County team

The Notts, Lincs & Derbyshire senior men's side currently play in the third division of County Championship rugby union. They reached their first County County Championship final in 1986, losing 12-9 to Middlesex at Twickenham Stadium, back when it was a single competition. They had to wait another 20 years for another Twickenham final, finally winning their first county silverware in 2006 when they defeated Oxfordshire 21 - 17 to claim the County Championship Shield.[2][3] In recent years the team has struggled, at one point even having to drop out of the 2018 County Championship Shield, although they will be back for the 2019 competition.[4]
