Staffordshire County Tournaments 2007/8

Tournament Secretary: Graham Humphreys

Up until last year, the early rounds in the County Cups were zoned, so clubs would not have to travel very far until they reached the later stages. As an experiment, this season was organised differently.  For the Withnall trophy, clubs from the north were paired (at random), against clubs from the south. When that was complete, remaining clubs were paired against each other. For the other cups, pairings were drawn at random from all the clubs taking part in each event.
