Tonight’s 1st Choice Royal Taxi Spalding Town midweek Twenty/20 final promises to be a thriller after an incredible final fixture in the group phase of the competition.

Royal Taxi B booked a date with Spalding under-23 in the final with a sensational show against Long Sutton in a ‘winner takes all’ showdown.

Sutton held the advantage ahead of the 16-over match, as they needed only a draw to proceed through.

They won the toss and elected to bowl – but were punished by a blistering barrage from the big-hitting Royals.

Every Sutton bowler went around the park as the strong Taxi team posted a whopping 187, leaving the group leaders with a near-impossible run chase.

They gave it a go, but Sutton closed on a respectable 127, which sent Royal Taxi through to the final.

The final (Friday) will get under way at 6pm at the Memorial Field, with the club bar open and a decent crowd expected.

Organiser Russell Whitworth said: “We hope to see a good crown supporting what we expect to be our own local big bash.”
