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"
