Staffs demolish Warks to take championship

13 Feb. Webmaster informed that Notts have withdrawn from this division making Staffs champions repeating their 2010 triumph.

1 Feb. Staffs demolish Warks in a victory said to be the best for them for at least 20 years.

31 Jan. Notts failed to field a side against Greater Manchester

4 Dec. Notts were unable to raise a side to play Warks and Warks rise to the top by default.

27 Nov. A massive win by Staffs puts them top of the table.

14 Nov. The Staffs-Notts fixture was postponed and a new date is awaited.

23 Oct. Warwickshire comfortably beat a Greater Manchester side weakened by defections to the Scarborough Congress and become the team to catch.

10 Sep. Nine county teams compete in the MCCU open team tournament, which is run as two divisions. The MCCU Team Championship is the upper division and the counties in the lower division compete for the MCCU Minor County Championship. County associations may elect whether to play in the championship or the minor championship division and there is no automatic promotion or relegation. The top three teams from the Championship - providing at least five teams in the two divisions have completed their fixtures - will be offered MCCU's nomination for the national stages of the open competition and will not be eligible to enter the national stages of the Minor Counties competition, which unlike the MCCU Minor County Championship, is grading limited (see Rules for the National Stages).
