East Beds Shield introduces a new Under-18s competition
It was also pleasing to note that nine cricket clubs were in attendance at Ickwell Cricket Club who agreed to the new competition while a complete new set of rules will be prepared for adoption at the competition’s AGM in mid-March.
The new competition’s matches will start promptly at 6.15pm with the aim of playing 16 six ball overs although if the weather makes that impractical, then a minimum of 14 six ball overs may be played with each bowler limited to a maximum of four overs.
While the draw for the Heritage Cup and and East Beds Shield will be made at the AGM, the competing teams are as follows:
Heritage Cup – Zone A: Ampthill Town, Biggleswade Town, Caldecote, Flitwick, Ickwell, Langford. Zone B: Blunham, Eaton Socon, Kempston Hammers, Kimbolton, Potton Town, Waresley.
East Beds Shield: Ampthill Town, Biggleswade Town, Blunham, Caldecote, Clifton YD, Cople Argus, Eaton Socon, Flitwick, Henlow, Ickwell, Kempston Hammers, Langford, Potton Town, Southill Park, Waresley.
