Best of the Playoffs: A history

The Play offs have taken place since 1996 when Mid-Shropshire League Champions Coddon played Sir John Bayley in front of a big crowd at St Georges. Since 2000 we have had a Play off final every season, with only two seasons not featuring a Premier League team after Craven Arms and Childs Ercall pulled out in 2005 and 2012 respectively. There has been 7 Premier League teams that have lost the game and their place in the league, three of these have been in the last four years. 12 out of the 21 games have had a result of less than 20 chalks between the two teams, showing how close these games have proved to be over the years.

If you click on the year (apart from 1996 which I hope to update with scores soon) then there is a report with scores and pictures from that year.
