David Mann disappointed

He’s been on South Today tonight (BBC1), putting a brave face on what is obviously a great disappointment. There was also a report on the meeting at the ground this evening of the Hampshire Cricket League, who are discussing significant changes to the organisation of the leagues and the matches. Players have been consulted through the winter but it seems the debate could be lively and the decision close. The Ageas Bowl is certainly the site of the ‘New World’.

Incidentally, the news item suggested the Hampshire League is the oldest League in the world. How can that be? It started in the 1970s didn’t it?

There is nothing wrong with the ground. I still believe the reason we have been over-looked again is access. It’s never been the easiest ground to get in and out of and the lack of a station within reasonable walking distance is also a problem. Maybe, if they had access directly onto the M27, as was originally planned then things might be different.

With regard to the Hampshire League it is often quoted as being the largest league in the world so perhaps that is what they meant to say.

Maybe that’s it. Thanks James
