I can't keep up with all these changes. Our last chance for glory this year. What sort of team will we be putting out? Then do we play some more County games in a meaningless league ?
Great weather forecast next week. No games at the Oval though.:D

Put it this way - based on what Alec said at the Forum today & allowing for The absence of England players & The Hundred, you might get a gameÖ.

Can't wait for that then:( What did it mean when it said on our membership we had access to the 100 games at the Oval?

Exactly that. Members can attend any The Hundred games at the Oval - itís included in the Membership. I assume this excludes those who Ďjustí have T20 Membership. Iím not sure of the ticket logistics (whether you need to reserve a ticket in advance or just show your card on the day). Iím not going to bother out of principle but it is free cricketÖ.

I was not going to bother but I have seen so little cricket this year I might. I looked on the 100 site and it said sold out for the first game so I think that you probably would have had to book in advance. No info on our site.
Yes it will exclude t20 and just County game membership.

The only reference I've seen on the Hundred was in the email from Surrey on Friday, tucked away in text only at the end, that Surrey members:

Quote:

"Reminder for Members on The Hundred

Surrey and England, County and Pride of Lions Members have The Hundred included in their Membership and can access these fixtures by showing their Membership Card on arrival at the ground and sitting in the following Members' areas: Micky Stewart Members' Pavilion, Peter May Garden and Laker Balcony.

Members with The Hundred included in their Membership package, who want to secure tickets outside of Members' areas, with non-Members, should click here and insert '21SUR' followed by your Membership Number into the access code box. This will allow Members to sit with non-Members around the ground."

All well and good, but you can't do bookings linking up with multiple Surrey memberships, but if you are wanting to book three tickets for the hundred, with, say two Surrey members and one or more non-member general ticket sitting together, can't see a way of doing that, only one Surrey member ticket at a time, plus paid for tickets. All very confusing! (I'm 35, work in digital and this is all too confusing/shouty for me!) My mate and I linked our membership on the Surrey pages, so we can sit/book tickets together, can't seem to do that for the Hundred.

I'm not really that fussed about the Hundred, but was planning on going to a couple out of curiosity more than anything, one each of the men and women, but not sure if there will be two of us (in which case, turn up and sit in the member areas), or three or more, which requires a bit of planning. More likely to go to the Surrey cup games, if I can though. Surrey (and other counties) will be very poor in the RL Cup! Take your boots!

ANDYEAGLE 13-07-2021 12:42 PM

Have not seen that. So next week I can just turn up and seat in the pavilion? I may go tomorrow so I will find out for sure. The first game is sold out according to the 100 ticket site. Weather is great next week so might be worth a visit. No I am not a supporter of the 100 but it is a night out.

Palace Dan 13-07-2021 12:49 PM

Hampshire giving it a go for promotion v Glos

Surrey made a healthy start too

Catford Eagle 13-07-2021 01:08 PM

Hang on, Stoneman's approaching 25. Does he get on the honours board?

Yes, I think that’s true - as it would normally be for a Surrey T20.

I agree with you. I had this problem recently where I couldn’t book tickets for me & a mate (both Members) & my non-Member son. Can’t remember which game/format it was but it did seem nonsensical.

Webb 13-07-2021 02:21 PM

As mentioned a page or so back, was trying similar for the County game at the moment for the sunday play. Part of the reason it was just the two of us (both members) in the end, was that it was such a faff trying to work out if a guest pass could be used or not, rather than just buying a general ticket for £15 in advance on the gate and then quietly coming to sit with us, and how the logistics worked with the 2 already allocated member seats confirmed a few weeks prior. Friend decided not to bother in the end and went elsewhere - missed revenue for the club from beer and food, plus potentially a new member next year frustrated at the first point of contact. Can't wait for these restrictions to be done, as I'm sure the club. Will be so much easier just being able to rock up.

I get it's tricky logistics wise during covid and with everything changing so often, but it's not very good. Still no reply from the club from my email sent on Friday asking, plus calls not answered (Saturday), in addition to email sent yesterday specifically about the Hundred issue mentioned above I'm still in the dark about, trying to organise a group of friends but can't give them an answer.

The member section of the website is woeful, really awful considering our relative resources (well, until recently)

As a 'new' member this year (well, last year), it would have been nice to have a new member induction process or similar, rather than just a brochure. Sat loads in the OCS stand for internationals, t20s and county games in the past, but don't really know my way around the pavilion, etc.

ANDYEAGLE 13-07-2021 03:27 PM

Amla will need another long stint at the crease if Surrey can avoid defeat. Smith next then not a lot. Still 150 odd to avoid follow on.

Rob Agates 14-07-2021 01:12 PM

Just seen that Hampshire's total of 486-7 yesterday included 81 extras, including 48 byes and 20 no-balls. Talk about making life difficult for yourselves.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 14-07-2021 01:46 PM

What's Kents problem this year have not won a game yet.

Prince Phillip 14-07-2021 02:52 PM

Surrey only bowling spin so far and Somerset collapsing to 66-8 in their second dig, leading by 255.
Although with the runs unlikely to be chased down in less than two sessions, Surrey could be doing the cricketing equivalent of scoring too early.

Tomo 14-07-2021 04:10 PM

Farcical scenes at Yorkshire yesterday and this morning.

Originally the game was scheduled at Scarborough.
Was moved to Headingly to accommodate more people and be Covid secure.
Lancs post a solid score on day 1.
Day 2 rained off.
Day 3 Play didn't start till gone midday despite having lovely weather. After 25 overs, Dom Leach crashed into a concrete block when fielding a ball, and badly injured his leg. Were told it would take 2 hours for an Ambulance to get there so the physio had to drive him to the hospital. Play was then suspended.
Day 4. Match suspended because the bowlers run up was considered unsafe before play started.

Son of Coveta 14-07-2021 05:05 PM

Rumors going round that they are cancelling the 50 over competition this year to accommodate "The Hundred ". I guess because there are not enough players to play in both with all of the withdrawals.
Just cancel The Hundred ! It was a a load of bollox anyway but now nobody big is going to play in it it's hardly going to pull in the crowds and enthusiasm they had hoped for. I for one have zero interest in this and would much rather watch the counties third elevens in the 50 over competition which would bring valuable experience for many young cricketers who don't get a game and we might even uncover a couple of gems.
