Cape Town softball association executive re-elected

2017-08-01 06:01

The Cape Town Softball Association’s (CTSA) members voted to keep the entire executive committee at their annual meeting on Sunday.

The committee members held office for the past two years.

Noore Nacerodien beat Elton Davids for the top post. Davids suffered the same defeat against first deputy chairperson Bennet Bailey.

“We managed to ensure good governance in terms of our fiduciary responsibilities. We will endeavour to get the players’ forum off the ground. The old adage of ‘sport builds character’ must not just be a cliché but an outcome of our intended inclusivity. It is important that we start identifying and developing good successors and have a method of their inclusion in the term ahead. Come 2019, the baton must be handed over,” says Nacerodien.

The top brass will once again be at the helm of Cape Town Softball Association’s executive committee for the next two years.

Quite a few notable candidates were eager to make themselves available for a key post, including Elton Davids and Phouzaan Siebritz who opposed the posts of Nacerodien and Bailey, the president and vice-president respectively. But they had to eventually play second fiddle and lost out in the election vote count as the majority were in favour of Nacerodien and Bailey second in command to run for office again.

Nacerodien says the voice of the clubs’ delegates was clear that they entrusted the top brass with the leadership of the association and wanted them to carry on with the work and commitment set out over the past two years, maintaining growth and development on a larger scale.

“The fact that the softballers have wholeheartedly placed their confidence in the executive committee does not at all mean we need relax now. Much contribution from all spheres and the willingness to work together will add a new dimension and trust to all new tasks undertaken as there is a desperate need for a major tune-up to ensure our development programme is meeting the requirement we would like to accomplish.,” says Nacerodien.

The office bearers serving on the CTSA executive committee are: Nacerodien as president, Bailey and Christina van Neel as vice-presidents, Phouzaan Siebritz as secretary, Amanda Christianson as financial director, Pam Fredericks as youth director, Andrew Wentzel, as director of development, and Peter Lawrence, technical director.
