Kenilworth’s first team travelled to divisional champions Water Orton for their final Warwickshire Cricket League Division One fixture of the season on the 10th of September.

After persistent rain, the two sides were eventually able to start a twenty overs a side match at 3.45 p.m. Home side Water Orton batted first and were soon in trouble at 3 for 2, but Lloyd with 56 and Bennett with 40 put on 83 for the fourth wicket, Water Orton made a decent total of 152 for 8 from their 20 overs as Kenilworth didn’t help themselves by dropping six catches. Kenilworth wickets  went to the consistent Steve Rhodes with 2 for 15, Ed Ruswa 2 for 25, Joe Boyle 1 for 23 and a wicket for  Dave Edmunds 1 for 22 whilst there were also two smart run outs.

Kenilworth started their reply in a positive manner, Joe Boyle with 19, skipper Chris Prophet 22 and Dave Edmunds 37 were all able partners for opening bat Tom Booker who played a classy innings of 68 not out, his innings including 4 x 4 and 4 x 6, putting on 56 with Dave Edmunds for the second wicket and another 56 with Chris Prophet for the third wicket, as Kenilworth finished on 156 for 3, to win by seven wickets with three balls to spare.

1st XI v. Water Orton

Kenilworth’s first team hosted Water Orton in Warwickshire Cricket League Division One fixture.

Water Orton batted and made a solid start, Freeman with 36 as the visitors were 44 for no wicket then 69 for 1, but subsided to 119 for 6, with seamer Joe Boyle ripping through the visitors middle order, taking a fine 4 for 24. There were wickets too for Charlie Stranks 2 for 25, Steve Rhodes 2 for 49, Chris Prophet 1 for 17 and Aussie Matt Dargan 1 for 28. Dawes added 26, but the visitors were all out for 153 in only 41 overs, an impressive wicket keeping performance by Michael Watts, taking four smart catches behind and a stumping.

Kenilworth straight away lost a wicket, slipping to 1 for 1 but in form Guy Pearson with 57 including (8 x 4 and 2 x 6) and Matt Dargan with a fine maiden half century for the Club with 54 including five boundary fours took the home side to what seemed to be a victory at 111 for 2, but like the week before, Kenilworth’s middle and lower order again collapsed, as the home side crashed to 129 for 8. The ninth wicket pair putting on 20, but fell one run short on 152 all out in only 31 overs, as once again suicidal batting costing Kenilworth a victory. Davinda with 4 for 49 doing the damage, Water Orton some how winning by one run.

Booker secures win after great team bowling display

1st. XI v. Weoley Hill

Kenilworth 1st XI hosted Weoley Hill, looking for their third win in a row in the Warwickshire Cricket League Division One.

Weoley Hill chose to bat first on a cloudy but dry summer’s day and after a steady start where they reached 45 for 1, they subsided to 67 for 6, as seamers Steve Rhodes 2 for 34 and Joe Boyle 4 for 22 , took the wickets after both bowling outstanding spells. However, it was the returning of Ed Ruswa with a dazzling spell of spin bowling that saw the visitors all out for just 110 in 43 overs, finishing with figures of 4 for 20 with Steve Rhodes holding onto two sharp catches at slip that summed a really superb overall effort in the field.

Kenilworth’s reply was soon in trouble, as they were reduced to 35 for 5, as opening bowler Chadwick took 3 for 32 to blow the home side’s top order away. Kenilworth were indebted to wicket keeper batsman Tom Booker who came to rescue the side with a gritty and composed 58 not out including eleven boundary fours and who went on to win the game for his side. Lohar with 3 for 50 bowled well for the visitors, but it was Booker who got his side over the line with Kenilworth ending on 111 for 6 to win by four wickets in only 21 overs to take 24 points for their third win in a row that sees them move up to fourth in the Division.
