I think it's a great idea but  would you be able to fill a   Fixture card  with  friendly matches

Not unless all the other clubs around us did the same thing, no: hence why we're not even going to try.


Playing outside a league does have its advantages - for my T20 team, if an opponent messes us around, doesn't turn up, don't play in the right spirit, we simply don't organise a fixture against them next year.

Whereas for our league team, there are teams in our league who have forfeited 5 of the past 6 fixtures we'd had against them, but we will still be given 2 more fixtures against them next year, which, no doubt, 11 of our guys will give up their weekends for only to find they forfeit again at the last minute.

Yes, you're totally right. FTECB!
