As well as having our presentation evening on the 22nd, the cricket committee would like to run our version of the big bash during the day.
The Huge Hit!
This would be an IPL style auction to purchase PSL players for one of 4 St Lawrence Franchises for a 10/10 competition. This could either be some dramatic bidding process or player rating process or just simply a playground like take turns to pick a player. All club players, senior and junior as well as potential ringers can be registered for purchase.
2 semi finals and final throughout day is the suggested format, however we need as many players as possible to sign up!
We will have a captain for each side plus an owner.
Each Franchise Can be run/owned by some of LS28’s most ruthless Megalomaniacs. It is these men along with their trusted captain’s who will each assemble a team of warriors on the morning of September 22nd. These 4 teams will then do battle and the winner will open Julie’s cash Box
We already have suggestions for the names for the 4 franchises along with potentail owners.
Tofts Road Tsunami Surfers potential owner Eddie Bennett
With close links to the Queens Park Cossacks, this group of savages has been undergoing intense military training under the guise of Second World War veteran Stan Waterhouse. Eddie’s appetite for all things fluorescent means the Tsunami Surfers are guaranteed to provide fireworks and illuminate the competition.
Uppermore Uzi Assasins potential owner Tim Vickers / Keith Smith
These guys shoot first and ask questions later. Brought up on diet of bread, they have plenty of carbs to explode on this massive stage. A splinter group formed from the infamous Alexandra Road Orangutan Aggravators, this team certainly has pedigree. Each of the Franchise owners has all eaten, drunk and spoke for England
Grove Road Gargantuans Potential owner Bernie Scott
The class act of the tournament. With a motto of swill by mouth, the Gargantuans have an insatiable appetite for Carling. Many people’s favorites to lead on and off the field, the GRG’s as they’re affectionately known anywhere North of Piccolos, will provide a stern test to anyone who dares walk on their manor.
Chapeltown Crazyheads The Priestley/Gott/Walsh Syndicate
With the exact funding to this Southern Franchise unknown. The Crazyheads are fronted by 3 of South Parade’s most astute businessmen after winning a power struggle with Mick Stein and Gerald Illingworth. This is a tough patch to control with the numerous takeaway and brewing magnates in the area, so needless to say this group of donner meat feed hoodlums will be dangerous opponents. Celebrity fans of the team are Doug Padgett, George Michael and Heather from M People.
We hope to have a great cricket day for all the family with a the club presentation evening held afterwards.
