Shingler’s efforts in vain

All 3 League sides lose


Saturday 6th. August


Another disappointing day for the three Kenilworth Saturday League sides as they all lost in their win/lose format of matches.


1st XI


Kenilworth v. Leamington 2’s

WCCL Division 1  – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format


Leamington 255-9 (50 overs) (20 points) beat Kenilworth 178-7 (50 overs) (6 points) by 77 runs.


Connor Shingler’s fine efforts of 3-52 with the ball and 82 runs with the bat were in vain as Kenilworth chasing Leamington’s 255-9 lost out by 77 runs as the win/lose format of League cricket matches returned.  Darren Williams top scored for the Spa side with 58, whilst J. Hawkins and W. Hawkins both made 37 as the side posted a stiff score.  Stuart Cope took 2-35, Joe Atkinson 2-61 and Olly Berry 1-59 for the Town. Kenilworth found runs hard to come by despite Atkinson hitting a quickfire 25 at the start of the side’s reply and they soon found themselves behind the required run rate despite Shingler’s solid knock in which he hit 7 boundaries and a six. Adey Sellar chipped in with an all run 32 but the trio were the only ones to reach double figures in the Town’s total of 178-7 as wickets were shared by the Spa bowlers though 2 run outs did not aid Kenilworth’s cause.



2nd. XI


Kenilworth v. Attleborough

WCCL Division 7 East – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format


Kenilworth 218-10 (46.5 overs) (3 points) lost to Attleborough 219-1 (38.1 overs) (20 points).


No report is currently available as the scorebook was left behind at Attleborough, in error.



3rd. XI


Kenilworth v. Warwick

CHL Division 4 North – 40 overs a side – Win/Lose format


Warwick 234-9 (40 overs) (22 points) beat Kenilworth 122-10 (28.4 overs) (5 points) by 112 runs.


Warwick proved far too strong for the Town 3’s as they posted 234-9 with  opener White hitting 66 and number 3, O’Connell, 55 as Rana took 2-25, Dhruv Vyas 2-40, Gareth Knights 2-42 and 1-19 from Dave Hone for Kenilworth. The side could only make 122 in reply with Andy Dadswell and Vik Joshi top scorers making 17 each as wickets tumbled and side could only post 122 in reply. Pantling took 3-10 from 6 overs  and Panja 2-9 as Warwick ran out easy winners.





Tate continues his good form in side’s win

Sunday success


Sunday 17th. July


Sunday XI v. Coftonians

40 overs a side Friendly


Kenilworth 256-5 (40 overs) beat Coftonians 196-10 (34.3 overs) by 60 runs.


The Sunday XI posted 256-5 in their 40 overs and then were in danger of losing the match as Coftonians’ openers put on 154 inside 20 overs for their first wicket but the visitors then lost 5 wickets for 9 runs which changed the direction of the match. Dan Horner and teenager Joe Tate had opened for the Town putting on 89 runs together for the first wicket with Horner making 50 (6 x 4). Tate then teamed up with Dhruv Vyas and the pair out on a further 95 runs together. Tate went onto make a fine 70 (6 x 4) continuing his solid season and Vyas 53 (6 x 4, 1 x 6). Shyaan Imam chipped in with 29 not out and Sam Leach made an unbeaten 20 in the Town’s total with Hussain taking 3-36 for Coftonians. In reply, Patel and Yash made light work of the bowling until Patel who made 71 was caught by Vyas off Imam’s bowling. Yash then quickly fell hitting 65 after Leach struck – one of his 4 wickets (4-32) and that changed the course of the game, as no one else reached double figures with the Town bowlers firmly on top and the side were soon bowled out for 196 inside 35 overs to give the Town victory by 60 runs. A. Joshi took 2-14 with a wicket a piece for Imam and Matt Dadswell, in addition to Leach’s earlier haul. Ollie Berry took two outfield catches, as did Vyas, in a good all round performance by the Town side.


2’s frustrate Coleshill whilst the others lose

A tough Saturday for all 3 sides


Saturday 23rd. July

In reply. K & D’s Jake Simmons opening hit 51 and Isaac Maddy 39. The side wobbled at 138-6 until a 71 run unbeaten partnership between James Hughes 49 not out (8 x 4, 1x 6) and 25 not out (5 x 4) from Vidan Iyer saw them to 209-6 with relative ease, after Town’s Joe Atkinson had earlier taken 4-26 with a wicket apiece from Rhodes and Tom Skinner.
