Dan Wheeldon produced a captain’s innings to lead Sandiacre Town to the Royal London Club Championship National title in a thrilling final at Bristol. The all-rounder hit a boundary with just three balls remaining to finally see off the challenge of Surrey Championship side Sunbury by two wickets and clinch Town’s first national crown since their 2003 success over Bath. Wheeldon’s 25 not out, batting at number seven, spanned more than an hour as wickets fell around him but, combined with man of the match John Jordison’s 25 from 20 balls, he completed a dream weekend for the Derbyshire Premier League side.
