This meet was cancelled because of the weather.
Jack Gallagher (Kent) scored 96 not out versus King's School Canterbury to lead his side to a massive 168, which was twenty too much for a fine reply by our worthy opponents who scored a creditable 148. This has put our U15s into the final of the Kent Miskin Plate final to be played at Tenterden Tuesday July 4th (11.00am).
Fine catches by William Ralph, Ben Gibson and Louis Stone were important. Liam McGoarty (Kent U13) bowled a magnificent over in response to a difficult over which showed great spirit and confidence - well played Liam.
Louis Gillespie was reliable behind the stumps and George Shaw and Cameron Stewart impressed with their energy and committment in the field. Well played one and all - let's see if we can follow this winning formula in the final.

Final: Hawks v Kestrels
TWGSB won by 12 runs. We scored 87 for 7 and the opposition were 76 all out. The final next week will be against Skinners or Simon Langton.
Great character was shown by our Year 7 team to win an exciting match by 7 runs. Batting first, Jacob Webb got a good ball and 17 for 1 quickly became a mini collapse (17 for 3). However, Sam Gale led the recovery with sound buffs to the boundary ably supported by Joe Thackeray. Together they put on 49. Next in, Ben Metcalf put a lovely ball through the covers for four and was the beneficiary of poor bowling and cover behind the square. He was eventually run out for a more than handy 22.
Our reply did exactly what I asked for - to keep it tight at both ends. Two maiden overs (Metcalf and Thackeray) meant Ashford now had to get 115 in eighteen overs instead of twenty. Thackeray removed their opener taking out off stump 13 for 1 off five overs. Two quality batsman saw them to 55 for 1 off 11. The drinks break did the trick and Bradley bowled a rank long hop that Thackeray caught well at mid-off. The skipper had seen enough and brought himself on. Metcalf's second spell finished well with three off the last over. Their left hander was useful but a great save by Bradley's boot stopped a certain four and as they fell behind the rate he came back for a second and Gale's sensible throw to Bradley - now turned wicket-keeper - saw the tide turn our way. Thackeray and Webb finished with three apiece as we stuck everyone on the boundary. A good win and with more practice and Zac Austin back in the side we stand a good chance in the semi-final.
Jack Gallagher was 106 not out.
Falcons - Ospreys
Jacob Webb carried his bat for a fine sixty runs and Joe Bradley (20) supported him well. Their opening bowler was fast and accurate and we were 3 standing at 1 run for 2 wickets down when a partnership of seventy runs developed between Bradley and Webb. Posting a score of 116 was a fine effort. Thackeray opened up with two wickets in his first over and bowled through with figures of 2 for 11 off four overs. Ben Rayner bowled promisingly and should have had their nest batsman caught at extra-cover. Jack Sanders took a wicket with his first delivery. A fine over from Dylan Bran saw him clean bowl two tail-enders in the final over. Sam Gale showed promise behind the stumps.
