Cricket fans should be in for a real treat at The Maer ground, Exmouth on Sunday (July 29) with the staging of the Devon County Twenty20 Finals Day.
On Thursday night both Sidmouth and Heathcoat won their respective knock-out ties to take their place at Exmouth.
They will join Plymouth and Bovey Tracey in the Finals Day which sees play get underway at 10.30am.
The running order for finals day is Plymouth against Sidmouth (10.30am) in the first semi-final and Bovey Tracey against Heathcoat (1.15pm) in the second. The final is scheduled for 4.30pm.
Competition organisers are hoping for a bumper turn out from spectators as there are no counter attractions such as Devon games this weekend.
The planned game between Budleigh Otters and Devon Lions has been called off.
Admission is free, although there will be a £3.50 car parking charge, which will be waived if drivers can show a membership card from any of the teams taking part.
Host club Exmouth will be offering an array of drinks and refreshments for spectators.
