Welsh Dominance

Sherwood, Russell  Saturday, April 17, 2021

I have been doing a lot of chess coding recently but more on that another time. One tool I have developed is to allow the review of ongoing events and to test it I focused on the Counties and Districts Championships of this season.

Running my prediction routine gives the following expected Finishing League Tableā€¦.


West Wales A92
Surrey A8.53
East Wales A8.53
West Wales B85
Hertfordshire A7.56
Essex A7.56
Essex B78
Surrey B5.59


3 of the Top 5 teams are Welsh and Lancashire both benefitted from a very favourable draw and have a strong Welsh Contingent!

On this basis we can expect the two Essex Teams to be fighting over avoiding the 2nd relegation spot!

More ominous is that the East Wales B team appears to be on a promotion trajectory from the 2nd Division as well!
