103 Days to the Start of the Cricket Season
« on: January 07, 2013, 02:21:23 PM »

I calling it as 20th April, might be earlier or later for some but looking at less than 100 days for most of us soon. Some sunshine just poked through here and I'm ready to get stuck into nets. Just another 100 days of shopping trips, indoor football, gym sessions, snow, rain, coats and we'll be there. Who's got fixtures sorted? First oppos? New faces? New grounds or clubs?

New club for me this year. Playing at imo the nicest ground in Somerset every other week seems like a damn good season to me! Will probably get bombed to the 3rds fairly early doors and end up playing in a farmers field somewhere but form must come back at some point!

Totally new league for me. Looking forward to the new challenge and a change of scenery really we will be going into North East Premier League Div 1 from next season, with ex Durham players Ash Thorpe & Paul Hindmarsh joining the club for the new season.

Nice, I will hopefully have a couple friendly games over there, the Local brewery uses it as their 'Home' pitch for their fixtures. I've always bowled well there, never scored any runs against very average bowlers!

great stuff, undoubtedly it will be freezing and wet
played a friendly in nottingham last season early april, was a lovely ground, but too wet to cut a wicket so played on astro and outfield was tad long. coldest cricket match iv ever played

First league game on April 27 th , Looking forward to it as it will be my last season for a while . I am a bit worried about the way the weather has been. The constant rain last month has meant that the grounds are saturated to maximum. Even the slightest rain further on will probably ruin wickets. Lets pray for a baking hot weather this season to make up for the matches that were called off last season  :).
