Finding out information about this year's competition on either Play-cricket or individual clubs' social media is proving to be a struggle but there is an alphabetical list of 131 clubs on the website, some of whom may have already been knocked out in Play-Off matches to whittle the field down to 32 teams competing in 8 Area Finals but no results given or fixtures listed as yet. It would appear from the way the format is listed on the competitions page that the 8 Area winners will go through to a North and South Regional Finals day rather than four individual Quarter-Finals, as was the case when the cup was last played for in 2019, with the two winners competing in the National Final, which will possibly be part of a double header with the final of the T20 Plate, for which the 1st Round has been drawn and is due to be played on Sunday 1st August:

Croston v BYE
Aston Hall v Notts & Arnold Amateur
Newcastle City v Carlisle 2nd XI
Quatt v Wolverhampton 2nd XI
Bedworth v Peppard Stoke Row
Waltham v BYE
Pershore v Llangennech
Bradley Stoke v Dorset winners (either Sherborne or Chalke Valley)

No start time given for these games apart from 00:00 so maybe will assume midday until hearing otherwise. Any more info on either competition will be most welcome.

Some potential doubles thrown up:

Newcastle City with South Northumberland
Alton with Wokingham (first Semi at one, Final at the other)
Ealing with Wokingham (first Semi at one, Final at the other, M4 closures permitting)
Aston Hall with Final at Lindum
Port Talbot v Potterne with Neyland v Houghton Main in National Village Cup SF if prepared to miss first hour of latter
Alton v Eastbourne with rest of Calmore Sports v Stoke Green in National Village Cup SF, which is my plan weather permitting.

Scrub this double as a possibility. The NVC Semi-Final at Neyland has been put back a week with Houghton Main hosting Alvanley in rescheduled Quarter-Final this Sunday which may be possible to double with the first T20 Semi-Final at Lindum.

Newcastle City is 1:30pm; Bedworth and Bradley Stoke both 2pm according to Play-cricket. That leaves just Pershore still to declare their start time.

Alton v Tunbridge Wells was rained off again so the Group 4 Area Final was decided by Bowl Out which was won by Tunbridge Wells (can't find the score) who advance to South Regional Finals Day at Basingstoke where they will meet Slough in the first Semi-Final at 10am.

1pm start. Still no news on the draw and dates for the Plate Quarter-Finals but I was told the winners of this tie are home to Chalke Valley so maybe the Quarter-Finals are in the order the draw appears on the Play-cricket site.

I have it from two different reliable sources that this is wrong on play-cricket. The final is in fact at Northampton.
