THE North Wales League fixtures have been announced - but the impact coronavirus has on the 2020 campaign remains to be seen.

Just last week the England and Wales Cricket Board issued a statement saying: “It is with sadness and reluctance that we recommend that all forms of recreational cricket are for now suspended.

“This extends to training, pre-season friendlies and any associated cricket activity.”

Quite what happens from this point remains to be seen, but the Liverpool Competition has already confirmed that there will be no promotion and relegation.

Due to the delay in starting the season, a school of thought is that every team plays each other once, which could mean the fixtures for the first-half of the campaign go ahead, but at a later date.

The season was set to start on Saturday, April 18 with Brymbo looking to kick-off what is hoped will be a much-improved campaign at home to Pwllheli.

Brymbo survived relegation by 17 points under the leadership of James Claybrook, pictured, last term, but have strengthened their playing options by bringing talented all-rounder Connor Davies back to the club, while wicket-keeper/batsman Jack Oldham, who has represented Cheshire at several age groups, has also arrived at Tan-y-Fron.

Gresford, Northop and newly-promoted Llay Welfare are all due to start on the road. Gresford are making the long trip to fellow new boys Conwy, with Northop heading to Menai Bridge and Llay kicking off their first season back in the top-flight at Mochdre.

Reigning champions Bangor make their way to St Asaph and Llandudno entertain Denbigh.

In Division One, Gwersyllt Park, who will be looking to go at least one better than last year’s third-placed finish, have home advantage over newly promoted Halkyn, led by Gareth Thomas.

There’s a tasty looking Flintshire derby as relegated Connah’s Quay play host to Mold, while Pontblyddyn, who will be aiming to return to the top-flight at the first time of asking, entertain Dolgellau and Hawarden Park face Llanrwst at Moor Lane.

Elsewhere, Bethesda face Abergele and Ruthin visit Bangor Seconds, who finished as runners-up in Division Two last term.

Bersham and Carmel replaced Bangor and Halkyn in the third-tier, the duo set to start the 2020 season on the road at newly promoted Denbigh Seconds and Mold Seconds respectively.

Marchwiel and Wrexham entertain the other promoted side in the shape of St Asaph Seconds, while Buckley host Gresford Seconds, Northop Seconds face Menai Bridge Seconds and Llay Welfare clash with Mochdre Seconds.

There are scheduled to be just three matches on the opening weekend of the Division Three season - despite the league consisting of 11 teams - which was due to start a week later than the remainder of the pyramid.

Newly-promoted sides Caernarfon and Conwy Seconds are both in action, the duo heading to Buckley Seconds and Gwersyllt Seconds respectively, while Corwen host Pontblyddyn Seconds.

The XI team Division Four also begins with just three matches, as Halkyn Seconds host Rhewl, Mynydd Isa and Maeshafn Seconds entertain Llandudno Seconds and Ruthin Seconds go to Llangollen.
