The Community 20:20 Cricket League will starts its fifth year with an exciting new format, with promotion and relegation.

The Community 20:20 Cricket League embark on their fifth year with an exciting new format for 2017.

Having started with just four teams in 2013 and, with the continued support of Clevedon Cricket Club, they will be entertaining eight this year and will have two divisions with promotion and relegation at the conclusion.

Defending champions Clevedon RFC are in Division 1, with The Royal Oak, The Old Inn and The Bangladesh Warriors. Swiss Valley, play-off winners in 2016 are in Division 2 with Clevedon Round Table, The Triangle Misfits and The Gig Club.

This new structure should make the matches more competitive and ultimately even more entertaining for the crowds.

Once all the divisional matches have been played, matches between teams finishing third and fourth in both divisions are scheduled for August 13, followed by teams finishing first and second on August 27.

It should be an exciting season of cricket which all starts on May 14 at 1pm, when Swiss Valley take on Clevedon Round Table, followed at 4pm by Clevedon RFC entertaining The Old Inn.

Full details of all the fixtures and contact details of the eight team captains, if new players want to get involved, can be found on the website: A warm welcome awaits players and supporters on all match days at Dial Hill.
