28 Oct. Leics u160 team are withdrawn.
5 Sep. Notts are not attempting to run an Open team this season leaving Warwickshire and Staffordshire to fight for the title. Both teams automatically qualify for the National Stages. That leaves 6 teams to fight for the two National place in the Minor Championship. Lincolnshire make up for the loss of Notts open team by entering an extra team in the under-120 championship. Leicestershire have entered the under-140 rather than the under-120. Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire will battle it out for the under-180 and under-100 championships.
