AGM - Wednesday 19th October - Turnbridge WMC

The Supporters Association of the Huddersfield Giants held their Annual General Meeting in the convivial surroundings of Turnbridge WMC on Wednesday 19th October.

After Dave Calverley, the outgoing Chairman, had welcomed guests Scott Grix and James Brammer, he gave his report on the first 18 months of the resurrected society.

There had been many positives in that time. These included the outstanding speakers on Tuesdays, the excellent visits [Heritage Museum, Galpharm Stadium] and fun events at Turnbridge [quizzes, games evenings, nostalgia events] on Wednesdays. Membership is now over 60 - more double the projected figure of 12 months ago. Read the full report [url= 2011.html]here[/url].

After thanking the committee for their enthusiasm and commitment, Dave moved on to the first presentation of the evening. This was the Association's 'Harold Wagstaffe Trophy, awarded to the player whom the members considered to be the club's most valued player, the player they would least like to see leave the Giants. In appreciation, he joined the ever-increasing number of supporters who wear the Fartown Fez.

A total of 10 players had been nominated but in the end it was a two horse race between Luke Robinson and Scott Grix. Scott narrowly pipped Luke at the post and was presented with the trophy by Dave. Genuinely pleased and surprised, Scott thanked the members for the honour they had bestowed upon him.

Next a cheque for 250 was presented to James Brammer [Giants' Marketing Manager] by James Atherton [treasurer]. This was to be used to promote youth development both at the club and its catchment area.

Details of the newly elected committee can be found here.

In closing, Dave reminded the assembled throng about Tony Johnson's appearance at November's meeting, the trip to Ossett Brewery, also in November, and the Christmas Party incorporating a Reindeer Race Night.
