They do it in Football at schoolboy level. I played for Middlesex Under 14's - I think they do it at amateur level as well

We did a thread in which you picked a team made up of players from your home county, and mine was rubbish. Most counties have a County Cup, but League and Conference teams usually play their reserve or youth teams in it.

Until about 1990, the County Championship was the main domestic tournament in English Rugby Union, but slowly but surely the club game took precedence, and when the club game went professional, the county championship was effectively killed off. It's still going, but nowadays I think there's even a rule that no-one playing in the National Leagues (ie the top three tiers of the club game) can be selected by the County selectors.

Aside from Cricket, where the County Championship is still the top level of the game beneath the international team, probably the only major sports on these isles whose main championship is still based around a proper county structure are the still-fiercely amateur Gaelic sports, Football and Hurling.

Leicestershire, well somebody's got to mention it, is peopled entirely by recent immigration. They are all either football mangers, ex managers or would be managers.
This saves much time when being interviewed for a vacancy at the Walkers and so both reduces our carbon footprint and is good for the local golf business, now catering for eighty three new courses.

The rugby (Union) county scene has withered badly in recent years. In its heyday, it was seen as the stepping stone to the England squad (the 1980s Grand Slam team was made up largely of the North team that had swept all before it). Now, with the porfessional clubs, it's more of a lower divisions/amateur thing, although of course Cornwall is very strongly followed and has a great shirt as sported by this lot -
