Good to see 2 new teams in the packed U120 section

Despite finding several key players unavailable (at Scarborough)- Notts won their opening Minor Counties match 10-6 against Warwickshire. No doubt the board scores will be displayed on the MCCU website in the next couple of days.

Lincolnshire assert their position at the top of the table; Leicestershire defeated for a second time.

Lincs narrowly beat Notts

Worcs do same with Leics thanks to their rather handy top board

Teams Pl W D L Match Points
Lincolnshire 3 3 0 0 6
Warwickshire 3 2 0 1 4
Nottinghamshire 3 1 0 2 2
Leicestershire 4 1 0 3 2
Worcestershire 3 1 0 2 2

This means that Lincolnshire, Warwickshire and either Notts or Worcs qualify for the national stages. Notts took an early lead agst Lincolnshire but as usual the match went right down to the last game.

It's very competitive with not much between the teams as far as I can see

I assume if Warks win v Lincs, the title is shared but Warks get M1 nomination; if not, Lincs are M1 (presuming they are all entering the Minor in the national stages)

Notts v Worcs is a straight fight for a place, with board count deciding in the event of a draw

If Notts win and Warks lose, then Notts would be M2 as they have beaten Warks; if Worcs win and Warks lose, then Warks would be M2 as they have beaten Worcs
