Ashton Cup Preliminary Round Preview

The Ashton Cup starts tonight as there are 5 preliminary round ties to get us down to the last 16.

The holders Newport start their campaign to retain the title as they take on Bylet B, recently relegated into Division 6. There is an all Shifnal clash as the C team meet the D team. The other three ties see Division 5 teams looking to upset their Division 4 opponents. Wrockwardine Wood C will be looking to win this again and take on Hadley USC C, Bowring C meet Madeley CC C, who were relegated from Division 4 last season, and Trench C meet Sinclair C.

A reminder that each player needs to have played at least one league game before this game to be eligible.

Fixtures:

Bylet B (+21) v Newport D (Scr)

Wrockwardine Wood C (+2) v Hadley USC (+18)

Trench C (+9) v Sinclair C (+15)

Madeley CC (+10) v Bowring C (+5)

Shifnal C (+11) v Shifnal D (+24)
