WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Two reasons: -
1) For a new bowler now playing in Club Friendly matches this could be the first step in the progression to a County Badge & possible further honours
2) For a senior bowler who may no longer be interested in playing in too many matches this is the best way to support your County by sharing your knowledge with less experienced bowlers & contributing something back to the County
