to hold a bat, and I’ve been lucky enough over the years to play cricket in places as varied as China, Venezuela, Mexico and Argentina.
As Club Welfare Officer, my role is to ensure players of all ages feel safe and supported by the club. Safeguarding comes in many forms, and the Covid situation has shown us how important having a wonderful group of fellow club members around us can be for our wellbeing. It’s not just about enjoying the cricket – although that is, of course, the main attraction of a club like Effingham.
I work at ACS International Schools in Cobham and one of my roles is as a safeguarding lead. I’m still a relatively new member so I look forward to getting to know more of you and to hearing from you how we as a committee can continue to serve you and move our lovely club forward.
Honorary Fixture Secretary
Hi, I’m Simon!
I have been involved with Effingham Cricket Club since 2013. I first came to the club as an umpire for the 1st XI but then returned to playing, largely for the Sunday VCL side.
I am delighted to be taking on the role of Fixture Secretary and follow in the footsteps of stalwart Josh Farrell.
Social and Events Secretary
Youth Development Officer
Hi! I’m Rob and I am serving on the Committee as Communications Secretary.
I have been playing for Effingham Cricket Club for eleven years since joining as a teenager, with turnouts for all three senior XIs.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my cricket at Effingham and look forward to helping out the club
Hi, I’m Ed and I’ve been a member of Effingham Cricket Club since joining as an U9 in the early 2000s. Since then I’ve played over 100 matches for the 1st XI, been involved in three 1st XI promotions and captained the Sunday XI for three seasons. I’ve been 1st XI captain since 2018 and am honoured to be taking over from Burlo as Club Captain.
