Cookham Dean progress to Julian Cup final after victory over Windsor 

Cookham Dean progressed to their first Julian Cup final since the mid 1980s on Thursday night after beating Windsor by 14 runs at Burnham CC.

The TVL Division 1 side will face favourites and current cup holders Burnham in the final at Boyne Hill CC tomorrow night (Tuesday). 

The Dean finally got the better of Windsor in a semi-final tie that had to be rearranged twice because of poor weather. 

Batting first The Dean recovered from a shaky start with the bat to put on 151 from their 20 overs. 

Openers Chris Marrow (9) and Mark Lowden (2) were dismissed cheaply but more assured contributions arrived further down the order, most notably from Greg Davis, who top scored with 40, while Yash Rastogi found the boundary three times before retiring on 24.

Tom Hartridge was the pick of the Windsor bowling attack, taking 3-30. 

Windsor's response got off to a flyer thanks to Kristan Baumgartner (26) and Austn Ambrose (33) but their run chase was brought to a shuddering halt by Simon Foster, who took 3-13. 

Chris Dixon gave Windsor some hope with 22, before he was caught by Davis off the bowling of Arun Brar (2-25), while Hartridge added 23 but by that stage Windsor were already well behind the run rate and they finished on 137 off 20 overs.
