To do so, I think they really need to buy the cricket club first. Whether this is a new build or significant redevelopment.

Can anybody a centre-back partnership where they were both left-footed? If it’s that straightforward surely football would be littered with them. I can’t think of any. Post #129 Football isn't "littered with them" as there are statistically more right footed footballers than left footed.

It's the same reason there are a lot more right footed left backs than left footed right backs.
