London homegrown championship

(Oldest Posts First)

Is the home grown cup being held this year?

The one where the clubs field teams made up of entirely london born players?

Homegrown competition is being played in Warwickshire.
Semifinals are being played this week , I am presuming winners will then go forward to meet other county champions in an all Britain competition, as they have done in previous years.
Who would be the favourites in London this year ??

This competition is never taken seriously, especially in London. The county board crow bar it in, in the middle of the season with little notice when teams have too much on to put a meaningful team in if at all. I know the club I was involved with never really took part and would be one of the stronger in terms of home grown players in the past.

It's a shame as I think if it was given it's own spot in the calendar at the start of the year without interfering with championship, this could be a very good competition.
