A sorry Surrey Tale

Some of you know Phil Catchpole a Hampshire fan, but primarily a fair minded supporter of County Cricket. He was our Surrey Outcast match reporter. This written to me live from Radlett watching our 2's explaining his difficulties renewing his membership at Surrey. If anyone has any comments,but more importantly advice on any contacts there ( a Fletch equivalent) who can help resolve this matter.
Prior to last Christmas I got a letter from Surrey CCC regarding renewing membership 2017. This was sent to me where I live. Had a 2nd letter in February at the same address about Oval test match tickets. Start of the season and still living at the same address i was still without the membership card. Popped over to The Kia Oval and asked the Surrey chap on reception about my membership. He said we don't have your home address. Gave him the detais (which they have) and was told it would be with me in 6 days. No membership card arrived. Went to the ground and this time saw a lady on reception who said it takes 10 days. A week later I went to the Oval for Warwickshire day 2. Saw the same lady who told me where I live which was why I went and she said I should have had it. Went back next week saw same lady who was of no help. Finally went back during Lancashire game was told its on its way. (KENT 2NDS 12/3) Once again saw the same lady who checked where i live and shrugged her shoulders. Told her this was unacceptable and decided to go to a pub rather than watch Alec's army. Was told to bring last years membership card as proof of my allegiance to the Oval cause. Tore up free admission ticket and found rather pleasant pub in area. At least if I forget where I live I can ring the Oval. Just can't get into matches. Shambolic Sorry CCC. GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK. You know where i live
I'm only here for the tele
