North West Cricket Union release T20 fixtures
The North West Cricket Union fixtures for the start of the 2021 season have been released, as players and supporters around the Union can now look forward to "live" cricket in the coming weeks.
As anticipated, the season starts with the Best Western White Horse Hotel T20 competition and Donemana last year's outright winners, are set to host St Johnston in their first game on May 8th.
Brigade, beaten in the senior decider by the Holm club in 2020 will have a busy first weekend as they play Killyclooney on Saturday before travelling to Strabane Park, 24 hours later.
Coleraine will be keen to build on a decent season as they head to Bonds Glen on the opening day while Eglinton entertain Fox Lodge in the same group.
Game of the day for many will be at the Rectory where Glendermott host Bready, although Newbuildings versus Burndennett will be another tough one to call.
Ballyspallen take on Ardmore in the other tie in the first round of matches with a 2pm start time at all venues, unless stated.
