Originally, the event was planned on that same weekend at Northampton. Briefly, it was moved to Liverpool on 8/9 April, which would have benefited the majority of teams from a travel point of view.
Only then was it realised that the date clashed with the Grand National at Aintree, as well as the small matter of Everton’s home match against Manchester United – which meant that booking hotels in the city would be either hugely expensive or impossible.
So Walsall, 2/3 April, it will be. Apologies if this further rearrangement creates inconvenience for anyone. Teams involved will be St Andrews University, Liverpool Water Beatles, Manchester Comets, Kirkintilloch & Kilsyth, Solihull and Sunderland.
