Competition entries for 2016

Entries are open once again for the Royal London Club Championship (the ECB National Club Championship) 2016. In 2015 the winners were Blackheath CC from Kent, who enjoyed a nine-wicket win over Northern CC from Lancashire, with the Kent Premier League side taking home the title and £4000 in prize money. 

One of the highlights of the 2015 season happened in this competition when Liam Livingstone hit 350 runs from 138 balls as his club side Nantwich CC scored a massive 579-7 from their 45 overs in their first-round match. Livingstone, who played for Lancashire CCC 2nd XI at the time, was quickly called up to the first team and played throughout Lancashire’s T20 Blast campaign in 2015.
