ROYAL LONDON CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP REACHES NATIONAL STAGES
The Royal London Club Championship has moved onto the Last 16 stage following the Group Finals stage. Each of the group winners have now progressed through to the National Stages of the competition and there are some mouth watering ties to come in the Last 16 round which is being played on Sunday 16th July.
The 2016 champions are still aiming to make it to their second successive final. South Northumberland from the North East Premier League welcome runaway Liverpool & District Premier League leaders Ormskirk to Newcastle. The winner of that tie will host either Hyde or Hanging Heaton in the Quarter Finals. Hyde of the Cheshire League are having a difficult league season but are enjoying an impressive cup run, but they come up against Bradford League leaders Hanging Heaton in Round 5 which will be a tough match for the Cheshire side.
Swardeston were runners up in this competition last season as well as winning the NatWest Club T20. They are already out of the T20 in 2017 so are focusing their efforts on the longer format. They will head to Essex to face Wanstead & Snaresbrook in the next round, who themselves are having a good season, currently leading the Essex Premier League. The winner of that match will play either Teddington of the Middlesex Premier League or High Wycombe of the Home Counties Premier League in the Quarter Finals.
Elsewhere in the Last 16 draw, West of England Premier League leaders Bath host Surrey Championship side Normandy, Ockbrook & Borrowash from Derbyshire play Cuckney, who are currently topping the Nottinghamshire Premier League. Wolverhampton from the Birmingham & District Premier League welcome Firwood Bootle from the Liverpool & District Premier League to the Midlands and East Grinstead from the Sussex Premier League make the short trip to Reigate Priory of the Surrey Championship.
