Went to my first ever professional cricket match Sunday to see Essex V Summerset, match was really boring and the crowd were so so quite.

What was interesting was the interval, all the crowd went on to the pitch, adults with their beers and fags looking at the wicket and watching the ground staff while all around families were playing cricket having been allowed in and on the pitch with real wooden bats(can you imagine being allowed in our ground with bats) , and chairs for stumps. For 15 minutes there must have been 30 matches going on.

So my thought was wouldn’t it be good if we could do this on our pitch, dads and kids on the pitch at half time with a ball and jumpers for goal posts. Or just to walk-on the pitch to stretch your legs. Or we could copy polo and at the interval we could go on the pitch and tread the divots down.

But as we cant even go on the pitch at the end of the season I suppose it is a no no shame
