With the cricket season delayed until at least the end of May a lot of Glamorgan members are seeking refunds on their memberships. What provision are Glamorgam making to do this with possibly only white ball cricket on offer?
I have watched the CEO's statement and it appears to me that he is looking for the ECB to bail them out yet again! Why can't the company stand on its own two feet like many other businesses to keep the club's afloat.Players and coaches and employees could go on unpaid leave until such time that they can return. This is the measures other companies have had to face?

I do have some sympathy for them on this occasion. Nobody could have expected anything like this to happen when they were giving players contracts for next season. There is a good chance there will be no season at all which I'm sure all counties will struggle to cope with. The only good thing would be no complications with titles, promotions and relegations if the season doesn't even start.

Why should players, coaches and employees go on unpaid leave? They are hardly millionaires...

Of course Glamorgan will need the ECB and the government to assist them at this time. At a time like this people shouldn't be trying to stick the knife in.

The vast majority of the country are not millionaires and do not have a governing body to fall back on. They can apply for universal credit like many other people have to and learn to live in the real world. I know it's hard for everyone but self employed people do not get paid if they are not working and I know plenty of employed people who have been laid off because ther is no money. Glamorgan are no different.

They are not self-employed!

As predicted the ECB are prepared to bail out Glamorgan and it will be interesting to see who benefits from this windfall. Will it be the lowest of the low or the highest of the high? In business terms Glamorgan cannot run a business and take away ECB and Sport Wales money would barely survive on £330k membership revenue. Local businesses do not come near as they know the position and if it was not for the "Sugar Daddy" that is the ECB the county would not survive. :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:

The season starts on Sunday with Kent v Sussex live on thecricketer.com you tube channel live @ 5pm. Its the 5 overs a side Quarantine Cup, 11 counties in 2 groups, s-fs & final. Ok its a video game with the sides represented by a member of their playing squad, and there will be commentary. Glamorgan in Kent's group and they meet on 26th April I think.
PS Have checked it is actually 29th April

It's amazing what you will watch given the absence of any other sport. Will be getting behind Roman Walker as he represents Glamorgan.
