That's the point really isn't it. The commitment on a Sunday to either Cup competition has to be there from the start from all the players because playing both days all season (or every other at least) is a big ask these days for a lot of people and if you put a weak side out in these cups you will most likely get beaten.

Big clubs pay remember.. so turning up is mandatory

Add that to the bigger clubs will have a few others trying to make a name etc. Its a big ask for a normal club but then I wouldnt expect a normal club to enter the main comp and certainly not both. Village cup potentially if you qualify as turning up with a full 1xi gives you a sniff of getting far

Village cup has some big teams in too. No idea if they actually take it seriously or not but they will be floating about

think if you're a village and a high level club, you can enter your 2nd/3rd team - aston rowant might do this as their seconds/thirds will be in the Cherwell League? divisions, i think Frocester in the WEPL do this, the 1st team play in the National Club comp and the 2nds/3rds players in the village - i may be very wrong about this!!!

Great effort! One game from Lords  :)

As mentioned above - the standard or league a club plays in has no bearing on eligibility for the village cup

We entered for a 2nd year, had a good day out last year with an away day at Streethouses but lost (we expected to but put up a good fight)

This year got a home draw against a Bradford league side, albeit 4 division so we fancy our chances, was hoping for another away day but hopefully if we win we may draw an away fixture.

Always a good way to start the season, no pressure as we never quite sure what to expect from opposition

Clubs in an ECB premier division can enter the village cup but players who have played premier division games in the current or  previous season can't play in it.

This changed a couple of years ago along with the definition of a 'village' to open it up to more clubs.
It's a great comp if you can play in it.
