Reminder that it's one down, three up in the Championship this season, establishing a 10-team CC1 for 2020.

Thanks for a cheerful and positive prelude to whet the appetite for another great season.

I noted the wording at the head of the Messages page:

Many thanks to the Mighty Alexander Davidson for the montage. Somerset will be looking once more for the chance to become Champions of the CC1 in ...

and I thought how good it would be to see a similar paragraph in twelve months from now, with just a tiny tweak to the word order:

It hss been there for a couple of seasons LoL so I'd be very happy to change it for that next year. Having re-read what I wrote now I'm not sure if your 'positive' comment was tongue in cheek or not. The mood walks a fine line between excitement and something else not so happy!

I put it down to being an old Economist who follows too much news about Donald J.

"The 50 over competition has been downgraded..." in a year England may be World Cup champions. You couldn't make that up Grockle

I think I prefer concise descriptions of the 100 and I have a few pithy descriptions of my own.

Ah, pithy with a 'th'.

The whole concept is pith poor.

Club announcing free entry for NHS employees on day 2 (Saturday) of the Kent game.

So there should be plenty of assistance for anyone else who suffers being out in the cold all day

Well, I think it is a very fine gesture by the Club to acknowledge the hard work, professionalism and dedication of our wonderful NHS - an organisation which I will fight to the last to defend.

I saw stuff on Facebook yesterday about SCCC's link-up with the NHS - there's an obvious Joverton gag there from which I shall refrain...

Oh, come on Paul - don't be a spoilsport.
