The Steelbacks showed off their T20 Blast trophy to delighted fans in Northampton this afternoon.

After a slightly soggy open-top bus journey, the team were driven through the town centre and were met by a crowd and dignitaries outside the Guildhall.

And Wakeley showed his class by personally carrying the trophy round to adoring members of the public and handing it out for photos.

Later, the team attended a reception inside the Guildhall.
