Sheffield Bladerunners 2014 AGM
The Sheffield Bladerunners held its Annual General Meeting in the city centre at the Old Queen's Head pub on Saturday 11th Jan. The Old Queen's head is Sheffield's oldest domestic building and a great symbol of the history of the city, which the Bladerunners are proud to recognize by choosing this venue.
The following elections of posts for the upcoming season were voted upon:
Team manager – Nick Wills
Coach – Yovanny Lopez ( assisted by Nick Wills and Rich Green)
Captain – Rich Green (vice captains – Jon Gardner & Jim Ellis)
Treasurer – Jon Gardner
Media Officer – Matt Risby
Social Events Officer – James Curry
Once the formal proceedings of the AGM had concluded we moved on to taste some fantastic food at local Mexican food outlet - The Street Food Chef - where the busy kitchen team even took time out to have pictures taken with the Bladerunners members. Finally the team enjoyed some drinks and shot some pool at The Common Room to blow off some steam after a very productive evening. It was a great turn out and everyone who came had a great time. More social events are planned for the future so keep in touch for details.

Our home field is in the north of Sheffield, situated only 5 minutes off the M1, making commuting easy for people not located in Sheffield itself. Public transport also runs past the main entrance of our ground, directly from Sheffield city centre.
We are currently in the early stages of developing our diamond, having spent the previous decade at a successfully developed field complete with cut outs and permanent pitching mound. So an exciting future lays ahead in the legacy of Sheffield baseball.
