L&DCC 1st XI Ground Statistics - average overs per match per season - 1999-2016

The following table shows the average number of overs bowled at each ground per match per season since the formation of two divisions in 1999 and ultimately three in 2010.

With the duration of matches being built around the ECB's requirement of a minimum of 110 overs per match, there have been only seven instances of grounds averaging over 100 overs per match since the L&DCC became an ECB Premier League in 2000.

In the ECB Premier League, Fleetwood Hesketh averaged 102.27 in 2006, Maghull 100.42 in 2003, Northern 100.50 in 2006 and Rainford 102.03 in 2013.

Northop Hall averaged 100.56 and Wigan 100.93 in the Premier Division in 1999.

Whilst in the First Division, Highfield averaged 103.04 in 2006, Newton le Willows 104.51 in 2006 and Sefton Park 104.66 in 2011.

During the period, the Premier Division/ECB Premier League has averaged 91.12 overs per match, with the First Division averaging 86.58 and the Second Division 80.92 (see tables below).
