Progress with YCA Year Book 2018-19


I have today received the Presidentís Message for the YCA Year Book 2018-2019 and have updated accordingly the website and otherwise print-ready draft for the printer.


At the moment, gout prevents me shooting off to the printer in the hope of getting the printed Year Book sent out in time for the first match weekend, so in the meantime Iím hoping you can all get by with the Year Book data held here on the website:


If you see anything there regarding club detail which is wrong then please let me know, as I may yet be able to amend the hard copy at this stage.


Main changes in info that I recall are Sheffield venue, and captains for Sheffield B, York A and Huddersfield.


Most people have expressed acquiescence to their details as shown being published.† (One personís contact details will be in hard copy only, not on the website.)† If there are any issues regarding published personal details then let me know pronto.† Note that this year Iím not publishing postal addresses of club officilas, as they are not necessary except for mailing Year Books.


I anticipate the hard copy version of the Year Book will be received by you w/c 24/09/2018, but sooner if that is possible.
