MartinStroud - Copy

Martin Stroud has been elected as a Life Vice President for services to the Club, in particular for development of the snooker section, twice standing as the GMC Chairman, twice acting as Assistant Secretary for nine years in total and multiple contributions in other areas over 29 years of membership.
Martin thanked the Officers and Members of the General Management Committee (present and past). He thanked both Brian Green and John Wilson for their hard work over many years.  He offered special praise to Wendy Armit for her support through out many years as both a friend and member of the Club.   Martin reminded us of those few Club members and characters who are no longer with us, members who we very much miss. Members such as Don Blakey, Jimmy Sharpe, John Lawson, Bas Berry, James Gossip, Mike Siddle, Alan Sayburn, Dave Cross, Tony Hepworth, Brian Heaford and his own father Graham Stroud.  He wished the Club every success in this our Centenary year.


Appointment of


The General Management Committee are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Garry Naylor as the new club steward. Garry will be taking up his duties in early April 2020. He has extensive experience of the licensed trade and we are confident that Garry will prove to be an asset to the Cottingham Memorial club.

Our current steward, Steve Robinson, leaves us on Sunday 22nd March, 2020. The GMC are appreciative of his excellent and diligent service throughout his time with the club. We are sure that all members wish him and Lynn a long and happy retirement.

We have also added a new page called CENTENARY 2020 and this will shortly be updated with historical photographs and documents from our past.

The ground floor snooker rooms have now been renovated. This included floor resurface works, which required all tables to be dismantled. We redecorated the entire area and have created some better storage for two piece cue cases. All cues stored on site must be registered via the Club Steward/Bar Staff. Overall the project has progressed very well and the end result appear to be a very nice looking environment to play snooker.
