T20 specialists Bourne saw their hopes of a trophy treble dashed after defeat in Monday night's Stamford KO Shield semi-final at Uppingham Town.

Having already booked their place in the finals of the Stamford Charity Cup and Jaidka Cup, Bourne's bid for a hat-trick was ended after a six-wicket defeat at Castle Hill.

The Lincs Premier Division side had made 173-6 from their 20 overs with Jordan Temple thumping an unbeaten 66 which included six fours and three sixes.

Sam Harby had earlier hit 46 while opener Quewin O'Connor made 42 against a home attack that saw Scott Green grab 3-46 and Danny Dumford take 2-28.

A solid top order showing inspired Uppingham's run chase as opener Sam Hodson (40) and Alex Ashwin (22) set the ball rolling.

Harry Butchart then blasted 67 before an unbeaten 20 not out from skipper Jamie Dumford steered Town home with 10 balls to spare as they gained revenge for last week's defeat in the semi-finals of Stamford Charity Cup.

Uppingham will now face Castor in the final after they defeated Kings Keys by four wickets.

Stuart Dockerill claimed 4-20 as Kings Keys were bowled out for 104 with Mark Wheat (21) and Reece Smith (25) then top-scoring to see Castor to victory with four balls to spare.

Bourne play the final of the Jaidka Cup on Wednesday night when they take on Ramsey at Peterborough Town (6pm start).
