Hello everyone,

It was good to play all of the senior games over the weekend again although the results unfortunately didn't go the way we would have wanted.

The Saturday side restricted Rolvenden to a fair score but were then bowled out for about 80.

The Sunday first XI came up against what several players described as one of the best batting sides they had seen for a long time and the comment was made several times that it seemed every bad ball and even some good balls were being punished. This just goes to show the high standard of the Kent Village League. In batting first Leeds & Broomfield put on over 300; in reply we got just over 220 with 50s from both Neil and Duncan. In most games a score of over 200 would be enough. Although quite clearly it is disappointing to score that many and lose the fact that well over 500 runs were scored in 80 overs at our ground and on a wicket which we have to remember was relayed about 18 months ago and is still bedding in is something that all those involved in preparing the wickets should be very proud of.

The Sunday second XI were also on the wrong end of their result against Hunton Wanderers. Despite a few good knocks, Paul's view was we didn't get quite enough runs which then put us under pressure when we bowled. Unfortunately we were missing some regular bowlers, including Mitchell who had been taken ill (we hope you are better soon) and were not able to either take enough wickets or restrict the runs.

Let's hope that the weather is equally good for this weekend and the results go our way.

Let's also hope that the boot fair is a great success and that we have an enjoyable quiz evening next Friday.

At the Management Committee meeting this week we discussed a number of things that we need to progress as a club including acquiring another mower for the square, repairs to the drainage system, repairs to the artificial wicket, a new mat for the fixed net and works on the veranda, the latter we discussed at the AGM. All of these projects involve significant expenditure for the club and it is therefore vital that our fundraising is a success.

Kind regards,

Nigel
