    THE DORSET CRICKET YEARBOOK 2014

    Editorial

    Hello and welcome to the 2014 edition of The Dorset Cricket Yearbook! Following the first

    digital publication last year, we have decided to continue with the new modern design

    because it was a great success. This year we look to mix the old with the new (similar to

    many club teams out there!). The 2014 Yearbook has become a digital e-book with turning

    pages and a book style appearance.

    I would like to say I am privileged to be the editor of such a prestigious historic yearbook

    whose archives date back to around the 1970s. As a University student with a love of

    cricket, this has been a very exciting project for me. The good news is that the player

    statistics look a lot healthier than the previous rain affected season!

    In complete contrast to the 2012/13 season we saw the long awaited return of the large,

    bright, warm circle in the sky. Gone were the days of turning up to a ground to see sodden

    grass and puddles on and around the pitch. The weather was brilliant and everyone was

    confident and excited to complete a full season of competitive cricket.

    Now Im going to leave you to enjoy reliving the cricketing year of 2013 in Dorset. I hope

    that 2014 is a more prosperous year for all, and not just on the cricket field.

    THE DORSET CRICKET YEARBOOK 2014

    Dorset Cricket Board Report

    It has been another difficult year trying to balance the Board's Budget which influenced by a number of factors under review, along with our profile and how we are perceived by the public. We have been involved with a number of workshops at the behest of the ECB in which we have reconsidered our position and how we best serve cricket in Dorset. Surveys have been carried out, information digested and applied to our policy from the outcomes of brainstorming sessions. Results are soon to be published so that the public can be aware of how we operate. Alan Graham has decided to stand down as Secretary of the Board and will now take over as Secretary of the Dorset Cricket League, an appointment which will benefit Dorset Cricket. I would like to thank Alan on behalf of the Board for the high standards that have been set. With any luck the sun will shine this year and I hope for everyone involved in Dorset Cricket, a successful season.

    THE DORSET CRICKET YEARBOOK 2014

    Director of Crickets Report

    The 2013 season was very enjoyable, not least because the sun was shining and the majority of the scheduled matches were played. After the near complete disaster of the 2012 season it felt as though cricket had emerged again and took its rightful place in the sun. Thankfully no Clubs were taken under by the revenue problems caused by the previous season and the Dorset Funeral Plan League fixtures were nearly all played. Club cricket occupied a lot of our thoughts during 2013 as the Board and development team spent a good deal of time and resources supporting the network of clubs through Chance to Shine, Clubmark, facility applications and general club programmes. The ECB and Sport England are now fully focussed on increasing participation and retaining participation and the club network is vital to this if we are not going to see numbers drop off in the face of the ever increasing pressures of modern life.

    The main focus in 2013 for me was ensuring that we as a Board complied with the ECB requirements

    for a county board to be Ready to invest The Board members and staff attended a series of

    workshops to understand the outcomes process and to identify those outcomes. This involved using

    insight and self-assessment to understand what our customers require and for us to improve our

    operations. This culminated in the publication of our Outcomes document which is copied below The

    Board achieved full Ready to invest status in October this year. I would like to thank my fellow staff,

    Greg Parsons, Rob Newton and Gill Jones for their hard work and dedication and also Board

    members led by Barry Lewis and John Ridout, for their support throughout the process. The

    outcomes were identified after a series of discussions and consultation with representatives from all

    areas of cricket in the county. Hopefully at least some of them will reflect the aspirations of all of

    those involved in cricket in Dorset.

    We had already pre-empted the outcomes and participation work by commissioning the complete

    review of league cricket in the county through Alan Graham and John Ridout and a number of key

    people who attended the review meetings. I became fully involved in this process and the outcome

    was a new structure for the League which hopefully will cater for every level of player. This should

    provide enjoyable competitive cricket in a format which allows time to get home or socialise at a

    decent hour. Finding a format of competition which suits everyone is not easy, but I believe

    wholeheartedly, everyone who has attended the review meetings has the interests of Dorset cricket

    at heart. Whats more, their energy and knowledge made the whole process enjoyable and

    challenging. We will see how this goes in 2014 and we will use the experience to ma
