Yorkshire want as many teams as possible to take part and say they will strive to find teams for those players not affiliated to a particular club or league.

Entry costs £25 per team and all money goes to the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation.

The closing date for entries is April 5 and the format for this year’s event will be decided on April 8.

A net session for Grey Fox/over 50s cricketers will be held in the Yorkshire Cricket Centre at Headingley tomorrow (4-5pm).

For details on how to enter the competition, contact Will Saville at Yorkshire CCC on 0113 2033620.
