On Sunday, Worcestershire CCC Academy (Under-18s) will launch their ECB County T20 campaign with a doubleheader against Gloucestershire and Glamorgan at Hawkesbury CC.
It is the beginning of a hectic period in which they will play 12 T20 matches in three-and-a-half weeks.
The Academy will be looking to repeat the sort of success they enjoyed in reaching the Birmingham Premier League Graham Williamson Trophy final.
This summer, they will also be competing in ECB competitions in the other game formats.
There will be five three-day games and also a 50 over knockout tournament in ensuring the Academy play plenty of competitive cricket.
A 12 strong squad has been announced for tomorrow, and Joe Stanley will captain the side, with Suhayl Iqbal keeping wicket.
