I just said there weren't many clubs with bars in the county - definitely less than 1 in 10 have bars. I wasn't talking about neighbouring counties.

Its real enough to have its own cricket board and cricket league. https://huntsccl.play-cricket.com/

I've played for 5 years in the Hunts & Cambs leagues. I'd say at the very least 1/3rd of the clubs i've played at have a bar and i don't play at a decent standard by any means.

Feel free to name the Cambs ones.

Histon, Foxton, Cambridge Granta, Cambridge NCI, Burghley Park are the only clubs I can think of without a bar.

I'm sure there is plenty lower down the pyramid in the CCA divisions, but your post stating basically no-one in Cambs has a bar is not correct based on my experience.

Nassington play/played in the Cambs league and have a bar, but I guess they don't count because the village is in Northants.... ?

The Hunts league is part of the same pyramid, it feeds into the Cambs & Hunts Premier league, which in turn feeds into the ECB East Anglian Premier League.

You were the one who wanted to make it solely about the county itself, rather than a league. If we are talking politics/geography then Hunts is a district of Cambridgeshire.

As I've already said 3 times, I'm talking about within Cambs, not Hunts.

fair enough. I guess this just demonstrates that you haven't played at, like, 95% of the grounds in Cambs.

And as has been pointed out to you, Huntingdonshire is a district within the county of Cambridgeshire. I live in the district of Huntingdonshire and my town is the biggest within the county of Cambridgeshire.

Occasionally you might find it useful to put your ego aside and admit you are wrong, but judging by your constant refusal to thus far, it's probably unlikely.

If we are talking politics/geography then Hunts is a district of Cambridgeshire.

Cricket uses the traditional pre-1974 county structure, hence the existence of Middlesex.

In cricketing terms, Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire are separate counties with separate boards, separate leagues, separate minor counties sides and separate county age group programmes. They're separate.

I have no idea what the situation is like in Hunts as I've never played there. I do know that of the ~120 or so clubs in Cambridgeshire, less than 10% have bars. So far people have thought of 5, I doubt anyone is going to come up with 8+ more.

See my other post, thanks. I was, and am, talking about the cricketing county of Cambridgeshire, which follows the traditional county boundary, not the upper tier local authority instituted in 1974.

So other than myself as the skipper, who can go in and get kit etc out, no-one is allowed in the pavilion other than to use the toilet. Its one in one out with hand sanitiser before and after.

We don't have a bar, I can think of only one club in the whole county that do. We have around 120 clubs, I've played at around half of them. Maybe some of the others do? It seems unlikely.

You've said 'the county'

As I've already said 3 times, I'm talking about within Cambs, not Hunts.

You've clarified that by saying 'Cambs not Hunts' - and also dismissed the idea of leagues that have other clubs as well as Cambs clubs in them, or non Cambs clubs who play in Cambs leagues. So we must definitely be solely talking about Cambridgeshire as a county here, not as a league.

But, Hunts is a district of Cambs:

Quote
The county is now divided between Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council, which, since 1998, forms a separate unitary authority. In the county there are five district councils, Cambridge City Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council, Fenland District Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council.[4]

So what you actually mean is the clubs who are based in Cambridge City, East Cambs, South Cambs and Fenland, who also play in the lower levels of the Cambs & Hunts Premier League pyramid; the Cambs Cricket Association commonly known as the CCA league.
In this case I would agree. Most single team small village clubs in those areas probably don't have a bar. Many will be village greens adjacent to the pub, or recreation grounds.

To extrapolate this and say basically no club in the entire county has a bar is nonsense.

A high proportion of players to represent 'the cricketing county of cambridgeshire' at minor counties level come from Hunts based clubs.

hunts dont have a minor counties side, they play friendlies.

Cmbs and Hunts are not separate, as mentioned previously. the top 3 divisions in the pyramid before you get to ECB premier league level are called 'The Cambs & Hunts Premier League' and have been commonly known as 'the cambs league' for as long as I've been playing. The CCA and Hunts leagues feed into the Cambs & Hunts Premier League.

Does Huntingdonshire have a separate cricket board, or does it not?

The fact that neighbouring counties merge leagues at high levels is irrelevant. Does the existence of two counties league mean that Suffolk and Essex are the same county?

Our bar/pavilion is not open to away players or the public. Committee members are allowed in for their respective duties and the bar is open with ordering at the front door via contactless payment and drinks being brought to the customer. We are fortunate enough to have plenty of outdoor seating around the pavilion so this was the favoured spot of most drinkers even pre corona.

Changing rooms are not open for either team although I must confess that when the evening has got late a few of the lads have taken showers one at a time in the homes.

We have one External toilet open on match days for players and officials with soap and sanitizer everywhere.

Every club in our league has a bar and I can think of perhaps 8 at most Ive played at in the county in my 21 years mens cricket that dont have a bar. Clown!
