3rd XI lose out

Lapworth too strong

The Thirds failed to overcome  Lapworth and fell short by 44 runs as they were bowled out for 182. Lapworth had posted 226-9 after Akram made 54, Faber 49 and Evans 29 despite Indy Matharu taking a fine 4-50 and youngster Jonno Sparks 2-34 for Kenilworth whilst Sam Leach, Freddie Davies and Chris Beach chipped with a wicket each. In reply, the side started well with Geoff Hay making 43, Leach 29 and Ed Smith 28 but the side then slumped to 135-9. However, Matharu  10* and Sparks teamed up with the bat to put on 47 for the last wicket. Number 11 Sparks was impressive as he hit  five boundaries in his knock of 30 before he fell.
