Stevenage's cricketers have a shot at the league title going into the last weekend of the season.

They are 18 points behind Home Counties Premier League Division Two East leaders Radlett but ahead of Welwyn Garden City in second place.

Stevenage host their near neighbours and relegation candidates Knebworth Park this Saturday (11am start) while Welwyn GC entertain Radlett.

With 25 points available for a win, Stevenage, Radlett and Welwyn GC all still have a chance of the title.

A gutsy team effort resulted in an emphatic eight-wicket victory for Stevenage over Potters Bar (see Sport 5).

With victory in the bag with five overs to spare, the Stevenage players assembled in their changing room to wait to hear the results of the Radlett and Welwyn GC games.

Radlett comfortably dealt with Knebworth Park (see Sport 5) but Welwyn GC failed to chase Sawbridgeworth's 75 all out, being dismissed for only 72 themselves.
