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.
Kenilworth v. Leamington 2’s
WCCL Division 1 – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 77 RUNS
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.
Kenilworth v. Attleborough
WCCL Division 7 East – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 9 WICKETS
Kenilworth 218-10 (46.5 overs) (3 points) lost to Attleborough 219-1 (38.1 overs) (20 points).

Kenilworth v. Warwick
CHL Division 4 North – 40 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 112 RUNS
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.
