Richardson Cup 1996-1997

Main Tournament

Crowwood CC , a team which included several former representatives of Paisley CC, win the Richardson for the first time, while the subject of their previous loyalty are relegated only three years after their last win of the trophy, never to reappear. Former holders Wandering Dragons return with a maximum win but go no further,beaten by Edinburgh West who go on to reach their first final. Two rounds are held before Christmas (also in 1997-98) to assist in accommodating the link to the BCF National Club Championship.
