Where do you play?
« on: March 19, 2018, 08:40:59 PM »

Following on from @Northern monkey on Facebook earlier this evening. I don't know if this has been done before, but I'd be really interested to know where Forumites play, and what your ground looks like (on a good day I mean, not buried under 6 inches of snow!). This photo is where I play, Long Melford CC, in Suffolk.

Not the best of pictures but our big Aussie with his first visit to Hartlepool Power Station CC a couple of years ago, faced with a typical northern spring day! You can just about see the power station in the background. Surely one of the more unusual settings!

Northern, Edge - looking lovely. Scott mate, mate, mate, there's nothing wrong with a ground that only a mother could love. :) Awesome photo, how long did the Big Aussie stick around?

Just by chance we just had this pulled together to accompany some sponsorship letters

Kilve is on the coast in West Somerset (on the way to Minehead)

Stayed about a full season then, and about 12 weeks last season. Top bloke and helped a few of the lads out a lot, definite advocate of an overseas man at the club.

Nice one Kez, lovely. Dunmow in Essex? Our 1s play you in Two Counties sometimes I think.

Nice, nice, but you lot would struggle to adapt at Risby. Changing in the back of a Ford Transit.  :)

Oh don't worry, i grew up playing in Lancashire, horrible dark changing rooms which flooded, barely enough room to fit 2 people in let alone 11.  I think a few of the Aussie's would struggle though!

Nice pictures, guys!

When I visit England, can I play with your club? :)
