It just goes to show that Divison 2 is much harder than Division 1.

Not from where I'm sitting (the managers office in Lincoln).

County League Gazette: 1st January 2011 - December review

Five points remains to be the gap at the top of Division One, despite Cambridgeshire's humiliating loss to Suffolk. Somerset lost to Staffordshire in Taunton as they failed to capitalise. At the bottom, Suffolk and Leicestershire are within touching distance of safety, only 3 points behind Middlesex and Devon. With a couple of good results, things may all change for the bottom two.

In Division Two, Lincolnshire are still well clear, with the Welsh Counties a further ten points from third placed Cheshire. Rutland remain bottom, managing only one point in December.

The big talking point, however, has been the group stage results, which were as follows:

County League Gazette: 1st February 2011 - January review

Cambridgeshire's lead at the top of the table has again shrunk, thanks to a loss against Northumberland and a draw in Berkshire. Durham, now hot on their heels won all their league games, fresher due to not being in the cup. At the bottom of the table, Suffolk and Middlesex continue to struggle.

In the Second Division, Lincolnshire continue to dominate, with the Welsh Counties also safely in their second place. Rutland continue to show little ambition or drive, still only having recorded one win all season as the crowds start to diminish - Rutland is the smallest county in the league and has always struggled to attract interest.

In the Cup, the First Round was completed without too many surprises, though Lincolnshire destroyed Berkshire 10-2 on aggregate. The Quarter Final draw is as follows:

Kent (D1) v Cheshire (D2)

Herts. (D2) v Derbys. (D1)

Cambs. (D1) v Welsh Counties (D2)

Hunts. (D2) v Lincs. (D2)

Finally, in the Challenge Cup, the two sides produced a five-goal thriller. The champions, the first county to lift any silverwear were...Cornwall! The boys from the South-West lifting the trophy after a fine 3-2 victory.

Division One summary

Top 3: Cambridgeshire, Durham (-3), Derbyshire (-5)

Manager of the month: Arron Balmer (Durham)

Goal of the month: Febian Brandy (Cumberland (v Westmorland))

Hopefully Kent can make a run at this Europa league place and Essex can stave of relegation
