2nd XI v. Nuneaton 3rds

On Saturday 4th June, Kenilworth 2nds hosted Nuneaton 3rds in their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Eight East fixture.

Visitors Nuneaton batted first, after the loss of an early wicket, Ison with 70 and number three Hubbard with a fine innings of 105, together they put on 178 for the second wicket, as Kenilworth’s bowlers found life hard, against perhaps the best batting side that they have seen this season. Ian Baker with 2 for 45 continued his excellent season and Jack Howard 1 for 70, along with two run outs, the visitors made a strong 251 for 5 from their 45 overs.

Kenilworth started their reply strongly with openers Jack Howard 29 and all rounder Joe Boyle with 38 putting on 59 for the first wicket before slipping to 64 for 3, which put the side on the back foot as Kenilworth were finding life hard against a good Nuneaton bowling attack.

Mark Stranks with a determined 35 not out saw the side hang on to a losing draw, Kenilworth finishing on 147 for 8 but they move to third spot in the Division as a result. Tedds with 4 for 48 doing the damage. Kenilworth take five points.

Rain spoils the day

2nd XI v. RMCC

Kenilworth’s 2nd XI trip to RMCC in their Warwickshire Cricket League Division 8 East clash was abandoned due to the weather after Kenilworth had posted 155-7 and RMCC were 55-1 in reply.

All Kenilworth batsmen had made starts before they fell – James Adamson 37, Joe Boyle 32, Dan Horner 20, Jack Howard 16 and 10 a piece from Martin McKenna and Mark Stranks. For RMCC, A. Khan was the pick of the bowling attack as he took 5-32 whilst Z. Khan and Hussain took the other wickets to fall.

Joe Boyle took 1-21 for Kenilworth before the match was abandoned due to rain.

Howard leads the side, leads with the bat and the ball too!

2nd XI v. Berkswell 3’s

On Saturday 14th May, Kenilworth’s 2nd XI team hosted Berkswell CC 3rd XI at their Warwick Road ground in their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Eight East match.

Kenilworth were asked to bat first, the loss of an early wicket, opening bat Andy Dadswell 16 and debutant Tom Jenkins 12 steadied the innings, but when they both departed in quick succession, the home side then slipped to 71 for 6 –  that bought captain Jack Howard and along with young Martin McKenna 36. Together they put on a very fine partnership of 93, but captain Howard hit an outstanding 55 (4×4 & 2×6) with Kenilworth finishing on 175 for 9 and considering they were struggling, this was a competitive score. Fernando with 3 for 49 was the pick of the Berkswell bowlers.

The visitors reply got off to flying start, as Fernando who was in a hurry, hit 54 from opening, his side were well placed at 118 for 2, but a fiery second spell from captain Jack Howard soon ripped through the visitors middle order to finish with 5 for 46 to cap a fantastic day for himself along with his 55. Howard’s new ball partner Joe Boyle 2 for 34 and experienced seamer Ali Peebles 1 for 15, aided by two smart run outside, the visitors for all out for 141 in the 34th over, as Kenilworth won by 34 runs, and take a full 24 points for their efforts.

1st XI v. Fillongley

Kenilworth’s Saturday 1st XI team travelled to Fillongley for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division 1 fixture on 30th April in a match that was frustrated by the weather but that saw the eagerly awaited debut of seamer, Matt Dargan, who put in an encouraging performance with the ball and who was rewarded with 1-18 off 11 sharp overs that included 4 maidens.

Fillongley batted first and after a steady start the home side slipped to 52 for 2 then 65 for 3 with Sayed top scoring for the hosts with 35. Two further wickets fell on 110 but then rain intervened and the game was stopped.  Further rain meant the match was eventually abandoned with Fillongley  on 133 for 5 off 34 overs.

A good fielding and bowling performance by the Kenilworth side saw the wickets shared around, as Phil Edmonds took 2 for 36, Matt Dargan 1 for 18, Neil Goodman 1 for 7 and Joe Boyle with 1 for 41.

Kenilworth take 6 pts from the abandoned game on a day that  the weather had the final say.
