The County Cup and County Trophy were re-launched in 2013 in an attempt to bring more cricket back to Sunday afternoons. With slight changes made the results have been fantastic, with 30 plus teams entering each year as a result of the following split:
County Cup – All WEPL League Clubs + any Gloucestershire Club who wishes to play in this competition.
County Trophy – All teams in B&D, GCCL and their feeder leagues may enter
The County Cup is sponsored by Stuart Canvas, leading suppliers of cricket equipment, covers & accessories. In 2016 the final was played at the home of Gloucestershire CCC, the Brightside Ground, Bristol, which provided a wonderful setting for such a prestigious game.
