The Aegon Winter County Cup is a one-off event played over three days at the end of November. It’s the second oldest County Cup event that was first played in 1946. Surrey are the most successful county with their men’s team winning sixteen times and the ladies a record twenty-six times. The forty-four counties are placed in four counties per group per gender with Group 1 the premier division.

Good Luck Liam and the Hampshire team!
