There have been some very good games this year with high scoring and close contests outweighing one-sided matches.

I have determined the quarter final line up according to the rules laid out on page 140 of the handbook. There were 5 group winners and 5 runners-up and in order to find 8 quarter-finalists the 2 unlucky runners-up were Old Albanian and West Herts, decided on points average.  The 3 runners-up that qualify are therefore Berkhamsted, Knebworth Park and Bishop's Stortford.

As Bushey won 2 of the groups those 2 sides are the first quarter-final.

Hertford and Hitchin both achieved maximum points average so according to the rules Hitchin play Bishop's Stortford and Hertford play Knebworth Park.  That leaves Harpenden to play Berkhamsted.

The quarter final line up is therefore (home team first):

        Bushey 1 v Bushey 2

        Hitchin v Bishop's Stortford

        Hertford v Knebworth Park

        Harpenden v Berkhamsted

The home team managers are to offer fixtures to their opposite number according to the rules on page 141 of the handbook.  Please will you make every effort to play your matches by Wednesday 12th July.

Please will you inform me of the date of your quarter-final before it is played

Thanks, Andrew
