Tom Tons up and Jacob get maiden half century


Tom Carey hit his third century of the season scoring a fine 119 in the Club’s Kent Village League game against Worth at the weekend

Captain Tom Carey lead from the front when he chose to bat on arriving at Worth on Sunday.   Supported well by James Weller (45) in a opening 91 run partnership and he then carried on with a 130 run second wicket partnership with Jacob Carter who scored his maiden half century at senior level with a fine 61 as Tom reached his third century of the season before being bowled for 119.  Glenn Kennett was on 13 not out at the close as the team reached 252 for 3 off their allotted overs.   Ethan Collier returning from University for his first game of the season picked up 3 for 47 and the club had the opposition on 73 for 3.    Unfortunately a 120 run partnership from the opener and Worth’s wicket keeper did the damage and although Ben Wiebe-Williams (1 for 54) managed to break the partnership Worth reached the target in just 28 overs and six wickets to spare.


The 1st XI travelled to  Old Colfeians and put the home team into bat and looked to be the right decision as Old Colfeians found themselves 80 for 5 with wickets coming from Ben Wiebe-Williams (3 for 27), Tyler Wassell (3 for 37) and Ricky Dale (3 for 31) but their middle order fought back and they managed to reach 211 before being bowled out at the end of 49th over.

Unfortunately only Tom Carey (38) and Tyler Wassell (22) made double figures in Bapchild’s reply as the team found themselves all out for 103 in the 29th over.


The 2nd XI entertained Cobham who were put into the field by captain James Sutton on a very hot day.   Three early wickets put the club under pressure but James (28) and Alan Hampton (25) put on a 61 run partnership but as both fell with the score on 100 Cobham took advantage bowling the team out for 142 in the 43rd over.

Bapchild fought hard picking up 5 wickets but a 95 not out from their opener lead the opposition across the line in the 35th over


Egerton concede against the 3rd XI
