And the first semi-final, which starts at 6.30pm, will pit 2001 champions Rossett Celts against 2009 champions Connah’s Quay.

At the same time the second semi, between Cuddington and Hoole Alex, will take place at Cherry Grove in Chester with Hoole bidding for a 10th cup victory.

Games will be played in accordance with the British Crown Green Bowling Association dress code.
