STORMS may have been the main feature of late, but thoughts are already turning to the 2020 North Wales Cricket League season, which will start in just two months' time.

The action will get underway on Saturday, April 18, with a number of tasty looking encounters.

St Asaph could not wish for a tougher start to their Premier Division tilt.

The Saints will welcome defending North Wales League champions Bangor to Elwy Grove Park on the opening day.

Meanwhile, a testing trip will face Denbigh, who head to Llandudno.

Turning to Division One and there is also an away encounter of the opening day for Ruthin, who will be heading down the A55 to tackle Bangor 2nds.

St Asaph 2nds, who claimed the Division Three crown last season, will open their Division Two programme at Marchwiel and Wrexham.

Also in Division Two this year are Denbigh 2nds, who will play host to Bersham for their first encounter.

A Denbighshire derby will open the Division Four programme for a couple of sides.

On April 18, Llangollen will be playing host to county rivals Ruthin 2nds.

In further action, Rhewl will head to Halkyn 2nds and Mynydd Isa & Maeshafn 2nds have been handed a home encounter versus Llandudno 2nds.
