NATIONAL COUNTIES TROPHY Quarter-final date and draw

NCCA-Logo MasterNational Counties Trophy holders Berkshire will face Wales NC in this season’s quarter-finals on Sunday July 17. 

Berkshire beat Wales in last season’s semi-finals at Port Talbot and will have home advantage this time as the Falkland club in Newbury has been confirmed for the quarter-final tie. 



NCCA-Logo MasterThere may be an unfamiliar look to Berkshire’s side this season but their coach, Tom Lambert, has warned that does not mean they should be written off as they begin their defence of the National Counties Trophy today. 

Four key members of the squad that won eight pieces of silverware in five seasons – brothers James and Richard Morris, Stewart Davison and Chris Peploe – all retired at the end of last season but Berkshire still have a core group of players who contributed to a bulging trophy cabinet.
