    Only Chris could omit Ian Bell from an England side for 2007...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Explain how. Particularly in a rural area. You cannot go around turning Village 1st XI sides into Club fifth grade teams.

    Some of the feeding system isn't right. There are village clubs that aren't in any leagues and only play friendlies on a sunday that take away players that could be playing in those leagues. Some sort of parent club idea with ties all the way down the league system could help the progression of young English players.

    The majority of people who play Sunday cricket for village-only sides play Saturday league cricket too - I can't believe for a second that anyone doesn't play league cricket is being stopped from it.

    If the village only plays the friendlies though what would be the incentive for someone to pay two sets of membership fees in order to be able to play on a saturday?

    My club in the last couple of years has started a pay by match membership fee system, and in that case it would be possible to switch between teams.
    But before that system came about you had to pay £40-50 at the start of the season, and if you had to do that between two clubs not knowing exactly how much you will actually play then you're more than likely going to limit yourself in some way.

    Mickleton CC may as well not exist. Plays outside the village by a mile on a ground which is the football pitch in winter, has a pretty big pylon at a long mid-off position and has been stuck in the 7th division of the Cotswold Hills League. They should take their 'squad' and go 4 miles up the road to Chipping Campden CC. Financially this would make more sense in the long-term too.

    I am well aware that this probably wouldn't be the case if generalised.

    Lowest division in the region. My Club 1sts are in the Premier and the Seconds are in the Second division having just been promoted (season before they were relegated from the Second).
