Organiser Craig Butland told the Herald: “I came up with the idea on my own and wanted to give it a try this summer after being granted permission from Richard Merriman PCCC Chairman, as well as the County Executive.

“At Pembroke Dock I am always looking for and arranging midweek T20 friendlies against clubs across the County so I thought about setting up this midweek T20 competition – since I have made contact with clubs and broke the news on social media, I have been overwhelmed with the response and the support I have received, I am grateful for it all and I am hoping the competition can be a success leading on to a bigger and longer competition next season.

“The draw has been completed, comprising of three groups – fixtures starting Monday, July 25, with finals day scheduled for SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, at Pembroke Dock CC.
