This is traditionally the time when we look to next week’s team sheet and issue a rallying call for numbers, but for the first time since (checks Wisden) August 1749 we have a selection headache with 13 Blades listed as available. This is great news, THANK YOU ALL!
This may mean that one or two need to stand down on the day but i would urge you, if you are available PLEASE still come along. It is always possible / likely that people get stuck at work or in traffic and we may need everyone on board to field an 11. And if you don’t get to play, support is always welcome. You might even enjoy it – the last two games have been nailbiters. Or if you fancy a thankless task that is hugely valuable but gets little credit, we could always use another umpire or scorer…
Thanks for your support guys. See you all next Wednesday. And don’t forget to sign up for the rest of the season if you haven’t already
