Sussex with the 2023 Twenty20 Cup winners trophy

Sussex to face Metro in Primary Club Cup the Highlight of 2024 Cup Draws

Sussex Sharks defence of the BCEW David Townley Memorial Twenty20 Cup starts with an away trip to Kent Spitfires in the first round. The winner of that match faces a home quarter final against debutants Dorset County VICT or Southern Development League champions Berkshire Stags.

If they can defeat Yorkshire Vikings in the first round 2023 T20 Cup runners up Lancashire Lions will host 2022 T20 Cup winners Somerset VICC in the quarter finals.

2023 BCEW National League winners London Metro face two trips to the north if they want to reach T20 Finals Day, as they head to Cheshire Cobras in the first round, with the winner away to Bradford & District in the quarter finals.

2021 Twenty20 Cup winners Northants Steelbacks travel to face Surrey VICC in the only quarter final not dependent on first round results.

In a change to previous years the T20 Cup semi final draw will be based on the quarter finals as detailed in the full draw below.

The Primary Club Cup draw has put 4 of the 5 former finalists in the same half of the draw.

The headline tie sees London Metro host Sussex Sharks, with the winners away to either Somerset VICC or Yorkshire Vikings in the semi finals.

In the other half of the draw the only team ever to have reached the final are Northants Steelbacks, they host Lancashire Lions in the quarter finals, the winner of that tie will face a first time semi finalist in the winner of Surrey VICC v Kent Spitfires.

In another change there will be no BCEW Southern Development Twenty20 Cup in 2024.

Joe Harrison and Phil Daniels shake hands in celebration.
