* These 3rd nominees are as provided for by rule B3,

being possible where the Union stage included 5 or more teams (so not a root for Yorkshire onto the Open!).

 

As no section has more than 8 entrants, it is evident that no preliminary rounds will be necessary.  Indeed, the Open section precedes directly to the semi-final round.

 

At least one county had potential problems in finding the necessary captains for this national stage, but with any luck such problems will be surmounted.

 

Dates for rounds are
