Leicestershire claimed an 11-run win over Somerset in the final of the Second XI Twenty20 competition at Arundel.
James Pearson was the star as he claimed 4-17 as the Foxes successfully defended 159 for seven.
Tom Wells’ 50 from 37 balls had enabled Leicestershire to set a testing target, although Somerset appeared well on target when they were 101 for three in the 14th over.
The west country outfit began to lose their way, however, when James Burke, who had steadied the chase with 39 from 41 balls, was caught by Michael Thornley off leg-spinner Usman Tariq.
When Thornley then bowled top-scorer James Regan, after he plundered 44 from 28 balls, Pearson helped mop up the tail to bowl Somerset out for 148 in 19.1 overs.
Leicester had booked their place in the final earlier in the day when they beat Lancashire by 29 runs in former England captain Andrew Flintoff’s comeback match in Red Rose colours.
Somerset overcame Hampshire by eight wickets to seal their place in the decider.
