Following on from the latest announcement from the Government and ECB, the NSSCL have released the league fixtures in each division.
As we were cleared to move into Stage 4 of the roadmap for the recreational cricket, the league announced that we would recommence on Saturday 18th July.
The league have opted against splitting each division in to two and instead teams will play each other once in 40-over per side matches. The fixtures have been complicated by some clubs opting to limit the number of sides they will be fielding this year.
That means that an extra two weeks have been added on to the campaign. It was originally due to finish on September 12, but the final matches will now be played a fortnight later.
The NSSCL had already announced that there would be no promotion or relegation this summer, while overseas players are not permitted to play.
We are so excited for competitive cricket to return on Saturday. Here are the upcoming fixtures for the 1st and 2nd XI:
Saturday 18th July Leek 1st XI v Stone SP
Caverswall 2nd XI v Leek 2nd XI
