Geneva Sri Lankan Cricket Club were unanimoulsy accepted as affiliate members of Cricket Switzerland at the Extraordinary General Meeting that took place in Berne on Saturday 18th April.
Geneva Sri Lankan Cricket Club (GESLCC) were also granted special dispensation to participate in the Mr Pickwick Cricket Twenty20 competition this coming season.
Geneva Sri Lankan Cricket Club join the ranks of Cricket Switzerland, increasing Cricket Switzerland's membership to 20 clubs and 2 affiliated organisations.
In his address to the Cricket Switzerland members in attendance, Mr. Sunil Perera, Manager of GESLCC, looked forward to fresh challenge and greater competition that membership of the larger
Cricket Switzerland organisation now presented. Although stressing GESLCC's switch from the smaller league was totally amicable, Mr. Perera now shared the belief that Cricket
Switzerland's positive approach to the growth of cricket in Switzerland longer term (particularly at junior levels), presented not only the greatest opportunity for the development of cricket
across Switzerland as a whole, but also, critically, was the only viable option for full unification.
Other matters agreed at the EGM were the adoption of the amended German version of the constitution and Mr Chris Lodge was appointed as the second auditor.
