Ive been meaning to ask if someone in the know could give me a run down of how the many leagues in the northwest compare. Many are not ECB Premier Leagues but I don't know if that counts for anything.
The Lancashire KO Cup is a decent indicator.
Prior to the Lancashire League showing an interest, the most successful leagues have been the Northern, Liverpool Competition and Bolton League.
Lancashire League teams shared the trophy with Liverpool Comp in 2017 and won against Liverpool Comp representatives in 2018.
This season the last 8 are
If I were to rank the leagues I would say
1= Liverpool Competition, Lancashire
5 Greater Manchester
=6 Ribblesdale, Palace
53 teams are allowed to enter the LKO. The Palace Shield entry is rather odd since it has now become in all but name the Second Division of the Northern League (the current top 3 are all relegated Northern League teams). Perhaps the organisers haven't quite kept up.
7 - Bolton Cricket League
7 - Lancashire League
7 - Liverpool & District Cricket Competition
7 - Northern Premier League
7 - Palace Shield Competition
7 - Ribblesdale League
7 - Greater Manchester Cricket League
2 - Southport & District Amateur Cricket League
2 - Greater Manchester Amateur Cricket League
