The friendly side is generally composed of players who do not make the league team on a given weekend and/or healing an injury or players who like the social cricket and do not mind enjoying the gentlemen’s afternoon while playing the traditional game in whites on a Sunday afternoon at NCC (or away games at some of the nicest clubs in Ontario like Toronto Cricket and Lawn Club). Due to large number of players joining Niagara Cricket Club in 2012, managment realised that not everyone will make his spot in the weekend league game. Friendly sides are giving preference to all those players. Its also a side where learning and honing skills takes place for juniors and students.
