The county's top cricketers
"Hopefully, people who have never have been to the cricket club before will be attracted by the high standard of exciting cricket on display from the county's top cricketers," said Scott Higgins, holiday home sales and marketing manager at Salop Leisure, who have recently signed a new three-year sponsorship deal with Shrewsbury Cricket Club.
"It would also be great if cricket fans supported Shrewsbury Town when the cricket season finishes. Both clubs help to put our town on the map and our company is proud to be associated with them as a sponsor."
Ed Foster from Shrewsbury Cricket Club said: "Twenty20 cricket is very popular around the world, so it's great that there's a high quality competition in Shropshire for both the players and spectators to enjoy. There's a lot of friendly rivalry between the four participating clubs, which will undoubtedly contribute to some tense and exciting cricket not to be missed."
