Caistor begin their bid for silverware on Monday when they take on the hosts in the 2015 Grimsby Town Knock Out.

Caistor’s match against Grimsby is the second match of the seven-week big-hitting competition which culminates in the final on July 13.

They are hoping for a repeat of last year’s first round match when they knocked out reigning cup holders Louth after a tie, getting the verdict thanks to fewer wickets lost.

Handlesbanken are once again sponsoring the competition while cricket ball manufacturers Reader have provided the pink balls that will be used for the first time.

Matches consist of 16 eight-ball overs per innings with fielding and bowling restrictions.

All games take place at Augusta Street, starting at 6.15pm.

Louth were due to open the competition against Fenner on Monday, while the remaining quarter-final ties pit Lincolnshire Cavaliers against Lincolnshire CCC Development XI on June 15, and Cleethorpes versus Messingham the following Monday.
