New 20 over competition - The LCU 20/20 Cup

The LCU is delighted to announce a new 20 over competition, The LCU 20/20 Cup sponsored by the Russell Court Hotel, which is to be played between sides competing towards the bottom of the OCC's league structure.

In recent years, a lack of a 20 over competition at this level has removed the opportunity of many cricketers to play in a competitive tournament, an opportunity that will be now given to 24 teams.

The teams will be split into eight regionalised groups of three, with the tems playing each other once, at a date and time of their choosing. Some groups may wish to play matches on mid week nights, some may wish to make a day of it, playing three matches at one ground on a Saturday or Sunday. It's up to the clubs to decide.

The winners of each group will then face each other in quarter and semi finals, before a finals day in Railway Union, with the Whelan Cup final being held on the same day.
