I read the forum regular but don’t post normally (criticised little town allegedly) so got lots of abuse. Anyway what are people’s views of the local leagues at present. I personally think top league ie Chester, south north etc standard is very high however lower levels particularly 2nd XI and junior cricket at all time low. I understand teams like getting Lyons growing there own but to have 2 or 3 under 15 sides when neighbours like burnmoor have none can’t be right I don’t want to critise Lyons as they are putting a lot of effort in and other teams like cls have the same. However how do we share the love and keep teams going or do we accept that in 10 years there will be no junior or 2nd team leagues other than at the top table as that is where it is heading I have lots of other views but will open up for debate.
