Press/Results Secretary’s Report
Some of the Cup Finals have photographs, which have been sent to the Bucks Herald.
Any Other Business
The Committee have realised that an overcharge has been made to some teams’ fines. Where a team has been charged for not being able to fulfil a fixture they have recently also been charged £20 for half the referee’s fee. This extra £20 is not in our rules so should not have been charged. The treasurer will reduce this amount from any fines received by the relevant clubs next season. The clubs involved will be emailed by the Treasurer.
Haddenham have been asked to temporarily return the Field Shield as the last three winners have not added their names, and the Shield needs to be updated.

The committee meeting for that month will therefore be held the week before on 30 May.
The meeting for new clubs will be held on 3 July.
The Secretaries meeting will be held on August 7th at Rivets Sports and Social Club.
