RALPH BARNETT MEMORIAL TROPHY 18th September 2004 at Northwick Park
This was a match between Middlesex and the North Circular League, won 11-4 by Middx.
     The Ralph Barnett was last held, we believe, in 1998 when it was won by Essex. We have little information on its past but it is an inter-league tournament, no doubt historically a jamboree, which we think used to be organised annually by Middx, Mr Barnett's County. For this year's revived event Middx issued invitations to a number of organisations, Counties included, but it seems that only NCCL were able to raise a team.
