Result of the alignment vote

Dear Colleagues,

Many thanks for your votes. Almost all counties have voted but regrettably it has been a very close call, so quite a number of counties will no doubt be disappointed. Nevertheless, we shall all have to work together to make it a success.

Option 2 has the majority with a 18-16 result, which means that the season will start in September and run as it has for the past 20 years.

I shall be in touch again shortly with the second part of the vote to decide whether we start the season with an odd or even age group.
