28 Aug, Peter Sherlock reports. Four teams have entered the 2016-7 Union's County Team championship: Leics, Lincs, Notts, Worcs. In the graded tournaments, Gtr Manchester and Notts have entered the u160; Lincs, Notts, and Worcs the u140; Lincs, Notts, & Worcs, the u120; and Leics and Notts the u100 tournaments. The u180 competition entries will be sought in January. Derbyshire, Staffordshire & Warwickshire have not yet entered.
The remaining entries are now shown:-
Staffs have entered u140, u120 and u100. Derbys have entered the u140.
Warks have entered teams for the championship, u180, u160, u120, and u100 tournaments.
This means that total entries (excluding the U180 which might not take place) are 22, down on last year. No Staffordshire first team after last year's fiasco; no Staffs U160 or Warwicks U140 - both these teams defaulted last year after entering.
MCCU entries into national stages therefore:-
Minor Counties - 3 places
U180 - 1 place
U160 - 2 places
U140 - 3 places
U120 - 3 places
U100 - 2 places
