This rather simple website is actually a nice resource aimed at the grass-roots game. It is a good contact network, with regular information about national events and competitions, message boards putting people in contact with games, and tips on playing. Most usefully, it gives people without web-building skills the opportunity to easily set up club sites. For £25, and a £50 annual subscription, Play-Cricket will provide the software platform and host the sites.  Gloucestershire Seniors Play-Cricket site can be accessed through the above link 

Live County Cricket Score (ECB)

The England and Wales Cricket Board was established on January 1 1997 as the single national governing body for all cricket in England and Wales.  It has its headquarters at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The formation of the ECB was the culmination of a drive towards creating, for the first time, one unified body responsible for the management and development of every form of cricket for men and women.  This included clubs, schools, juniors and youth, disabilities cricket, representative, first class and international cricket.  The ECB took over the responsibilities carried out for some 30 years by the Test and County Cricket Board (TCCB), the National Cricket Association (NCA) and the Cricket Council, all of which ceased to exist.  In April 1998 the Women’s Cricket Association (WCA) was also integrated into the organisation.

Wisden has been cricket's bible for more than 100 years, and its staid sister site is to get a £4m Neville Brody- designed relaunch in time for the Ashes. The site editor, Tim de Lisle, has promised to mine the Almanack's extensive archives, combining video clips and stills of the all-time great players with quality writing, to tackle contemporary issues (the magazine has campaigned vociferously against match-fixing) and to report in depth on current matches. Three new columnists, including two former players, have signed up.
 
The Barmy Army are England's beery, rowdy but good-natured band of travelling fans. Their site, now hosted by Rivals.net, has lost some of its fanzine-like quality, but retains a laddish cheeriness - useful if you want to be armed with the latest songs to taunt the Aussies this summer. When England is on tour, the site offers regular bulletins, a message board and a weekly chat room. If you fancy following the England team abroad, the site is already preparing for the Ashes in 2002-3, with Australian city guides and travel tips.
 
Billing itself as "the world's ultimate cricket resource", CricketLine, part of the 365 Network, is a serious rival to CricInfo. Though its website is packed with features, it focuses on the international scene. Its busy home page offers live "matchtracker" scoreboards, global news coverage, pictures, features and magazine elements, such as On This Day and Media Watch. But the site is too cluttered with pop-up ads, and its most promising feature - a celebrity chat room - only attracted the former South Africa coach Bob Woolmer.
 
Jack Russell's site is a genuine curio. The former England wicketkeeper is a true eccentric, and a talented painter whose website acts as a showcase for his work. The site is neatly divided into Jack the Artist and Jack the Cricketer. The latter section contains a newspaper profile, his career record and a painting commemorating the greatest moment of his career - the day he accompanied Michael Atherton at the wicket during his epic match-saving innings against South Africa in 1995.

As the largest segment of the population, one would assume our nation's senior citizens to be relishing in a fair amount of respect and consideration.  Unfortunately, the opposite has proven to be true in some of the institutions entrusted with their care and overall well-being.  Recent studies reveal that 1 in 3 nursing homes are guilty of neglect or abuse in one form or another.  Further information can be found here:  http://www.nursinghomeabuseguide.org/
