Here are the details of the Hampshire Invitation Cup
Hampshire Invitation Cup
Following the movement of clubs both in and out of the above competition, the organising Committee have now arranged details of the Cup.
There will be an initial group stage with the 19 competing clubs organized in 3 groups of 5 & 1 group of 4 which are regionalised. These groups are set out below.
After the group stage the competition will split into 2 knockout groups with the top two teams in each group going through to the main cup & the 3rd, 4th & 5th teams taking part into a supplementary cup. The draw for that stage has not yet taken place.
The group stage is planned to take place with 5 match dates (mostly on Saturdays) between April 12th & May 1st but there is flexibility within the rules for clubs to agree alternative match dates. Final approvals are being given to the rules and these will be distributed later this week. Fixtures will also be circulated later this week.
The groups are:
East Cowes Vics
Hythe & Dibden
(a 5th team will be added to this group if a late entry received)
Bemerton Heath Harlequins
New Milton Town
