Nottinghamshire achieved a hat-trick of wins!

[<<] [>>] by Roger Wood
30th May 2007 (AC - Championships)

Chris Williams's records reveal the following consecutive year runs (3 or more), where the numbers in square brackets give the number of counties competing that year:

Nottinghamshire (2005, 2006, 2007) [22,22,22]
Eastern Counties (1990, 1991, 1992) [12,10,11]
Middlesex (1978, 1979, 1980) [8,8,?]
Middlesex (1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965) [6,7,7,6,6,6,6,6]
Surrey (1953, 1954, 1955) [4,8,4]
Surrey (1933,1934, 1935) [10,13,10]
Middlesex (1913, 1914, 1920, 1921) (not held) 1915-1919 [10,10,7,9]
Berkshire (1897, 1898, 1899, 1900) [?,?,?,2]

So Nottinghamshire have some way to go to equal Middlesex, but today's achievement has to be viewed in the light of the huge increase in both the number and quality of county teams in recent years.
