Thank you to all the club secretaries and committee members for promoting the player survey amongst their team/clubs members. In just over 2 days the survey page was visited 543 times, so we got the message out to our cricketing community which created interest to participate.
Of the 543 that visited the page 145 players completed the survey and on behalf of the league we wish to thank you for taking the time to complete the survey which has provided very useful and interesting results which are shared below.
