GLOUCESTERSHIRE’S Jelf U16 T20 finals day takes place at Bedminster on Sunday.

An action-packed schedule gets underway with the hosts facing Thornbury (10am) while on an adjoining pitch the other semi-final will see Lechlade locking horns with Cheltenham.

The final will follow at around 1pm.

Two teams, meanwhile, have now qualified for the U19 T20 finals day at Stroud on September 8.

Newcomers Twyford House went through with an exciting home success over Dumbleton with only one ball to spare. And Bristol YMCA overcame Winterbourne by nine wickets to also book their passage.

Alex Wilson (2-14 from four) stood out for Twyford as Dumbleton were pegged back to 136-7 from their 20.

And Twyford then judged their reply perfectly to reach finals days, captain Henry King leading from the front with 49 (seven fours and a six) before George Fowler and Deano Bailey shared an unbroken stand of 48 to wrap up the win. Bailey cracked the winning boundary to finish on 27 while Fowler was 21 not out.

YMCA, meanwhile, bowled out Winterbourne for 63 ahead of Daz Ahmed (47 not) completing the win.

Bradley Stoke will tonight (Friday) welcome Cheltenham (5pm) in another tie while the final quarter-final – a repeat of last season’s final – sees holders Frocester host Bedminster on Tuesday (6pm).

Progress is also being made, meanwhile, in both the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup and Trophy.

Bristol put their league relegation worries to one side to overcome Frocester and reach the semi-finals of the cup.

Spinner Louie Shaw (3-18 from eight) restricted Frocester to 228-9 off 40 after winning the toss, Andy Solomons top scoring on 65.

Rain meant Bristol, who are battling to avoid dropping down from Premier One of the West of England Premier League, were then set a revised target of 200 from 35 overs.

And that was the signal for Ross Mclean (75) and Shaw (69) to take charge with an unbroken stand of 128 to see their side through. Next up is a trip to holders Bishopston on a date to be confirmed.

Awaiting the winners of this game in the final are Cheltenham who overcame Knowle in another weather-affected tie.

Josh Breed’s 74 lifted Cheltenham to an all out total of before Knowle fell short of a revised target of 155, being bowled out for 107.

The Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Trophy final, meanwhile, will be between Hawkesbury Upton and Charlton Kings at Frenchay on September 1.

Hawkesbury restricted Langford to 136-7 before breezing through by nine wickets, Leighton Collins unbeaten on 59.

And Kings bowled out Kingsholm for 113, Matt Luxton capturing 5-20 from his eight, before advancing by three wickets with almost six overs to spare.
