Further fixtures against a County XI, British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Club Cricket Conference were introduced in 1974, 75 & 76 which led to a regular Tour taking place on an Annual basis.
The following 12 months saw a further group of players identified and now available for selection so the decision was made to extend an invitation to include the new players meaning the inaugural Tour Party would consist of 22 players. However, the number reduced to 18 due to injury and unavailability.
Following the decision made by Scotland to withdraw from the Championship due to lack of player availability, operational requires throughout the Summer and ongoing covid restrictions still in force there we no Group 2 matches played.
For once April showers did not wipe out the opening round of the 2021 National Championship with only the Group 2 fixture between Northumbria & Durham v West Yorkshire being affected and falling foul to the weather which prevented the “new boys” from travelling to the reigning Cup holders.

Clear blue skies, glorious sunshine and temperatures already reaching 25c greeted both teams as they arrived at the Fischer County Ground, Grace Road Leicester on Thursday 19th September for the inaugural Final of the newly created National Championship.
On another blisteringly hot day Mick MARTIN was grateful to have won the toss again and chose to bat. That didn’t look such a good idea however at 39-3 with Alan Davidson, Jon Cumberbatch and the captain back in the pavilion.
