By NEPL Editor

The North East Premier League Junior Competition fixtures have been released ready for another action packed summer of North East Premier League Junior Cricket.

Following on from the success of the past few seasons the Junior Competitions will continue with the same format with the Under 11s, 13s and 15s all playing group knockout games in the Summer holidays.

The Under 11s competition takes place in the first week of the Summer holidays with 8 groups of teams competing over 1 day for a chance to reach the quarter finals. The winners of each group will then face a quarter final tie against a following group winner for a chance to play in Finals Day.

This format is the same with Under 13s competition, which takes place in the second week of the Summer Holidays. Similar to the Under 11s competition, the Under 13s competition sees groups of teams competing over 1 day for a chance to reach the quarter finals.

The Under 15s competition works different to the Under 11s and Under 13s, where clubs compete against other clubs throughout the summer. The Under 15s competition features 5 groups: Pot 1 Group A, Pot 1 Group B, Pot 2 Group A, Pot 2 Group B and Pot 3. The winners Pot 1 A/ B and Pot 2 A/B will play off for an overall group winner.
