CMS At Lord's 2018
Three fantastic guests, a new President, a new Chairman, a new Patron for the Society!
The Home of Cricket - where better to formally introduce our new President, Chairman and Patron? Like many a great cricketer Keith Hayhurst decided that this meeting would mark his retirement as Chair of CMS after an astonishing 28 years in post. Keith already holds the position of President and still intends to play an active part in CMS. Richard Brown, formerly Vice Chair will become Chairman as outlined at the AGM. Our Vice-President (of 30 years!) in his role of M/C, also announced that Clive Lloyd CBE has agreed to become our first ever patron and will serve for a three year period.

This year's AGM was once again a pretty busy affair! Our guests, Ted Dexter CBE, and Vanburn Holder not only provided record-breaking numbers of autographs, but added fascinating insights into their careers and thoughts of the modern game when addressing members' questions in not one, but two Q&A sessions spanning lunch.
Our first meeting of the 2017/18 season was marked by a celebratory cake and accompanying cupcakes (all with appropriate design, please note!. The Members' Suite at Old Trafford afforded us once more an excellent lunch, followed by our latest auction. (Please check out our Auctions page for prices realised listing).
