I've heard they've got a player on the payroll for in excess of 35k a season, but they legally employ them under a 'Director of Cricket' title so it's all fair regulation wise. Apparently as part of the deal he also gets use of the club facilities FOC for private coaching on the side.

Mental money, but then Bath can afford it so why not I suppose!
That's Muchall who came from Frocester, does a lot of the coaching and planning for them. Not saying it justifies 35k but I wouldn't say no!!

I am batting and the wicket keeper is up to the stumps the ball is turning and i had left a couple the bowler runs in and i hear the wicketkeeper say : get your feet moving you F***ing c*** so I spin round and say dont speak to me like that and go away (well somthing like that ) the wicket keeper   gives me a look and said He was talking to himself.

Not sure if it is village but I felt pretty damn stupid lending a nice bat to someone who hadn't played before... only for them to give the ball a nice solid whack... with the wrong side of the bat leaving a sizeable divot. Doh!

That's pretty much the definition of village.  :D

As a junior playing for the senior side - at tea asked to roll the pitch and repaint the crease lines with the other junior.

Not thinking we did the paint first then rolled....ending with white lines evenly placed up the length of the wicket.

I didn't live that down although the opening bowler liked the line on a length he could aim for.

yesterday, one of our fielders - not noted for his athleticism - pulls off a brilliant diving stop and midwicket.

Emboldened by the applause, he stands up and pings it back at the keeper.  Who was not looking at all, and after narrowly avoiding decapitation, watches in shock as the ball flies to the boundary!

Was he "Stealing" yards?...

I'd have loved to have seen that. "Not now officer, I'm bowling first change"

i got drafted into our first team a couple of weeks back for midweek 15 over cup comp. We batted first then went out to field - after about 8 overs we were no balled for falling foul of fielding restrictions, much arguments ensured as our captain swore blind we had the right numbers in the right places, it was at this point he realised we only had 10 men. It had taken 8 overs for us to even realise it!

I recently played in a game in which a rather elderly gentleman came out to bat without pads...
In 30 years of cricket I'd never seen this before.

Mate of mine once went out to bat with 3 balls left with no pads on as he'd assumed he wouldn't be needed, bowler was getting it down at reasonable speed too. Couldn't believe it for the life of me when every ball to him was well outside off!

Playing away last week, our skipper went to toss up, and came back in saying he had lost and they put us in to bat. No surprise as the wicket isnt great and looked particularly rough after the weeks weather.
Top order pad up and head out the changing room. We head out a minute later to be greeted with the opposition padded up as well!
Not sure what had happened, but it transpires they wanted to bat but our skipper either misheard or was so sure they would want to field he assumed.
Either way it worked out pretty well. Bowled them out for 68 (I picked up a nice 5 for 15) and we knocked them off for full points!
