The season got off to an excellent start, when new Tigers Chairman, Paul Duffen was tile guest for the September meeting. Peter Swann followed in October with his usual down to earth comments, then in November, Brian Horton have an interesting talk on his career. A very well attended Christmas Lunch had Paul Duffen, Phil Brown and Brian Horton as our guests.

Look North’s Simon Clark was January’s guest followed by Steve Parkin in February. March saw Luke Cash explaining the mysteries of Prozone with Dave Fraser standing in at short notice with David Bond for the April meeting. The end of season Lunch in May enabled us to make the presentation to ADAM PEARSON for his help and assistance to the Senior Tigers during his time as Chairman.

The Committee are extremely grateful to all our Speakers for so readily giving up their time to come to our meetings.

During the season the Senior Tigers sponsored the kit of Damien Delaney (later Ryan France), Nathan Doyle and Richard Garcia. We also subsidised the liquid refreshments at both lunches.

The season’s meetings had a regular attendance for around 100 which was no doubt helped by the success of the Club on the field.

I must also thank Paul Duffen for his help behind the scenes, the Events team for help with meetings and lunches, Steve Jordan on the P.A. and Matt Carrington for our notes in the Matchday Programme.

To you the members thanks for your continued support, many of you have been with us since our formation in 1999, and lastly thanks to all The Committee members and Bill Shirley for their ever ready help.

I hope you will enjoy the meetings this season.


GORDON TOWSE (Chairman) August 2008
