Midlands Leagues
2017-18 season

September Away v. Warwickshire

A poor start for the 1st and 2nd teams which both lost to last seasons champions; the 3rd team drew 10-10. 

October Home v. Leicestershire

Three good wins took us back over average in all three divisions.

November Home v. Worcestershire

Three more wins by moderate amounts. After this the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams are lying 2nd, 3rd and 3rd in the Dawes, Porter and Markham leagues respectively. The Porter team is lying relatively better as they are only two points behind the division leaders.

Dawes Porter & Markham Leagues

The Midlands County League is a team-of eight Championship with one match against each of the other counties per season.  There are three divisions - for the first, second and third teams of each county - playing for the Dawes, Porter and Markham trophies respectively.

The season runs from September to March with one match per month and a break across the summer.  Matches are of 32 boards on Sundays at 14.30. Our selection committee is chaired by Richard Butland and players interested in participating should contact him.

2016-17 was our best for many years, with GCBA winning the Markham Trophy for 'C' teams and coming 2nd in the Dawes league. The 'C' team then came 1st=  in the inter-league playoffs, losing the trophy on a split tie.
