Round 1 involved only two matches but neither was played. The Harefield v Datchet match of 7th May was conceded by Datchet so Harefield progressed to Round 2. Wokingham vs Burnham was rescheduled to the 13th May but Burnham conceded on Saturday 12th May so Wokingham progressed to play Henley at the Banbury multi-round.
Rounds 2 and 3 were played consecutively on the 28th May with 3 matches at a single venue to minimise both the number of days of additional cricket and the impact of Minor Counties T20 matches.
The venues were;-
Banbury - Buckingham Town beat Banbury and then Wokingham lost to Henley. Buckingham Town then lost to Henley in the quarter final.
Finchampstead - Amersham conceded their match against Slough and Oxford lost to Finchampstead. Slough then beat Finchampstead in the quarter final.
Aston Rowant - Aston Rowant beat Chesham but were then expelled from the competition for fielding an ineligible player. Great & Little Tew beat Horspath in the second match.
The quarter final between Great & Little Tew and Chesham was scheduled for June 17th but was then conceded by Chesham.
Tring Park - Thame Town conceded their match to Tring Park and Harefield conceded their match to High Wycombe so the only match was the quarter final between Tring Park and High Wycombe, with High Wycombe emerging the winners.
Finals day for the HCPCL will be at Harefield on the 22nd July with the winners progressing to ‘Area’ finals on the 29th July.
The first match of the day will be the semi-final between Henley and Slough, starting at 10:30. 1h 15m is allowed to the start of the 20th over, so a full game will last around 2h 55m including 15 break between innings and ground marking. The second semi-final between Great & Little Tew and High Wycombe will therefore start around 13:40, but may move forward if the first match ends early. A rest break of 30 minutes is allowed between the end of the second semi-final and the final.
