Staffordshire County Cricket Club's Matt Morris.

Staffordshire have named a 12-man squad for this weekend’s NCCA Twenty20 Cup finals day.

Defending champions Staffs face Berkshire in the second semi-final at Chester Boughton Hall (1pm), while Cumbria meet Oxfordshire in the first match at 10am.

The final is scheduled to start at 4.30pm.

Staffs have made one change to the squad which beat Hertfordshire and Norfolk at Norwich’s Manor Park in the Super 12s stage last weekend.

Spinner Tom Brett is unavailable due to personal reasons. He has been replaced by Reeve Evitts.

All-rounder Evitts made his Staffordshire debut in the double headers against Northumberland earlier in the T20 campaign.

‘It’s a day which has the capability to shape our season’

He has since been sidelined by injury, but is now fit to return to head coach Andy Carr’s squad.

Tickets for finals day are now on sale and can be booked by clicking here.

Tickets are priced at £10 if booked in advance, with admission rising to £12.50 on the day.
