As announced at last night’s SGM the League is starting their competition for Under 21 players this coming season.

The V3 League is the brainchild of Shark Cricket owner James Menzies, with backing from the North Staffs and South Cheshire League, and is targeting under-21 players.

The eight-a-side competition will see 16 teams split into four zones, with matches being played on six Thursday nights, staring on Thursday, July 16 and running for the following five weeks.

The 15 overs per side V3 matches will be played using a pink ball, with the four group winners progressing to finals day at Meakins on Bank Holiday Monday, August 31 , which will be part of the club’s floodlit cricket week.
