The NCU has confirmed an extensive series of fixtures for the MTB Emerging Knights, throughout June and July.

MTB Northern Knights head coach Simon Johnston said, 'With an increased player pool, it is vital that we provide our up and coming young players with as much tough, high quality cricket as possible.

"A massive thanks must go to our sponsors, MTB solicitors, as without their support we wouldn't be able to provide opportunities for our young players such as this."
