Wherever we play  we need  to feel welcomed and part of the setup  and if  the club has nice facilities it's a bonus  but i still  see  far to many  clubs run by  club  Cliques  both on and oFf the field also seen to many guys treated as if they are only in the team to make up the numbers  clubs take there money  bat them at 11 and stick them  all afternoon on the boundary

Ah the old TFC. Many 'big' clubs do that to players. Competitive cricket and all that BS

Aren't you part of the first team of a so called big club that wanted to send colts to play top of the league?

One is a big club, 4 league sides, in the West of england premier league div 3, all the youth teams, very posh, nice setup at their own ground etc with all the obvious advantages that come with that kind of thing, plus my other half plays for their ladies side. Disadvantages - whilst I'd like the challenge of a higher level (I've mostly played div 2/3 of the bristol league the last few years), realistically I wouldn't be a regular in the first team (if I can get in it of course!), so I'd possibly be in their 2s, who play a decent standard but don't seem to be much of a side (leagues got rearranged last year and they've clearly gone in too high), with a big variation of players each week. Need to have a chat with the club and see where they think I'd fit in tbh.

Other club is a two team affair so much smaller, div 5 of the local leagues. Lovely ground, bit closer to me too. Very nice bunch from early impressions and having played against them before in friendlies etc, getting on very well with them at nets/indoor games. From what I've seen I think I'd be one of the better players at the club, but not hugely so. The lad who invited me along reckons I'd bat top 4 and possibly open the bowling too so that's a definite advantage! Disadvantages - a little lower in the leagues (not hugely fussed by this, especially as they seem a te#? on the up), they don't play Sundays/midweek so I'd need a second club, although that could be sorted by playing Sundays for the other side. Possibly annoy the missus as she thought I was going to her club ha.

So I'm torn! Attracted by the prospect of being one of the key players at the smaller club, which I know brings out the best in my cricket. Also enjoying training with players much better than I am at the bigger club, I've been netting with their 1s which has been good, 2s net looks a bit disappointing. Leaning towards the smaller side at present, but we shall see, it's difficult!
i know the bigger club but Who are the smaller club @edge

I am more concerned about how you will get your helmet on over your jewel-covered crown!  ;)

Question... Do I turn up at my first net for new club with a new XP80 and risk breaking it or go with my trusty Hattori/Purist and play it safe??

Until you know how they bowl and what balls they use in the nets, play it safe!!

That's why I have a 22.50 MSR in the bag. At the end of the day, it may not come off the same but if you have good technique that will always be appreciated.

Take the XP80 to show off, and use one of your older bats to find out the quality of balls and bowling

Yesterday was my first proper net with Hosk CC (Watlington CC).  After being cleaned up second ball, I knuckled down and batted alright (room for improvement).  Really enjoyed the net.

Good to hear after your net with the other lot.
