Bourne CC players celebrate their Jaidka Cup Final success last season.

Only eight teams have entered the area’s most prestigious Twenty/20 tournament this season and geography has dictated there will be one group of five and another of three.

Bourne will open their defence against Deeping in a group that also contains Nassington, Castor and Peterborough Town.

Cambs League rivals Wisbech, Ramsey and March contest the second group (they will play each other twice) with the top two qualifying for the semi-finals.
