    Good grief!

    How about two pools of ten, each play each other, then the top four play the top four in the other group in reverse alphabetical order and then there's a final at Lord's between Norwich and Cambridge.

    It's lucky that this discussion started so early, we're actually now further away from a decision than we were two weeks ago. I suggest fisticuffs in Sheffield on Friday week. That should do it.

    Wellington/Oakengates/ other part(s) of Telford new town.
    Two of these should not be there, Wellington etc has already been done and Cambridge was in a South poll. It doesn't matter where it is, it's been classified as South.

    The list is merely the places people have suggested, nothing has been ruled out or ruled in yet (until we have a poll) and I guess people might even suggest other places in "the Midlands" however defined.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    So on that basis it'll be OK for me to suggest Newcastle Under Lyme for the next North & South outings?

    If you wish to make the suggestion I'll add it to the list, now 21 and counting.

    We could place them in the East of England, which I believe is the standard geography term for this region: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_of_England

    Then we could invent an imaginary 'central' category, to include the East and West Midlands along with the East of England.

    Exactly and a year or two earlier Wellington and other Telford towns.

    Agreed, does it really matter if a place is ten miles north or south of an undefined border, I was having a laugh with the geography aspect but come on , lets just sort out a decent pub crawl.
