Tom Carey marked his returned from a five week break in Africa by scoring a century on Sunday while Izzy Julier became the second female to play senior cricket for the club.

The Sunday XI travelled to Mersham-Le-Hatch where they played against our former overseas player and 1st team captain Ben Fulton.  Electing to bat first the home team scored slowly until Ben Fulton entered the fray scoring 141 of the 253 (for 3) off their allotted 40 overs.  Pick of the bowling Joe Mills (2 for 49) and Owen Harrison (1 for 33).

Tom opened the batting scoring a superb and well deserved 124.  With excellent support from Rob Kennett (64) and Nick Page (42) the team reached the target with 6 wickets and 4 balls to spare


The 1st XI travelled to Dartfordians who elected to bat first.  Owen Harrison (1 for 18) and Harry Mantle (1 for 33) got the team of to a good start but it was Luke Whitehouse (4 for 15) and Matt Lewis (3 for 34) who really got in amongst the batting order as the home team was bowled out for 119 in the 33rd over

It took just 27 overs to knock off the runs with Matt Lewis (57 no), Lee Taylor (33) and Adam Larking (21) all scoring as the team won by 8 wickets.


The 2nd XI entertained top of the league Ashford and decided to bat first.  Mike Willis (69) and John Heatley (39) put on a good second wicket partnership and James Weller  (22) and Lincoln Bryden (46) both chipped in setting a target of 226 (for 8) in their allotted 46 overs

After tea the team picked up two early wickets but a third wicket partnership brought the visitors back into the game.  Ethan Collier (2 for 54), Adam Rayner (2 for 26) and William Cosstick (2 for 40) all picked up a brace but unfortunately Ashford crossed the line with just 1 ball and 3 wickets to spare.

The 3rd XI were at home to Faversham who elected to bat first.  Dan Gunner (1 for 25) and Ella Hadler (2 for 29) both opened the bowling with Ella picking up early wickets.   Fellow colt Oscar Hird carried on the good work taking 3 wickets for just 10 runs in his 4 over spell with Izzy Julier who was making her debut at senior level also picking up a top order batsman.   Guy Wakefield (2 for 9) finished off the tip with Dan Gunner as the home team found themselves all out for 116 in the 29th over.
