Well we've got a bye week thanks to a team dropping out the league prior to the season starting - couldn't have landed on a better day! Away on holiday next week so a few weeks break for me (probably a good thing with a frayed lateral and broken thumb, good old cricket...).

Theres a game in Leicestershire starting at 6am in order to be done by the time the pub opens to secure a prime spot for the game....

Any other summer and there would be far too much dew and morning moisture to even consider such an early start.

Seriously? That is actually amazing

We've managed to rearrange ours to the second week in September.

Out of our probable 11, at least 9 of us would say football was our first sport and we've all been going to the pub together for England's games. The oppo also have 3/4 massive footie fans and several more wanted the game off so it was a simple decision all round. Had the game been on i'd have dropped out!

A couple of other local teams have decided to do 10am games and 30 overs. But personally i want to be in the pub for 12-ish with the lads, so unless it was a game finished before mid-day, i wouldn't have played either!

Our league is only a small league and on the whole a Saturday only league and games rarely stretch to a full two 40 over innings. So our options were an earlier start of 10am (from 1.30pm) or move to the Sunday. I was due to work 9-1 and wouldve happily played cricket as I dont get to play much. Both of those alternatives though mean I cant play at all as Im working all day Sunday. Another league localish to me NEPL have straight batted any suggestions of change. Theyve said theyre a cricket league simples, there will be no moving games for the football.

Normal start for us despite the oppo wanting to rearrange.
Kudos to my neighbour. He captains a forth team, his seconds postponed but he refused to strengthen his side with those second teamers who wanted to play cricket.

Amazed he had the option. In the TVL, you have to fulfill fixtures in order - so if you only have eleven and they are all third reamers, they have to play the ones fixture.

we're starting an hour and a half early (12) playing full 45 overs and no extended tea but the game will be on in the club house,

been a compromise between the two clubs

my personal opinion is you should play as normal, if teams cant get 11 then they forfeit its not the fault of the leagie or any side who can get 11 that theyre players have made themselves unavailable, in 2010 i played a sunday league game when england lost to germany and was one of the most thrilling games of cricket ive played in

i know football is the biggest sport in the country but if we dont stop to watch england in the quarters/semis/finals of cricket competitions so why for football

although with this weather just get the game on its a long old winter!!!!

Your captain has been through some sh!t the last 48 hours sorting this!!

Right now we've got 10 players and that's including one of the dad's that we've roped in despite the fact that he's got a knee replacement not too long ago.

If anybody cries off at 8am I'm going to slap someone

I dont know why but this made me chuckle and will probably be the same sentiment from every captain in the country

Managed to get 3 sides out, opposition captain in one of the sides not being flexible. The other 2 have agreed 11am starts. Probably end up being 11:30 with our lot turning up late

Our league gave 2nd XI, 3rd XI and 4thXI divisions several options for early starts and late finishes to incorporate a tea break long enough to get the game in. Then loads of 1st XIs complained so the league allowed us to have an extended tea too so long as all parties agreed. We approached our oppos captain who refused an early start as their 3rd XI had poor availability ?????
We are therefore going to miss the football.
