Young cricketers in South Norfolk have been given a new platform to display their skills.
The South Norfolk Community League, which already operates competitions at Under-13 and U15 levels, is expanding to include U11 and U17 leagues.
The eight-a-side, 16-over format has proved popular with the existing age groups and the same rules will apply to the new competitions.
Competition secretary Joe Harris said: 'The main purpose of the South Norfolk Community League is to provide league cricket for youth players who would otherwise be denied this opportunity, either because they play in a large club where places are limited, or because they belong to a small club not yet strong enough for Alliance competition.'
Garboldisham are the current holders of the U15 trophy, with the inaugural U13 cup being lifted last year by Great Ellingham. The league currently only operates in the south of the county, but there are plans to expand in the future.
Clubs wishing to take part need to enter before the deadline on Friday, March 14. Further details are available from the league's website, www.southnorfolkcommunityleague.co.uk
