Weren't they a new club as it was, obviously a few 'strong' personalities involved I would guess.

No - there is Ketton Sports Cricket Club and then there are 3 or 4 other blokes who own the roller and the urn.

Haha!

Apparently the club has split in two... A competitive side (Would be ECB Prem next season I believe) and a Not as-Competitive Side... basically the firsts and seconds don't agree so they are now two separate clubs

Played for a club that  tried that split into to different teams first and seconds with different names worked well until the firsts wanted the seconds  players and the seconds refused to play for the firsts it led  to Both teams folding

I think it would be good to hear from jake on the subject before we speculate too much.

No Nick  - let's wildly speculate.

Was a strict haircut order issued to the First XI, which provoked a mass walkout and tossing of manes?

Did someone suggest "perhaps a little less pink?" - which prompted gasps of horror and a fit of pique?

Perhaps outsourcing teas to Eaton Socon caused a storm in a teacup?

Outsourcing teas to Eaton Socan would have caused a surge in membership applications!!

Best teas in East Anglia #beige
