Apparently, one of the few places it is alive is in the Liverpool League, where Graeme Jones informs us that the home team buy the opposition a jug. We applaud whoever does that, and I remain very good friends with London Colney CC in Herts after a close game in the boiling sun back in the early nineties, in which we won by a close margin, was rewarded with a jug in our changing room at the end of play from them. A fantastic touch and one which was reciprocated the next time we played them. The two clubs have been firm friends since.

Something needs to be done. Time to walk the walk, and not just talk the talk.

I bet it works.
