County League to face Bristol rivals in challenge
THE GCB Challenge Trophy will be up for grabs when the Gloucestershire County and Bristol & District leagues meet at Chipping Sodbury on Sunday (1pm).
It’s an intriguing clash between competitions of equal standing – the leading sides in both are promoted each year to tier three in WEPL.
Already there are hopes that the fixture will become an annual event with the Bristol & District hosting a return meeting next summer.
The County League team will be led by spinner Jamie Rendell on his home ground and his side features players drawn from a total of 11 clubs spread across four different league divisions.
County League: Mike Toolis (Lydney), Jay Westwood (Hawkesbury Upton), Mark Burton (Poulton), Sam Nichols (Chipping Campden), Chris Williams (Sheepscombe), Josh Loade (Aston Ingham), Hamza Shahzad (Gloucester AIW Sports), Jamie Rendell (Chipping Sodbury), James Tunnicliffe (Thornbury), Tom Hayward (Apperley), George Dolling (Cam).
