This Saturday sees the final round of matches in the South West County Championships. Gloucestershire are at home to Devon, Hampshire face Dorset, and Somerset face Cornwall.
Apologies for the delay in updating this post (overslept yesteday). Here's the standings up to the final round. I've assumed 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw. MP= Match Points (the important one), and GP= Game Points (which I assume is used in the event of teams finishing on level points)
Devon: P3 W 2 D1 MP: 5 GP: 30
Gloucestershire: P3 W1 D2 MP: 4 GP: 32
Hampshire: P3 D3 MP: 3 GP: 24
Somerset: P3 D2 L1 MP: 2 GP: 21
Cornwall: P2 L2 MP: 0 GP: 5
So, if Gloucs can beat Devon in the last round of matches, they would overtake them and finish first. Somerset could finish on 50% and move up to third place with a win against Cornwall, as the Hants- Corn match has been cancelled (see earlier post). It's worth noting how close it's been this year, with a large number of drawn matches.
Happy New Year!
