The 1st XI scored a record 347 against Faversham 1st XI to win their local derby by 217 runs.

A superb 113 from captain Ricky Dale building on a fine opening partnership from Adam Larking (40) and Tom Carey (57). Lee Taylor (36) and Callum Leary (33) continued to pile on the runs as the team reached a Saturday team record of 347 for 6 off their 50 overs.

Only one Faversham player put up any resistance as they were all out for 130 in the 34th over.  Pick of the bowling was openers Harry Mantle (3 for 16) and Owen Harrison (3 for 20) with good support from Tyler Wassell (2 for 55) and Matt Lewis (2 for 18)


The 2nd XI entertained Hartley and batting first saw captain Nick Page (86) put on another not out score ably supported by James Weller (57) and with a quick cameo from Linc Bryden (17) at the end saw the team reach 232 for 6 in their 46 overs

Solid bowling from Lee Cogger (2 for 38)  and Adam Rayner (1 for 35) set the platform up for the spinners as Luke Whitehouse (4 for 34) and Glenn Kennett (3 for 23) removed the remaining batsman as Hartley were bowled out for 139 in 34 overs


The 3rd XI were at home to Minster who elected to bat.   Michael Neame (5 for 14) picked up the clubs first 5 wicket haul of the season and supported by Tony Hadfield (3 for 7 off 2) meant the visitors were all out for 117 in the 32nd over

A jug avoidance innings from Nathan Glazier (49) and another not out innings from Chris Hogg (29) saw the team reach the target with 5 wickets and 4.4 overs to spare.


The Sunday XI travelled to Selsted and elected to field – Selsted unfortunately only had 9 players and found themselves bowled out for 96 in 35.4 overs. Pick of the bowlers J. Mitchell (3 for 15), James Weller (2 for 26) and Anthony Burbury (2 for 6)

The runs were knocked off in 18.5 overs with 5 wickets to spare.  Captain James Sutton 32 no being the top score.
