What is the point of Northants? I've just looked at the team they've put out on the park today... pretty much a minor counties side. Complete shite.

He can't even get into the Luton 1st XI in the Herts League. Getting around 1/50 on average each week.

A couple of years ago, he turned up at a game and he was so mentally shot, he didn't even know what team he was playing for.

You really don't know very much, do you?

Surrey have attempted on numerous occasions to buy the ground but been turned down each time by The Duchy.

Not quite sure you'd want more money put in a very rich man's pocket than spent on sport, but perhaps that's just the kind of person you are.

All you do is cry. Yorkshire actually own Headingley while Surrey own jack.

Yep, that's fair enough.

Cricket is a bit bollocksed really as there's such a gap and relatively few countries that play.

Maybe we should have a Home International tournament.

They must be in the shit if they're not playing Philander AND they have to jettison Overton.

At this rate Surrey, Lancs and maybe Notts will be the only counties who can afford to pay the whole salary cap.

Got a email from Hampshire Cricket saying that there would be no cricket at the Rose Bowl this season. The Mickey Mouse Cup home games will be played at Arundel.

Good news is that all 2020 Members' subs will be treated as applications for 2021 (unless you want a refund).
