Dave Faulkner asked the committee if we thought that a squad of 24 should be considered for the county teams. Some squads have been using a squad of 20 and then choosing a squad of 16 to take to county games with every player selected playing at least 1 county game. The committee have agreed after a very long discussion that a squad of 20 can be selected if the standard is good enough but all players selected must at some point play in the championships. Only a squad of 16 can be taken to each county game.
