U11 Hardball 2021
PROPOSED ESCA U11 HARDBALL GROUPINGS FOR 2021
North – Cumbria, Lancashire Martin Wadsworth
West – Devon, Dorset, Somerset Chris Twort/Giles Ashman
East – Cambridgshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Suffolk Mike Spinks/Phil Evans
West Midlands – Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire Steve Aston
South East – Kent, Surrey Phil Everest/Bill Burton
South – Berkshire, Hampshire Don Crawford
Please note that the East Group will send two winning schools to the National Finals.
As Surrey has by far the most County entries, their two County Finalists together with the Kent winners will contest a round robin event – somewhere on the Kent/Surrey border – with the top two schools out of the three going through to the National Finals.
So 6 Groups should produce 8 National Finalists.
A number of ‘big hitters’ – including Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Sussex and Yorkshire are not competing this year, so let’s hope we return to some normality in 2022.
