Royal London Club Championship heats up

The Royal London Club Championship reaches the last-16 stage on Sunday with some familiar teams still in at this stage of the competition.

Previous winners include Chorley (1995 & 1996), Sandiacre Town (2003) and York (1975 & 2012) while Cambridge Granta (2011), Ealing (1971, 1994, 2009 & 2013) and Hasting & St Leonards Priory (1983) have all made it to the final in the past.

Last season’s runners-up Ealing of the Middlesex League make the short trip to Surrey Championship side Sunbury for a place in the quarter-finals while Frocester, leaders of the West of England Premier League, make the significantly longer trip to St Just, themselves running away with the Cornwall Premier League so far this season, who are based only five miles from Land’s End.

In the all-Sussex Premier League tie Hastings & St Leonards Priory, who currently sit bottom of the league table, welcome second-placed Roffey to Horntye Park while Essex Premier League leaders Brentwood travel to East Anglian Premier League side Cambridge Granta.

Two league strugglers meet in Lancashire as Northern Premier League side Chorley host Cheshire Premier League side Bowdon, with both teams hoping a win will kick-start their league campaign.

Walmley of the Birmingham & District Premier League make the trip up the M6 to Liverpool & District Premier League side Northern and across the Pennines the 2012 champions York, looking for their eighth successive Yorkshire Premier League title this season, have Derbyshire Premier League’s Chesterfield visiting them at Clifton Park.

Fellow Derbyshire Premier League side Sandiacre Town, who dumped out last season’s champions West Indian Cavaliers in the third round make the journey to Stone, who are current leaders of the North Staffs & South Cheshire Premier League.
