KHIST Board Minutes March 2017




There were SIX Members of the Board present and The Treasurer GARETH DOYLE reported the latest Bank Balances and Cash in Hand. He also reported that work had already begun in advance relating to the preparation of the Annual Accounts for the year ending 31 March 2017.

The Final Whistle has been closed several days this week whilst re-furbishment work is carried out by Sadler’s Brewery who are at present the Site Managers whilst they consider a takeover of the three Bars in June this year.

Dates for your Diary include the Worcestershire Senior Urn Final on Wednesday 5th April when

Bromsgrove Sporting play Highgate United.

We have arranged an “ABBA EVENING” on FRIDAY 21ST APRIL 2017 AT 730PM to be held in the

Aggborough Suite . The Tickets will soon be available to include as always food and a raffle.

The KHIST SPONSORED PLAYER OF THE MONTH AWARDS have recently been handed to

RYAN CROASDALE for January and for last December to JAMES McQUILKIN who has also scooped the Award for February which will be presented at the Harrogate Match (Sat 25 March)

Discussions had taken place earlier this year regarding “Coaches to Wembley” for the National League Play Off Final on Sunday 14th May since which time the Play Off Finals for both the North and South Divisions have been arranged for the previous Day I.e. Saturday 13th May. This probably scuppers this possibility since we may not know those venues until the last day of the Season and Supporters will not want to commit to travel arrangements not knowing how many miles are involved on successive days in May even if the Club is still involved following the Semi-Final.

Another possible Outing to Wembley involved our two local Clubs Coleshill Town and more particularly our near neighbours Bromsgrove Sporting who had Crowds of 2984 and 3349 for its Quarter and Semi Final Matches but disappointingly lost their chance with an aggregate 2-1 defeat in the second leg in Lincolnshire last Saturday. So the F. A. Vase Final at Wembley on Saturday 21st May will be Cleethorpes v South Shields. The F. A. Trophy Final will take place later the same day – Macclesfield v York and it has been decided by the Club and KHIST that it would not be viable to organise transport this year since neither of those Clubs are well supported.

The next KHIST LOTTERY DRAW will be held at the Club on Monday 10th April at 8pm – everyone is invited to watch the Draw being made. We still need Agents to sell tickets which provide a much needed income for the Club.

The next KHIST Board Meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th April 2017 at 8pm
