In the County Cup, the pick of round one sees a repeat of last year’s final with 2016 winners drawn against runners-up Thornbury. 15 teams have entered in total including 2014 & 2015 West of England Premier League (WEPL) champions Frocester who travel to Tewkesbury. One of the other ties to look out for is the all-tier-two clash between former National Village Knock out Cup finalists Rockhampton and Bishopston.
In the County Trophy both the 2016 winners Langford and runners-up Downend 2nd XI have received a bye from the preliminary round. One of the most exciting matches to have come out of the draw looks set to be the local derby between 2014 winners Old Down and neighbours Alveston.
The County Cup is open to all Gloucestershire clubs playing in WEPL while the County Trophy is for sides from the Gloucestershire County Cricket League and Bristol and District Cricket Association League.
