On an unrelated topic- I used to love playing cricket at school, (and after school on a local field that is now a housing estate) but this article claims that they don't do so any more. I wonder how true it is? The 'non competitive' bit wouldn't surprise me at all- there are no limits to how daft we can be in the state sector.
ps. Regular readers will no doubt be disappointed in the lack of gluey puns in the Lydia May post, but it is a serious story, so I decided to just stick to the facts.
