Horsford's second Norfolk 20/20 Cup competition gets under way next week - with a dash more colour than last year's event.

Beccles face Norwich in the opening match, at Manor Park next Tuesday evening.

“This year there will be coloured kit, black sightscreens and a white ball which will hopefully add to the appeal of the competition,” said Horsford director of cricket Tony Selby.

Last year's finalists have been kept apart in the group stages of the competition.

Holders Vauxhall Mallards will meet hosts Horsford, Great Witchingham and Saham Toney in Group B of the competition, which is being staged over six and a half weeks.

Last year's runners-up, Norwich, take on Beccles, Old Buckenham and Fakenham in Group A.

Group winners and runners-up will progress to the semi-finals.

Mallards beat Norwich by 82 runs in the inaugural final in front of 500 spectators last July to claim the trophy and £1,000 cash prize. The tournament, sponsored by Aylsham Bathroom and Kitchen Centre, will involve 15 matches.
