No, we are still Research Eltham Collegians CC and our 3rds, 4ths, 5th etc will play there.
I wish you didn't. I reckon I've been there every season for the last few, either on the slow, wet ground dodging roopoo or dodging roopoo and snakes on the ground with a hump in the pitch. Good times....at least the beers are cold though.

I hear you on that😁. I’d hate to see what the water bill is at the College, because it could rain for a week and you could guarantee the sprinklers would be flat out.

Was like playing in 100 percent humidity once the sun came out🥵

Hearing that T20’s will remain in that god awful Tuesday night time slot after some talk over the off season that they would be moved to Thursday’s. Can anyone give me a logical reason as to why they wouldn’t be played on a Thursday night? Just an absolute no brainer for mine.

Tuesday is good, never had an issue with it. would be way worse Thursday night . Teams wouldn't be picked untill the Friday?

Tuesday’s are grim. No one wants to be there as it’s nowhere near the end of the working week. If you played on a Thursday night, the entire vibe would be different given you’re only a day out from the weekend. Clubs would also be able to cash in over the bar.

Name the teams after the game/online? Non issue.

If you care about clubs making money shouldn't it be Tuesday so clubs still make money Tuesday and then again Thursday for selections? I enjoy playing in them Tuesday as it does breaks up the week.

Hey mate you've played all year in the twos but you're now in the threes, finding that out online. Now that's grim

I reckon there is merit in the Thursday fixture. The club can still train in the nets at most grounds without intruding on the match, stay around for a meal and once the game is done, opposition can come up, spend some money and have a meal at another club for a change. Selection to follow.
With regards to finding out where you are playing, it's probably more onus on the coach to make the time to chat during the week to the player if they're in the gun and potentially going to be dropped, well a good coach at least would do that rather than dropping it in selection. I agree it's a missed opportunity to play these games on a Thursday.
