Following on from the latest announcement from the Government and ECB, the Stone League have announced their fixtures.
Leek Cricket Club currently have one side in the Stone League, the Development XI. We have this side so that younger players can develop through the mentorship of more experienced players, to eventually go on to play Saturday cricket for our 1st or 2nd XI.
Today, the Stone League have announced their fixtures which will see a North and South division. Both divisions will have 8 teams, meaning that there will be 7 fixtures each starting from July 19th to 30th August.
Once the league has been completed, the top two teams will go into a smaller version of the Hassell Trophy. Winners of the North Division will play the runners-up of the South Division in semi-final 1 and the winners of the South Division will play the runners-up of the North Division in semi-final 2. Ties to be played on Sunday 6th September. The winners of each tie will go onto play the final on Sunday 13th September.
We are so excited for competitive cricket to return for our Development XI. Here are the upcoming fixtures for the season:
Sunday 19th July (2PM Start) Eccleshall vs Leek
Sunday 26th July (2PM Start) Leek vs Checkley
Sunday 2nd August (2PM Start) Stone SP vs Leek
