Prior to the fixture Warwickshire are on 42 points and in a comfortable fourth position in the table while their hosts have 26 points and are lying next to bottom of the table, just two points to the good on bottom placed Essex, a win would consolidate Warwickshire’s position and could well see them move a little higher up the table.

Clwyd v Shropshire Shropshire kicked off their programme in division four of the BDO Inter County Championships with a commendable 18-18 draw away to Tyne and Wear. Their second fixture was a home tie with West of England where again after all four games were played finished with an 18-18 scoreline, however it turned out that their opponents had played an ineligible player in Sunday’s men’s game and as a result had points deducted and the result amended to a 19-17 in favour of Shropshire Now with confidence high after the opening two games Shropshire will be travelling to Wales this coming weekend where they will take on Clwyd at the Penyffordd Royal British Legion Club Buildings, Chester Road, Penyffordd, Nr. Chester, CH4. 0JZ and will be looking to reverse last season’s result where they lost at home against Clwyd 21-15.
