We conclude our preview of this weekend’s SDCA T20 finals by casting the spotlight on our first grade blockbuster.

There’s every chance Valley will be aiming for a third title on Sunday when the top tier final commences (around) 2pm on Sunday at Howe Park.

However Daniel Storey’s men must first conquer ladder leader JPC, a force yet to face defeat in the first grade T20 format.

BACK TO BACK: Valley will hope to add to their recent success in the regular format while JPC look for a T20 clean sweep.
