Matches and fixtures

This year the two main leagues have decided to extend their junior seasons, starting a little later and going through until the end of August so matches will run from May 14th to August 31st.

Two new Premier T20 leagues have been created at U13 and U15 level and a T30 league will feature our U11 side.

Sadly the traditional West Surrey cup is no more but the ECB National knockout for the U13 and 15s and the Surrey Cups for the U17 and U19 Blast (both of which we won last season) will feature once again.

Dates for your diary

Guildford Cricket Festival – this features Surrey v Essex in the County Championship starting on Friday June 9th.

In addition two Women’s super league games will be played during August.

Full details will be available on the website shortly.
