Kibworth have been crowned Everards Challenge Cup champions.
They powered to a 98-run victory over Lutterworth with an impressive performance in the final at Market Harborough.
Kibworth were put in to bat and raced to 239-4 in their 40 overs.
Josh Cobb, batting at No.3, hit 71 and skipper Andy Smith, who went in at No.4, was unbeaten on 81.
Kibworth's left-arm opening bowler Tom Driver, who has been in good form in recent weeks, caused plenty of problems for the Lutterworth batsman. He took 3-34 and Richard Jackson 2-9.
Although Lutterworth skipper Karl Smith cracked a quickfire 44, his side were all out for 141.
Kibworth are a side who are used to winning trophies.
In the last 10 years, they have landed the national club championship twice, the Everards County League crown four times, the County Cup twice, and this is their third Challenge Cup triumph
It has been something of a transitional season for the Fleckney Road club because they are only seventh in the Everards Premier Division table.
But young players such as Aadil Ali have made a big impression and Driver has been a revelation in recent weeks.
Smith said that it makes a big difference when Leicestershire's Cobb and Greg Smith are available.
He added: "Our batting has let us down a couple of times but the league is so close that, if you win two or three games, you can be right up in the mix again."
