Russell elected as President
Bill Russell has promised to ‘give it my best shot’
following his election as our new president at the Annual General
Meeting last night. He succeeds our former chairman and president
Albert Bocking, who died last summer.
Russell, a chartered insurance broker by trade, has been a member at Trent Bridge for more than 50 years and is a former captain of the Second XI.
He also played for Notts Amateurs for many years and is a member of the MCC and the Lord’s Taverners.
He said: “In the past 50 years I have enjoyed many high points while supporting the team at Trent Bridge - and also had to suffer occasionally.
“I would like to thank the members for electing me as their President. It’s a challenging time and I promise I will give it my best shot, and I will do what I can to assist the committee and the chief executive and his talented team.”
