After beating Lincolnshire 11.5-4.5 last month, Notts went one better and defeated Warwickshire 12.5-3.5 yesterday winning nine and drawing seven of the 16 games.

Looks like a 2 horse race with Leics and both likely to qualify

I rather over egged the pudding with the result against Lincolnshire - it was 11-5. The Notts v Warwickshire result will appear on the MCCU website once some computer adjustments have been made by the webmaster I understand. It will probably be on the Notts CA website over the weekend.

As regards qualification for the national stages, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire have already qualified with the other three counties fighting it out for the remaining place.

Scores at present :- Notts 5/6, Leics 5/6; Worcs 2/4; Lincs 0/4, Warwicks 0/4.

Notts-Warks

Much weaker Warks team than historically they have managed, half U180 and half U160

Looks likely the final match Lincs - Worcs will determine third place

Possibly not as clear as it was - Warwicks beat Leicestershire 8.5-7.5 yesterday. :?

Slightly stronger Warks team
match card

It does give Worcs a chance if they win their last 2 matches

Match result today - Worcestershire 7 Nottinghamshire 9.

This means M1 is Nottinghamshire; M2 Leicestershire and M3 will depend of Lincs v Worcs next week.

Well done to Warks, winners of the U180 and thus stopping the Notts clean sweep

In credible overall performance from Notts, though, well organised by Neil as usual
