The draw for the first round of Norfolk's new Sunday cricket cup competition has pitted Diss at home to Norfolk giants Swardeston.
The Norfolk Association of Cricket Officials Invitation Cup, sponsored by Clowes Nash Auctions, will effectively replace the Biss Trophy next season and the draw was made for the first two rounds and the semi-finals. Swardeston and Mallards' recent monopoly on Biss finals will definitely not be extended, as the pair have been drawn to potentially meet at the semi-final stage.
Great Witchingham, who will host the final on Sunday, September 6, have been drawn away to Lowestoft in the first round.
First round losers will go into a shield competition, with the final at Old Buckenham on Sunday, August 30.
