There will be a repeat of last year’s final in the semi-final of the Burghley Park sixes tonight (July 6, from 6pm).
Bourne’s win over the hosts in last night’s quarter-final means they will take on holders Oundle in the first semi-final this evening seeking revenge for their final loss 12 months ago.
It’s Oakham v Stamford Town in the second semi-final after quarter-final wins over Uppingham and Newborough respectively.
Stamford’s Chris Bore was awarded the ‘Champagne Moment’ prize for taking two wickets in the final over of a tight game.

Oakham 82 (S. Morris 39no, E. Tattershall 37no) beat Uppingham 76 (J. Dunford 25).
STAMFORD 69 (C. Bore 23, S. Prentice 21) beat NEWBOROUGH 67 (V. Parvathaneni 23).
