    They used to play at griff and coton but having played there last year I don't think I would fancy facing any county attack on that track and the place is a dump.

    Last Championship game they played was at Stratford ended before tea on the 2nd day think financially lost loads.

    Played a couple of 50 overs and a 2020 at Rugby school in the last couple of years

    I would imagine 2019 when Edgbaston is out of action for a month when the World Cup is on they may have to revisit out grounds.

    I would like to say it's stuck in the 80's but it's worse than that

    Totally agree. I can also remember some of the matches at Courtaulds and I'm sure also at C&NW on Binley Road (although that might have been 2nd eleven).

    They have definitely had first team matches at C&NW, I remember going. That was probably early 90s at a guess. Tried looking it up and couldn't find anything other than the fact a 4 day Warwick v Worcester 2nd XI game started today at Binley Road.

    I think they played a four day game at Stratford a few years ago but it wasn't to successful either a lot if rain or over quickly

    It lasted 2 days v Hants, Bears won by 10 wickets I think, Warne & KP in the Hants side, I went to the 2nd day.

    Think a couple of years before that game sky televised a championship game from Stratford as well v lancs I think.

    Did Stratford have to raise a lot of cash in sponsorship for extra seating etc

    You must be minted if you gave up your CCFC season ticket this season, too.

    Certainly saved a couple of quid!

    Saying that my dad used to get my junior Bears and Bears membership!

    About to invest in a Cov Rugby 10 match package later this week.

    I am considering retirement next year and I was tempted to get a membership but what id call "real" membership is around £550 a year. It's pretty steep and I'd probably end up not going that often.

    My dear Dad did just that, took a package from work at 61 and became a member at Warwicks. He usually took in 1 day at each home Championship match during the season, plus the Cup games and enjoyed concessionary rates at the Test matches. Also went away to Derby, Northampton and even Glamorgan. This started in the early to mid 90's so there were plenty of trips to Lords too. He could sit anywhere he wanted, including the Pavilion and enjoyed amling round the ground with pint pot in hand. No doubt the membership costs have risen dramatically since then but he reckoned it was good value.

    Edgbaston in the Summer and Highfield Road in the other months, he loved every minute of it. Plus he still had time for the decorating, shopping, etc. Reckon it helped Mum and Dad's sanity during the retirement years.

    That's in corporate isn't it? The regular membership is £550 for 3 years.

    Wouldn't back them chasing anything over 160 this is likely to be near 260!

    I would like to see the medical report on finch they shouldn't allow him a runner for being a fat whacker who can't be bothered to run but with Hannon Dolby bowling you don't need to run much

    You might want to revise that upwards given how they've started!

    Elliott should have bowled his allocation

    OHD (despite a decent last over) shouldn't bowl in the power play overs when the fields up & Colin DG shouldn't have bowled so many!
