North West Senior Cup draw on Tuesday
The draw for the first round of this year’s North West Senior Cup will take place next Tuesday afternoon (8 June) at Bready Cricket Club. Plans are in place to have the draw covered live on BBC Radio Foyle therefore the exact time will be confirmed at the start of the week.
This year’s renewal will revert back to the 50-over format after last year’s competition was restricted to T20 due to the pandemic. Players and supporters will also be buoyed by the fact that as long as circumstances allow, the final will once again be a two innings affair.
There will be 16 teams in the region’s Blue Riband competition this season after The Nedd agreed to take part as long as that didn’t prevent them from playing in their own divisional competition.
The semi-final draws for the White Horse Hotel T20 Cup will also take place on Tuesday while cup draws in Leagues 1-4 will take place after the completion of their respective T20 tournaments.
Venues for this year’s finals will be confirmed at the end of next week.
