Hanover Soccer Club

Chairman Report 2020

Dear Members, (Players, Parents, Coaches and Officials of Hanover Soccer Club)

In all of my previous annual reports I have began by stating what an honor it has been to be to in this position, it still is an honor, however 2020 certainly has been the most stressful and frustrating year in the 20 some years I have been involved with the club.

Covid 19 has, not only for me, but for many of our volunteers caused even more time consuming problems than if we had been playing the beautiful game.

The biggest single disappointment for us was taking decision to cancel our Mini and Youth programs.

These programs are the lifeblood and future of our club, many of our now senior players participated in the programs.

The season finally got underway later than usual, then ended abruptly approximately two thirds way through! This heaped more disappointment and frustration on players and staff. However, two positives came from this, in a year when being “positive” is NOT good, and I jest.

First positive relates to our soccer park, the fields got a rest at the beginning of the season and then at the end , therefore, when fall arrived they had accidentally received the much needed break they required.

The second positive relates to our programming. Details will be outlined in the Technical Report.

Finally, I would like to thank your Board of Directors who have been diligent, insightful and forward thinking in the areas of Governance and Finance, the changes applied should allow this club to continue from a position of strength.

Thank you all for your support and wish everyone well for the much anticipated 2021 season.

Respectfully submitted

Norman Anderson
