    $50,000 for Somerset Cricket Club but only $25,000 for St. George.

    It seems the Premier has already relegated us to second place and that once again if you live east of White Hill your opinion doesn’t matter.

    Why is the government giving either club OUR money? If the clubs are not making a profit from gate receipts, rental fees from food vendors and crown and anchor operators, sky boxes and liquor sales they are even more financially inept than the government itself!

    West End is marginal and fickle, whereas East End are solid PLP.
