    Fardingham Cockatoos



    Welcome one and all to the Fardingham Cockatoos 20:20 Franchise.

    Loud, obnoxious and colourful; we aim to be the party team for the neutral to rally behind - showing as much interest in socialising and enjoyment as playing the game of cricket.

    Our core values are:

    1. To promote the 'fun' aspect of cricket. Fardingham players will be expected to play fair, and play hard. Any players indulging in dubious cricketing activities (e.g. claiming bump balls as catches) will be dropped for one game.
    2. To develop the relationship between fans and players. Players will be expected to appear for a discussion forum with fans before the game; lasting not longer than half an hour. Players will also be expected to perform 'bar duty' after the game. This will constitute 3 players from that game's match day team being bar men in the local pub for fans and other players alike.

    The Squad so far:

    HT Davis - C'apn. Planning on taking the field wearing an eye-patch and with a real cockatoo on my shoulder; regulations permitting. The cockatoo will be training to perform aerial bombardments on unruly spectators.

    R Dauth - 'Icon' player and apparently livewire fielder. We'll be expecting plenty of him in terms of rounds purchased down the bar.

    T Mamesh - Known as a big hitter, he'll be hoping to rack up the Pounds/Dollars for charity by striking the billboard parrots on the main stands during the home games.

    K Wright - The brains behind the Colts will be expected to provide tidbits of information at pre and post match press conferences and fan-forums.

    D Kearsley - Adding some batting experience to the top order for Fardingham, Kearsley is certain to be a hive of attention for the ladies when he's on bar duty.

    R Malone Jr

    T Weber

    More to come.

    Players will be expected to bring their own gimmick to the table, to add to the Fardingham party.

    BarStar

    Every squad member will be having to perform Bar Duty for the Fardingham Cockatoos throughout the 20:20 Campaign.

    In order to determine the most successful bar man of the year, and thus earn the coveted Cobalt Cockatoo Trophy for Best Barman, squad members are asked to allocate 10 Bar Points to the following categories:

    Pint Pouring:
    Cocktail Shaking:
    Small Talking:
    Bar Cleaning:
    Atmosphere Ambiencing:

    The maximum number of bar points per category is 5. The minimum is 0.

    The success of each post match bar man will then be determined using Bar Simulator BarStar (D).

    The highest scorer will end up with the Cobalt Cockatoo Trophy.

    Pint Pouring: 3
    Cocktail Shaking: 4
    Small Talking: 3
    Bar Cleaning: 0
    Atmosphere Ambiencing: 0

    Announcing: Fardingham's Youth Training Policy

    Fardingham will be looking to introduce some young up-and-comers to the game during the forthcoming 20:20 series, and will be hoping to play a minimum of one uncapped player per match.

    As a result, Fardingham will be embarking on a Youth Recruitment Scheme.

    This should serve as an announcement to young players that YOU can find your first Development League home at Fardingham.

    This should serve as an appeal to players that have been scouted around CWLand, such as Bond21, Phlegm and Athlai (and any other new signings to the Development league)that they will find a welcoming and friendly home at Fardingham.

    You set up a player profile, hopefully get signed to a club and then games are simulated and you see how you go. Just a bit of fun really, but its well organised.

    Sign up here:*Official* Signup Announcements/Introductions

    And then let Mr Mxystpksihadgoljkg (Liam) know you'd like to be assigned to the Fardingham Cockatoos 20:20 team on our Youth Programme.

    Don't think you can change the rules of the CWXI system just to get your own 'Youth Program'.

    Well, two other franchises have seemingly pulled in players of their own choice - Jimmy Nixon and some guy I've never heard of. Its hardly going to be to my advantage to be playing 'uncapped' players, is it? So naff off back to 'Upper Body'

    I approached the board beforehand and underwent extensive negotiations. Not to mention I traded a draft pick for the honour. Neither you or Thomas seem to have gone through the proper avenues.
