Peterborough Town Newflames make their first appearance in the 2015 Jaidka Cup tonight (May 20) when they face a must-win match against Nassington Knights at Bretton Gate (6pm).

For a club of their stature Town’s Jaidka Cup record has been awful in recent seasons and they will be out of the competition if they lose this evening. For the first time, the early stages of the Twenty/20 competition involve three-team groups, but Nassington have already beaten Castor in Zone C so victory tonight would send the villagers through to the semi-finals.

Holders Royal Challengers Bournegalore will also advance to the semi-finals with a win at neighbours Market Deeping Dragons tonight. Wisbech Wildcats and Ketton Lions will also qualify if they win their matches tonight at Ramsey Raiders and Barnack respectively.
