Young guns have fun in the sun…….and so close Henry!

Sunday XI v. Fladbury

On Sunday 9th July, Kenilworth’s young side played host to Fladbury in a forty overs a side friendly.

Asked to bat first, visitors Fladbury made a steady start to their innings, Darius Potten-Ravenshad took the first wicket, clean bowling Clayton for 21 with the score on 47. Batting at three for the visitors was Edwards and he was to go on to make a solid 53 for his side, but it was the Fladbury number six Dixon who really got his side’s innings going, his aggressive 69 not out contained 8 fours and 2 sixes, as the home bowlers toiled in the summer heat. Fladbury posting a decent 228 for 6 from their forty overs. Wicket takers for Kenilworth were Darius Potten-Ravenshad with 2 for 54 from eight overs, Matt Casey 1 for 37 off eight overs and a wicket for Max Howard, 1 for 28 off six overs, added to a smart run out each to Henry Curran and Max Howard.

The Kenilworth reply got off to superb start as opening bats Dan Horner and Henry Curran soon had the scoreboard moving, the pair putting the bowling to the boundary on a regular basis, along with all run fours, the pair were having fun in the sun. They put putting on a hundred partnership in only 18 overs. As Curran was in sight of a well deserved century, he managed to chip the ball to mid wicket and was out agonisingly one short, out for 99, his innings containing 17 fours and 3 sixes, his partnership with captain Horner worth 167 in just 26 overs and his weekend run tally (and average) amounting to 169. Well done, young man!

Max Howard came out at three to join captain Horner, he too soon had the scoreboard moving, the pair adding 53 before Horner was bowled for a superb 79, his innings containing 6 fours and 1 six. With nine runs needed, it was left to Ben Whidborne (4 not out) and young Howard to win the game for Kenilworth, Max Howard ending on 39 not out to hit the winning runs with four overs left.

Kenilworth finishing on 231 for 2, to win by eight wickets.
