So your county is ready for your requirements next season, I should be very grateful if you would discuss at your meetings which age groups you would like to enter into the Shires League 2019-20 out of U12, U14, U16, U18 and U20 and whether you may enter 2nd teams also. You need to make your choice by 21/05/19. This may mean bringing forward events used to assess the breadth and depth of ability at the age groups and ascertain whether it is feasible to run a team (or teams) at each of the age groups.
As indicated at the SL AGM In 2018, I have enlisted the help of Graham Hall who will be seeding the counties, collating the travelling preferences and creating the fixture grids for the Shires League 2019-20.
A timetable of actions is listed below. We must keep to this schedule to ensure that we are ready for the fixtures meeting at AGM on 06/07/19.
