Cornwall Under 20s will begin their campaign with two home games against Berkshire and Gloucestershire before an away trip against Hampshire in their pool games for this season’s Under 20 County Championship.
Hampshire have replaced Devon, who were relegated to the Shield competition at the end of last season’s pool games.
Sunday Feb 4 CORNWALL V BERKSHIRE (HOME) venue TBC
Sunday Feb 25 CORNWALL V GLOUCESTERSHIRE (HOME) venue TBC
Sunday Mar 18 Hampshire v Cornwall (Away) venue TBC
If Cornwall finish in the top two places and qualify for the quarter-finals, that will be played on Sunday 1 April 2017. A first place in their pool will guarantee a home tie, finish runner-up and they will face a trip to a side in the other Southern pool from Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire or Kent.
The semi-finals are scheduled for Sunday 15 April, with the Final at Twickenham on Sunday 6 May.
