KLINGER’S T20 commandos have done it.

Gloucestershire have qualified for the knockout stages of the competition and play Worcestershire on Saturday.

It will be a rousing local Derby that hopefully goes the way of Richard Dawson's side.

Powerful teams such as Yorkshire and Surrey did not make the cut this year, so congratulations to our players for getting us there.

This a real achievement and the players deserve credit for delivering .

Our championship form is less good, however, with the recent display again being abject.

Only four T20 players were in the championship side which shows clearly where the clubs’ priorities lie.

The supporters who went to Edgbaston must feel let down.

u THERE will be another rousing Derby at the New Lawn that same day when Forest Green play Swindon Town.

This a game many of my generation never thought would happen, and we've already seen Rovers come out on top in this fixture in August's Carabao Cup clash.

Back in the day, we would catch the train at Stroud or Kemble and head for a glimpse of league or FA Cup football.

I remember red and white scarves hanging out the train window.

Plenty of praise is due to the Rovers players for their start to the season. How different an outfit they are to the previous campaign.

After three games, Mark Cooper's men are seventh in League Two with five points, having beaten Grimbsy Town 4-1 while drawing 1-1 with Oldham Athletic and Bury.

If they continue in such good form then an exciting season is in prospect.

u IT CERTAINLY seems that at Cirencester Town .They are my team of the week after their stirring performance at Bristol Manor Farm.

Look at the Cirencester squad and you will see many former Forest Green names.

Looking to next Saturday, I have two unanswered questions: Which match shall I attend? Is it too much to hope for two victories?
