DONCASTER Town completed a Sheffield double to earn a place in the Yorkshire League T20 Finals Day.

Nick Morley’s men lost in disappointing fashion at home to Sheffield United on Saturday and then missed out on the chance to move off the bottom of the league when their Bank Holiday Monday clash with Barnsley was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

But, sandwiched in between, the Town Field side got their revenge over United in the shortened version of the game by beating them on their own ground in the first stage of the ECB National T20 Cup.

And Doncaster saved their best for last as they followed up their victory over United by easily disposing of Sheffield Collegiate in the Group B final to set up a regional last four clash with Hull at North Marine Road.
