received and it is with great sadness and regret that I feel I have no option but to leave the club.
Despite the results, I enjoyed my first season as captain and was left believing that next season I would be given the opportunity to put into practice some of the valuable and sometimes painful lessons that I had learned. This sadly was not to be.
It was my decision to practise only once a week, opting for quality rather than quantity. This was an attempt to revive what had become a tired and jaded training system and although not popular with the committee and some of the players would still work if implemented properly. Although I made it clear to the cricket committee that we would revert back to training two nights next season if that was what the players wanted.
Only three regular first team players including myself, were available for every game of the season due to injury, holidays, weddings and various other reasons.
I was informed the following evening that the club had appointed John as captain, or to put it more bluntly they had sacked the existing one! (my words not the committees). If after the meeting, I had been offered the captaincy again I would have declined it, for I would always know that they had asked someone else and that I could not possibly have the full backing and support of the committees. If the powers that be at Bacup Cricket Club were looking for a scapegoat for the seasons failings, it would now appear that they had one.
The reasons listed above are not written as an excuse for the season's failures, but stated as a fact. This is not to say however that the whole season should be written off as a total failure.
I therefore cannot reconcile my position as a Bacup player with the treatment I have Nike Air Max Floral White
We Air Max 90 Outfits Men had many problems to overcome both before and during the season:
At the end of September I was asked to attend a meeting at the club with the cricket committee on the 10 October and was surprised to be told that they would also be interviewing someone else, Nike Air Max 90 Grey Green
At the end of the 2005 season there was nobody more disappointed about the first eleven performances than myself. I stated, in a speech at the end of season event, how poor the season had been but was optimistic about continuing as captain and turning our fortunes around.
A lot of positives arose from certain areas of the team's performance such as the ongoing maturing of Paul Gallagher and Tim Farragher into very good cricketers; the recovery of James Cunliffe from a serious knee injury and the 'blooding' of several young second eleven players into the first team for some valuable experience. Incoming captain, John Chapman, also showed his versatility late in the season as an opening batsman and his glove work was as good as ever.
I wish John every success in his new role and hope that his passion and fire can inspire Bacup to future glories. I believe that he has a wonderful group of players to work with.
I was told that they had approached John Chapman to apply for the job. From that moment, I felt the rest of the interview was totally irrelevant, Nike Air Max Black Pink
I have made mistakes as captain and will openly admit to them and by doing so would hope, given the chance, to have become a better captain in the future. This however takes time.

as it appeared to me that by asking John to apply, certain members of the committee already knew who they wanted.

that person being John Chapman. On attending the meeting I first of all let it be known how unhappy I was at the decision to interview another player without first discussing with me my position as current captain.
Since 11 October and the writing of this letter on 27 October I have received no contact from Bacup CC other than a short phone call from Neal Wilkinson to discuss the presentation night. No reason for my dismissal has been offered except that I did not appear very positive at the interview, which is not surprising under the circumstances!
