Divisions 1,1B 4& 5 are pretty much the same as last year.
In division 2 this year we are aiming to introduce a division 2B, similar to division 1B. This is to give weaker schools an opportunity to compete for a place in a county final. All D2 teams will compete together initially, with results determining who will continue on to play in Division 2 or 2B.
Division 3 has been divided into 4 groups with the winner from each qualifying for county semi-finals.
If I have someone in a wrong division or have left somebody out or you want a change, please get in touch with either myself or James. If you are not on the list we haven’t received your completed affiliation form. The list will be finalised on Wednesday 16th March. Please check the list below and get back to me ASAP with any additions or alterations required.
