Day out watching cricket Can't Post or Reply Privately

I follow non league football in general and have watched speedway fairly regular, the occasional rugby league game but as a teenager watched league cricket in the Manchester area but since moving to Merseyside in the early 70s I have not seen much cricket although went to one of my local clubs yesterday for a" derby" Sefton Park v Wavertree and there was eventually about a hundred in attendance, they issued a programme/scoresheet 50p and in the clubhouse you could get meals, snacks, teas, drinks (light and heavy), you could sit on benches with backrests in and outside of the pavilion and there was a grassy banking outside the pitch where families were having" picknics", I enjoyed a few hours in the sunshine!

You should try the Bradford League. Programmes, good quality cricket and superb tea-bars. Very highly recommended.

One a very infrequent visit to the town of my birth, at the weekend I watched Darwen v Blackpool in the Northern Premier Cricket League. A few hours well spent.

Admission (including programme) £3.50 (Women, pensioners and children £2.00).

Interesting to read that you can get programmes at club matches in the north, can't imagine that happening down south! (not that I've ever actually attended one.)

There are a number of leagues in the North(not sure about Yorkshire) and Midlands where most top League clubs have professionals which makes the games more interesting and programmes have usually been issued.
Similar to non league football some of the crowds have decreased although I was lucky to witness good ones although the professionals were the standard of Sir Garfield Sobers & Basil D'Oliviera!
