David, Greater Manchester have already been eliminated from the Under 160 section, despite being in 2nd place at the moment.
Even if Leicestershire lost or drew yesterday, Nottinghamshire have 3 pts, Staffordshire have 2 pts and GM have 3 pts. The final match is Notts v Staffs. So, the three scenarios:
Notts win v Staffs, Notts 5, GM 3, Staffs 2 - Notts qualify with Warks
Notts draw v Staffs, Notts 4, Staffs 3, GM 3 - Notts qualify with Warks
Notts lose v Staffs, Staffs 4, Notts 3, GM 3 - Staffs qualify with Warks
So whatever happens, GM will not qualify for the National Stages of the Under 160.
There's a slight flaw in this because three MCCU counties qualify for the national stages of the U160 competition. I would have thought the alternate home director might have known that! MCCU3 player EACU2 in the preliminary round
