Booker hits form and 85

Sunday XI v. Coventry Ramblers

Kenilworth Sunday side entertained Coventry Ramblers on sunny Sunday May 7th.

Kenilworth chose to bat first, after an early loss, Nathan Chant joined Tom Booker, the pair adding a fine partnership of 84 for the second wicket, before Chant fell to an unlucky run out for 27, Booker went on to make a very fine 85 his innings containing ten boundary fours and one maximum. After he was out, Kenilworth lost a flurry of wickets, only other batsmen to make double figures were Jorjeet Singh and Jack Howard with 13 each and number ten Andy Dadswell with 10. Minhas with an amazing 4 for 5 and P.Dinning with 3 for 31 doing the damage, Kenilworth finishing on 187 all out in the 37th over.
 The visitors started their reply in a positive manner, reaching 38 without loss, but the guile of Ali Peebles with 2 for 31 off eight overs, reduced the Ramblers to 43 for 3. As wickets continued to fall, the run rate slowed, the visitors fell short of their target, finishing on 135 for 9. Other wicket takers were Jorjeet Singh with 3 for 4, Geoff Edmunds 1 for 4, Matt Dadswell 1 for 24 off eight tidy overs, Tom Skinner 1 for 27 also off eight overs and Jack Howard 1 for 29. Morgan with 30 and Sharma 20 for the visitors. 
Kenilworth winning by 52 runs.

Danny Boneham strikes his maiden century

Sunday XI v. Marton


Young Danny Boneham hit his maiden century during the match against Marton at our Warwick Road ground on Sunday 30th. April in a 40 overs a side friendly.


Visitors Marton batted first and after the loss of early wickets to the ageless Ali Peebles (3 for 34) off eight overs, they regrouped, Ruban with 63 and Khan with 58 added an aggressive partnership of 104 for the fifth wicket. Several missed opportunities in the field for Kenilworth helped Marton reached 221 for 6 from their forty overs, two smart run outs and a wicket for captain Geoff Edmunds (1 for 9) added to Peebles haul.

 Kenilworth’s young openers Danny Boneham and Dan Horner (18) put on 55 for the first wicket, young Elliot Haynes-Sorrell with 16, then added 71 for with Boneham for the second wicket, but this was to be young Danny Boneham’s day as went on to post his maiden century, his innings of 110 containing 11 sparkling boundaries, it was truly a magnificent innings, one he will always remember.
Unfortunately Boneham’s brilliant effort was to be in vain, Charlie Waters (16) and Alex Cockburn (12) tried hard to get their side home, but the hosts finished on 194 for 6 from their forty overs. Sufi with 2 for 36 and Lawson 1 for 25 the most successful bowlers for the visitors.
Marton the winners by 27 runs, on a day when young Danny Boneham won’t forget.

The 2016 Season ends with Sunday side losing heavily

Sunday XI v. Enville

Kenilworth finished the 2016 season with a  home forty over a side friendly against Enville on Sunday 18th September.
Enville batted first on lovely late summers day, Matthew Dadswell (1 for 44), removed one of the Enville opening bats in the third over, sending knocking his leg stump flying, his new ball partner Sid ‘evergreen’ Peebles bowling his wily seam, bowled a fine spell of 1 for 21 from his eight overs, but after the loss of those early wickets, opening bat Roberts with a fine 82 and Miller with an aggressive 65 eventually started to put their side into a commanding position, Enville finishing on a very decent 216 for 6 from their forty overs, other wickets went to Jono Sparks 1 for 24, skipper Geoff Edmunds 1 for 34, and seamer Sam Leach 1 for 48. There was also a smart run out and fine catch on the boundary by young Sparks, so off the players went for the last cricket tea of the season.
Kenilworth had a terrible start on their pursuit of the runs, somehow managing to fall to 31 for 6, before being dismissed for a paltry 63 all out in only 23 overs, Henry Curran with 23, Danny Boneham with 12 and Jono Sparks with 10 made double figures as Parfitt 4 for 14 from eight overs and Gill 2 for 28 doing the majority of the damage, as Kenilworth ended a decent season on a very low note, losing by a huge 153 runs.
So as we say goodbye to 2016 season, we look forward to a new chapter for 2017.

Ramblers edge it

Sunday XI v. Coventry Ramblers

The Sunday XI hosted Coventry Ramblers in a 40 overs a side friendly and had to settle for second best after being bowled out for 117 despite a super 58 from Pat Howard who hit 11 boundaries, 2 sixes whilst only running a solitary 2 in his knock. Phil Edmonds added 24 but the pair were the only ones to reach double figures as Glendining took 3-13, Poonia 3-22, Sharma 2-15 and Mountfield 2-27 for the Ramblers.

Sharma led the Ramblers to victory with an unbeaten 59 as they reached 118-7, recovering from 14-4 after young seamer Ryan Bull had taken out the top 4 batsmen to end on 4-12 from his 6 overs (and rounding off a fine weekend with wickets both days). Sharma remained steadfast whilst Martin McKenna, Ali Peebles and Liam Cottle took the other wickets to fall.

Seconds remain top

2nd XI v. Stockingford 1st XI

Kenilworth 2nds consolidated their lead of Division 8 East of the Warwickshire Cricket League with a fine 7 wicket win over Stockingford with only 2 matches of their 2016 League campaign remaining.

Stockingford were bowled out for 127 despite Percival at number 3 remaining unbeaten on 43. All Kenilworth bowlers took wickets. Opening pair Freddie Davies took 1-28 and Ryan Bull 1-27. However, it was Jack Howard with a fine 3-33 that did the mid order damage, leaving Geoff Edmunds to claim 1-29 and Max Howard 1-8. Yet, it was old timer Ali Peebles who took 2 wickets from his one maiden over burst that wrapped up the Stockingford innings.

Chasing, Kenilworth reached 131-3 at a canter inside 27 overs as Jack Howard made 55 with 7 x 4 and 2 x 6, James Alty made an unbeaten 22 and Mike Watts 11 not out after Pete Huxford had made 11. Calver took 2-17 and Trapp 1-39 for Stockingford.

The win leaves Kenilworth 41 points ahead of second placed Attleborough but they have a game in hand so next weekend’s fixtures for both sides will be crucial for the destination of the title.
