Nantwich Cricket Club, Whitehouse Lane

Nantwich CC 1sts will begin the defence of their ECB Cheshire County title at home to Macclesfield on April 20.

The 2013 season fixture list was released this week, handing Nantwich a home start at Whitehouse Lane.

The three-times champions will be hoping to start the campaign the way they finished the 2012 season which saw a late surge clinch the title.

Nantwich have also been handed another chance to host Cheshire in a minor counties championship encounter next season.

The Whitehouse Lane ground will see Cheshire take on Shropshire in a three-day match on August 18 to 20.

Nantwich skipper Andy Newton has also been involved in re-designing the T20 competition in Cheshire.

The plan would see 36 clubs split into nine geographical groups of four, playing three games each between mid-May and late June.

The games would be spread over six weeks, each club having at least one home game.  Winners of groups 1-7 would qualify for the quarter-finals in July, while group 8 and 9 winners would play off for the last place.

The four quarter-final winners then go through to Finals Day, which is at Timperley on Sunday, July 28.
