Cheshire Cup and Shield draws for 2019
Friday 1st March 2019

There was a time when the LDCC's Wirral clubs would look forward to making their annual pilgrimage in October to the Cresta Court Hotel in Altrincham for the formal presentation of the Cheshire Cup and the draw for the next year's competition.

With the competitions' sponsors being breweries, there would be free beer flowing all evening, which led to there being a full house each year. Pints of beer stocked in rows on the floor behind the Birkenhead Park/Old Anselmians table are but a distant memory.

Nowadays standards have dropped, there's no presentation evening and we have to wait until now for the draw to be circulated via Twitter.
