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.
