Wisbech Town reached the John Wilcox Cup final with a very good 29-run win against Oundle on Sunday.

A weakened Wisbech side made a good start with openers Carl Pope 81 and Danny Haynes 21.

They did falter a little after that but Dom Stannard 19, Danny Emmington and Ivan Burgess 57 led the recovery to take them to 244 all out.

Oundle were also not at their strongest but also got off to a good start before Matt Parrin claimed three wickets for 16 runs.

Kieran Haynes and Ivan Burgess also picked up three wickets as Oundle were eventually bowled out for 215.
