2017 Regional fixtures announced

Cricket Scotland has announced the 2017 Regional Series fixtures for the coming season.

This year’s format will follow on from 2016 when Cricket Scotland expanded the Pro Team structure for the men’s game from two to three teams.

The Pro-50 competition will begin with last season’s double-winning champions Eastern Knights taking on the Western Warriors at Grange on April 31st before the Caledonian Highlanders entertain the Knights at Forthill on May 1st.

The T20 Blitz competition will see three sets of double-headers held throughout the summer, with each home team having the opportunity to host a set of fixtures and will take place from the beginning in July, ending in early September.

The Eastern Knights will play their matches in Stockbridge, Edinburgh at the Grange, the Western Warriors will be based at Clydesdale Cricket Club, Titwood in Glasgow and the Caledonian Highlanders at Forfarshire Cricket Club in Dundee.

Cricket Scotland’s National Performance Coach Toby Bailey said: “The 2017 Pro Series will be more competitive than ever as every team has bolstered their squad throughout the off-season.

“There are some quality young players coming through with the player base at this level growing all the time.

“The tournament will provide these players with a chance to produce winning performances for their respective teams and I am looking forward to seeing some exciting games during the summer.”
