6th November 2017

Cheshire Cobras with their Twenty20 Cup Runners-Up medals

The 2018 BBS Primary Club Heindrich Swanepoel Memorial Cup will be the joint biggest it has ever been, with new teams Cheshire Cobras and Surrey VICC joining the returning Durham Viper Jets and Hampshire VICC in the largest field of entries for around 30 years.

In their first ever match against national level opposition, Surrey face an away trip to Somerset VICC in the first round with the winner of that match to host defending Champions Sussex Sharks in the quarter finals.

In a repeat of the 2017 BCEW Twenty20 Cup Semi Finals London Metro face Cheshire Cobras, this time in the first round, with the winners hosting Warwickshire Bears in the quarter finals. Hampshire and Durham were drawn together in the first round with the winners traveling to Lancashire Lions in the quarter finals.

In the most open quarter of the draw, Nottinghamshire Knights will host Yorkshire Vikings in the first round with an away game for the winners against 2017 South & West Regional League champions Gloucestershire Growlers in the quarter finals.

In the BCEW David Townley Memorial Twenty20 Cup Quarter Finals the headline ties see Somerset VICC host Warwickshire Bears in a repeat of the 2014 final, and Lancashire Lions drawn against Sussex Sharks in a repeat of the 2015 final. Elsewhere, Yorkshire Vikings will take on London Metro and Northants Steelbacks will host Nottinghamshire Knights.

The BCEW South & West Regional Twenty20 Cup sees the top three from the 2017 South & West Regional League drawn in the same half of the competition with the winners of Kent Spitfires versus Dorset Dolphins to host Gloucestershire Growlers in the semi finals. Two-time defending Champions Surrey VICC face Hampshire VICC with the winner to host Berkshire Stags or Metro Devils in the semi finals.
