It’s delightful that folks are recalling Alan Rayment’s radio interview back in May 2019. Here are a couple of photos of Alan with Kevan (Dave Bracegirdle from Notts in the background) and one with Adi and the Physio during the “injuries” bit!

I hope the Isle of Wight is given a 4 day match next year, the match v Notts was a great success which is why I was disappointed that in 2020 they were only given a one day match v Lancashire.

I agree completely – it was an absolutely wonderful four days. I am however fearful that the plan to play in Winchester might take precedence – we shall have to see.

I don’t mind Winchester college having games too, it looks like a wonderful setting and pavilion as Newport is. Winchester very easy to get to and good transport links.

I think this is difficult – I greatly enjoyed the match at Newport (we went and stayed for a week on the Island and would do so again), but when there are only 7 home Championship games, to move one to the IoW cuts out 1/7th of their membership for those who only go to Championship games. Either a daily commute to the match, or staying over, would be prohibitively expensive for some.
Not sure what the answer is tbh

Good point – I was lucky to get the loan of a mate’s flat for the week in Seaview. I agree with Vern that Winchester is a central and interesting choice too. I don’t mind more spreading out around the outgrounds (away as well as home) if that’s the future. They are usually great fun.

If someone has paid for membership and can’t make it to outgrounds maybe some sort of refund or a free International ticket could be awarded.
