Worcestershire certain of Midlands title
17 Mar. Notts beat Worcs by a single point. Staffs lose out to Shrops by the same margin
3 Mar. Derbys concede to Leics. Warks beat Notts to go third in the table. Worcs are zone winners because they beat Leics in their individual match and Worcs' last match against Notts is immaterial. as already pointed out. Leics are runners-up. Warks look likely to become MCCU's third nomination for the national stages because Worcs would have to lose to Notts at the same time as Derbys beat Warks, which seems unlikely with Derbys current form. (Thanks to Controller, Giles Stanton, Sean Hewitt, and Neil Graham for putting the webmaster right)
