Junior County

The Junior fixtures are out and there is a new format this season as approved at the Rules Revision Meeting. It is now three divisions with relegation and promotion in between the three with one team going down and one team coming up each season. The Premier Division consists of five teams with recent winners Warwick and Worcester and Yorkshire the favourites to win the division and be crowned champions. They both meet in the last game of the division which could be a title decider. Shropshire are a team in transition and haven’t beaten either of the two above teams since 2009, and will have to change that to be able to win the division. Wales and Derbyshire are two up and coming teams and will look to upset the established teams before their meeting on the last match day.

In Division 1 and all five teams are up and coming over the last few years and will all fancy their chances of promotion to the Premier Division. In Division 3 and Cumbria have already withdraw to leave 4 teams playing over 5 match days. Potteries & District have struggled to field a full team recently but with it being 10 a side then hopefully they will be able to and be competitive again.
