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.'
