Age Group changes – the result of the vote

Member counties have overwhelmingly decided to go with Even Age Groups for the Shires League.

As our long term aim is to play even age groups for SL matches, this can be implemented immediately, as shown in the table below. You may notice that we will be offering a league at four age groups next season.

Age group for 2016-17 season Born on or after
U18 01/01/2000
U16 01/01/2002
U14 01/01/2004
U12 01/01/2006

In the final count we have 25 votes for Even Age groups, 4 votes for Odd Age groups and 1 county abstained because the members were equally split on which way to vote. Only a few counties did not take part in the voting.
