BRISTOL welcome Frocester on Sunday (1.30pm) in the last remaining quarter-final of the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup.

The victors will be away to holders Bishopston on August 18 when Knowle will be home to Cheltenham – nine-wicket conquerors last weekend of Stroud who were hustled out for only 76 by Liam Walker (3-7) and Jake Cropper (3-15) with Hassan Dahar also capturing 2-5.

The final will be staged on September 8 at a neutral venue.

Hambrook, meanwhile, travel on Sunday to Langford in the quarter-finals of the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Trophy with the winners away to Hawkesbury Upton. Frenchay will be the venue for the final on September 1.

Gloucestershire host champions Yorkshire on Sunday (1pm) in the quarter-finals of the ECB Over 50 Championship.

Yorkshire, who also lifted the title in 2017, have won 28 of their last 29 games. Their only blip in the last three years was a six-run group reverse last month against Lancashire who, coincidentally, last year knocked out Gloucestershire on fewer wickets lost.

The Gloucestershire line-up again features former county captain and England one-day international Mark Alleyne who completed an unbeaten century in the last 16 victory over Cornwall.

Fellow England Over 50 international Martyn Bowyer, of Shirehampton, comes into the side while Kerry Lock, of Old Bristolians Westbury, will keep wicket.

Gloucestershire: Andy Chidgey, Dave Millard, Mark Alleyne, Martyn Bowyer, Hugh Leeke, Bill Johnson, Jem Brooks (captain), Chris Trembath, Paul Baker, John Courtney, Kerry Lock.
