County Team News


It was a busy time this week for the Staffordshire county teams, the good news was that the Under 100 were awarded a win when Nottinghamshire’s Junior Team were unable to fulfil the fixture. The Under 120 team cannot report similar news with the home match against Leicestershire resulting in a 4½ to 7½ defeat.

The next county games will be on Saturday 29th Febrary when both the Under 140 and Under 100 will be in action against Derbyshire (U140) and Warwickshire (U100). This is a big commitment for the County so why not and try a Saturday match and have a game. You can contact the captains by following this link.

Opportunity to Represent Staffordshire Under 140 Team


The Staffordshire Under 140 Team met Lincolnshire at the weekend in the pleasant Leicestershire village of Rothley. Despite some interesting games the match was lost by 6½ to 9½.
