That is (roughly from north to south if you move Warwickshire a bit north!):

Yorkshire (4); Lancashire (3); Warwickshire (2); Lincolnshire (1); Nottinghamshire (1); Leicestershire (1); Norfolk (1); Surrey (1).

Yeah, as Neil already said elsewhere, only one SCCU team in the Finals. :shock:

(Heh, even Norfolk is 'north' of Warwickshire.)

There has been a dramatic turn round in the last four years. Here are details of the finalists over this period.

2015 SCCU 8, NCCU 2, MCCU 2, EACU 1, WECU 1
2016 SCCU 7, MCCU 4, NCCU 2, EACU 1
2017 NCCU 5, MCCU 4, SCCU 3, WECU 1, EACU 1
2018 NCCU 7, MCCU 5, SCCU 1, EACU 1

I'll give the winning stats in due course but these will again show how the SCCU pre-eminence has declined.

Even that one is a bit strange, because I don't think of Surrey as a Minor County.

Surrey "qualified" by finishing bottom of the SCCU Open Counties Championship section with 2/8 (losing to Middlesex, Essex & Kent but beating Sussex).

Going back to 2016 the titles held then for the past five years were :-

SCCU 18, MCCU 8, NCCU 6, EACU 2, WECU 1 (35 titles)

before the 2018 titles are added the situation is

SCCU 9, NCCU 8, MCCU 7, EACU 2, WECU 2 (28 titles)

consequently SCCU will be overhauled by NCCU and possibly MCCU after this season's finals.

Maybe SCCU players are just more optimistic about England’s chances of progression in the World Cup ;)

Maybe SCCU players want to play at Kings Place?
