Club AGM 2010

The SERC had its AGM on Friday night last and over 40 club members turned up. The meeting went off well and reviewed what was a great year for the club. There was some minor adjustments made to the committee, Derek Webb stood down as President but remained on as secretary. Popular club member Willy Murphy is the new club President, so all bow in his presence. Mick Considine left the PRO job for his new title as Youth Development officer. John Maguire is the new Max Clifford in the PRO job… James Forde and Ciaran Furlong stepped down as treasurer and assist treasurer. We thank them both for their excellent work for the past 2 years. Jaqi Gannon his the new person with the purse strings. After that there was not much change on the committee… however we are delighted to announce Derrick Evans as Club Captain.
