Priestley Shield to be drawn again

Priestley Shield to be drawn again

6 Dec 2017

The draw for the first round of the 2018 Priestley Shield is to be drawn again after an administrative error led to two teams not going into the hat.

The cup committee ordered a re-draw just as soon as the problem came to light and it will take place early next week.

It means there will now be 36 teams competing so there will need to be four first round ties.

The draw will be published on this website once it has been made.
