The popular NW Brown Norfolk Twenty20 competition has been given an overhaul for the new season.

Organisers have cut the number of teams involved from eight to six, which means the battle for honours this summer will be between the county's five East Anglian Premier League teams and Alliance Premier Division champions Brooke.

'We decided to reduce the amount of clubs being invited as we had a few postponements due to various reasons last season,' explained Mike Lincoln of the organising committee. 'This will also allow the ground to recover and reduce the pressure on groundstaff and officials as the facilities were getting overused due to the amount of activity undertaken throughout the summer.'

The competition, which feature two groups of three, gets under way on June 7 with Mallards taking on Brooke. The final is scheduled for Friday, July 21.
