For the Town side, openers Joe Atkinson took 2-58 and Jono Sparks 2-57 whilst spinners Tom Skinner and Connor Shingler picked up a wicket a piece.
In reply, Kenilworth stuttered to 27-3 and then 69-5 before being bowled out for 179 in the 40th. over despite the best efforts of Adam Huxford who tried in vain to hold the innings together, making a fine unbeaten 83, hitting 12 boundaries in his knock. Atkinson added 15, Shingler 12 and Adie Sellar 11 but they were the only other players to reach double figures as the run chase proved too difficult to keep up with as they side lost wickets all too regularly. For the Wardens, Morgan-Jones took 2-31, 4 other bowlers a wicket each whilst there were two run outs on a day that belonged to Hussain for his century.
