Taunton's another pretty poor ground.
Yes, I agree, that end is a bit of a mess, that's what they want to redevelop.

I think you're missing the point about these grounds though, they're not supposed to be the MCG, they have a certain charm that a lot of people love.

At Hove, I can take my dog in and my kids can play on the grass around the benches and deckchairs, you can't do that in a stadium-type ground.
I can even park 20 yards from the boundary....
(and watch the best team in the country....)

Our very own Northlands Road was another ground similar to Hove and Taunton. Can't say I particuarly miss it...

Only small ground that I've liked is actually an outground. Went to Cheltenham a couple of years ago for two days and thought it was great...

Cheltenham is indeed great!

As this is a Sussex thread, I'd better say that I went to Arundel for the first time last year and thought it was very pleasant.

We're playing Sussex at Arundel this year, might pop down for that.

I played at Arundel once, lovely ground. According to the Sussex message board Durham are playing at Horsham this summer which is good news after they decided not to let Murali loose on it for Lancs.

Ollie Rayner is still there but I think Tom Smith will overtake him in the bowling stakes within a year or two. Mark Davis is assistant coach I think so doesn't play

Arundel is my local ground and I think it would be hard to find a more lovely rural setting for a game of cricket. But I have to say, even as a Hampshire fan, I really like Hove too. It is a heath robinson sort of place with bags of atmosphere - rather like going back to how I imagine watching cricket in the 50s would have been. Nostalgic and somehow magical.

Watching Sussex carve our bowlers to all parts was anything but nostal...well it was nostalgic I suppose, took me back to the days of James Bovill etc...

It wasn't magical anyway!

I visited Hove as a neutral - bit more relaxing that way!

haha that bit in the C&G 'semi-final' where Thornley lost his rag and threw his hat at the bloke in the beer tent last season was magical. I think he threw his hat, I could be imagining that bit. Warne and Udal having a hissy fit as Kirtley destroyed them was also magical

I was talking about the Championship game but oh well...

Fair play to Thornley, Warne and Udal IMO.

Well done to Sussex... but hope they don't spoil the atmosphere there by making it too glitzy.

Bit odd actually - he played a 20/20 match last season, but there is no mention of it in his profile.

I haven't really heard much about Vinter at all. Matt Machan helped win a warm up against Northants the other day, just 16 years old, in a 50 partnership at 9 an over mith Michael Thorneley who's only 19. Prior hit 102 against Surrey yesterday to add to his 79 against Glamorgan. Things are looking good

I don't think he played an official 20:20, he definitely played in that Micky Mouse floodlight cup at the end of the season though. Might be wrong, mind

I think you'll find that the 20/20 floodlit cup is anything but a mickey mouse competition. Another glorious trophy win for the Essex Eagles. Here's the one Vintner played.
