Happy New Year Everyone

Its been two months since i suggested a revamp of the county championship and i was not sure what the response would be, but roll on two months and we are just a couple of weeks from the start of the tournament, there are 24 counties in three groups entered which is great for the first year in this format.

I am writing to you now with all the final details, All the fixtures have been finalised, the links to these are

I will be putting out new pages on the forum site for Links, Results and Tables in the next couple of weeks so when the matches begin could you send a link for each game on the links page.

My resolution is to keep you informed with up to date results and tables so that the tournament runs smoothly.

I would like to thank Donna for helping in running this tournament and for giving me all the support that was needed, without that this would not have happen.

I hope you all enjoy this competition and may the best teams win there Leagues.

If you have any problems or any ideas about the county championship please get in contact with me or Donna.

Richard.
