Suffolk will face Lincolnshire in both their opening Unicorns Minor Counties Championship fixture of the season and in their inaugural Unicorns T20 Competition match.

Lincolnshire will visit the Victory Ground at Bury St Edmunds for the three-day Unicorns Minor Counties Championship match starting on Sunday, June 7.

Suffolk will also face the same opponents in the Unicorns T20 Competition which is being run for their first time in 2015.

Suffolk have been placed in the same group as Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, the latter two meeting in the other match also on Sunday, May 31 at Fenner’s in Cambridge.

The winners of the two matches will then meet in the regional final later in the day, with the overall victors then progressing to the play-offs on Sunday, June 28th. The final will be held at Banbury a fortnight later.

Suffolk, who will be led by new skipper Tom Huggins after Justin Bishop decided to step down at the end of last season, start their fixtures with a friendly against Essex II at Billericay on Sunday, April 19th.

Their opening Group 2 game in the Unicorns KO Trophy will be against Norfolk at Ipswich School a week later on Sunday, April 26.
