FOLLOWING the excitement of gaining promotion and winning the Reading Senior Cup, a positive mood prevailed at Henley Town Football Club’s annual general meeting on Wednesday of last week.
The Eric Bailey Memorial Cup, presented to the person voted to have contributed the most to the club in the previous 12 months, went to Tony Kingston, who already had won the cup in 2006 and 2010. Prior to the presentation of the Eric Bailey Cup in 1999, he had also collected its predecessor, the Hookins and Hancock Cup, on three occasions.
Kingston was again voted to the post of secretary as was Kim Chapman to the chairman’s position. Geoffrey Biggs returns to the committee in the role of treasurer, but the office of vice-chairman was left open for the time being. Also elected to the committee were Lawrence Tindall, Phil Bell, Craig Sumner, Grant Goddard, Ray Emmons, Lee Povey, Stuart Hamblin and Fred Bucknell. John Bailey remains as president.
Although the financial position was satisfactory at present, there would be much additional expense arising from promotion, which involves longer journeys and a considerable increase in matches.
