Re: Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa

All players must have been eligible to play in the original tie in order to play in a replayed or postponed match; however a player who has been suspended according to the disciplinary procedures under the Rules of The Association may play in a postponed or replayed match after the term of his suspe...

Re: English cricket.

If England turn round the Ashes after this then I think Botham's Summer of 1981 may be eclipsed by Stokes's Summer of 2019, when you take in the WC performances as well, as you can't imagine this England side coming out of the last 2 tests either 1-0 or 2-0 without Stokes getting involved again at s...

Re: English cricket.

Beefy and Ben are so similar in their attitudes. Throw them the ball to get you a wicket, place them anywhere in the field and they'll take a catch that most wouldn't get near to, send them out to bat against bowlers with their tails up and they won't take a backwards step. How long before we can cl...

Re: Blyth statement

I would guess that Blyth have no recourse to us for anything, the contract is surely between Blyth and AA. It sounds as if DFC have done nothing wrong, we've advertised, interviewed and offered the role of manager. Whether we choose to smooth the way for AA by offering Blyth something to cover anyth...

Re: What's next

Re: Relieved we're not getting promoted !

I think the problem is that Promotion comes with an expectation of increased budgets and 'better' players.

Re: Appeal

Are we banned from the play-offs or not able to take promotion if we won the play-offs?

Yes, still used in Scotland.
