Attendences are high at Scarborough no doubt about it, but cann YCCC afford to play x amount of days cricket away from their ground? That's the key question.
I wonder how the other counties get along, do other clubs also own their outgrounds?
Attendances are high at Scarborough and I love going. It's a long time though, since more than 7,000 have regularly attended.
With more than about 6,000 in the ground, it's an uncomfortable squeeze.
I would support two Championship fixtures at Scarborough for as long as good attendances can be maintained.
Yorkshire need to work very hard to build their support base and should be able to attract far higher audiences than that which attended today's semi-final. I hope the Club feels disappointed with today's attendance. Nevertheless, as support is grown for the one day forms of the game, Headingley is the only ground in the County with the capacity to comfortably accommodate crowds of 6,000 plus.
I wish it were different.
