The fifteen clubs competing in the LRC competition for 2016 are listed below and have been split into three divisions with each club playing each other once (either home or way). The home teams will be doing all they can to create the Matchday Experience ‘Blast’ atmosphere to emulate the professional game, with coloured clothing, flashing bails, music and the creation of a festival atmosphere at their club.
At the end of the league games the top placed side in each division will go through to a semi-final with the fourth semi-finalist coming from a play-off between the teams finishing second in their division. Semi-finals will be played at a club venue with a 3rd/4th play-off and the final taking place at the Fischer County Ground, Grace Road on August 14, 2016.
Clubs will again be supported by the Play-Cricket.com website, providing players with statistics, fixtures and results. For more information go to www.ecb.co.uk/U19T20 or use #U19T20 on Twitter.
