CHELTENHAM will entertain Downend on Sunday August 14 for a place in the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup final after a comfortable 54-run win away to holders Frocester.

Opener Kieran Smith (73) and Liam Walker (52) along with 34 from Jacques Sharam helped Cheltenham reach 216-9, Tom Morris capturing 3-47.

And Frocester, who on the same day qualified for the national quarter-finals of the ECB’s National Club T20, were then bowled out for 162.

Opener James Cook (71) was the only batsman to establish himself at the crease as Pete Woodland captured 5-16 from 5.4 overs.

In the other half of the draw, Winterbourne will welcome Thornbury, also on Sunday.

Downend, meanwhile, are also through to the semi-finals of the St Austell Brewery Gloucestershire Trophy after their 2nds triumphed by six wickets away to Gloucester AIW Sports.

Richard Pandya (3-9) and Joe Tolman (3-28, both from eight) starred as the home side were rushed out for only 105 before opener Ben Ford compiled an unbeaten 65.

Next up for Downend is a trip to Great Rissington. Langford are already through to the final courtesy of an eight-wicket success away to Kingsholm.

Adrian Jones’ late unbeaten 56 lifted Kingsholm to a total of 189-8, Liam Court finishing with 3-44 from eight before Matt Clark (88 not) and Harry Stevens (57 not) steered Langford through.
