The Unicorns lost to Nottinghamshire yesterday. This reminded us that a friend was asking about them the other day. We suppose we’d better clear up a few questions.

Who are the Unicorns?
The Unicorns are the ECB Recreational XI.

Where are they from?
They are from “long ago.”

Why should I support them?

    * likely to get you into trouble at some stage, but it might well nevertheless be worth it
    * shrouded in near-insane mythology

  3. The unicorn is the symbol of purity [aka in medieval terms = virginity] and some of these lads look either in the correct zone or way beyond it in the sensual sense – but maybe the brainiacs in the ruling body have an unusual insight
