After a draw in their opening match, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire affirmed their position with wins over Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

Three matches have already taken place in 2019. With five points from three games Lincolnshire have already confirmed their position as one of the three MCCU qualifiers; the remaining two places will depend on the final four matches.

Nottinghamshire with a last gasp win over Worcestershire now qualify for the Minor Counties. Worcestershire fielded an IM and WGM on their top two boards. The last place will go to either Warwickshire or Leicestershire.

Lincolnshire slipped up in their last match against Warwickshire who must now hope that Leicestershire fail to win either of their two remaining matches.

Leics beat Notts result

I gather that Leics are entering the Open at National stages, along with G Man

Does the MCCU still get 3 entries to the Minor? I assume Warks qualify if so, along with Notts & Lincs

My opinions about the MCCU ignoring it's own rules are not repeatable on this forum. I have sent an e-mail to the MCCU Controller about this.
Addn :- It has now been confirmed that the MCCU only have two nominations into the national stages.
