WITH the Lords East Kent Cricket League sea­son done and dusted de­spite the sum­mer pat­tern of wet and dull weather, there was keen and com­pet­i­tive cricket played.

Whit­stable were crowned cham­pi­ons with Can­ter­bury two points be­hind. Ash­ford Town though fin­ished a cred­itable third af­ter lead­ing for a long pe­riod and only fall­ing away in the lat­ter stages.

Over­seas player, Caiden Lang (Can­ter­bury) led the bat­ting charts with 697 runs at an av­er­age of 99.57. The per­for­mance was a great ef­fort with 10 in­nings con­sist­ing of eight half cen­turies and one short of a cen­tury (99 runs) when victory was gained against Ash­ford Town.

Other bats­men top­ping the 500 run mark in­cluded home tal­ent Liam Tegg (Ash­ford Town); West In­dian Leon John­son (Sand­wich) and Aus­tralian Kyle McAlis­ter (Mer­sham Sports).

McAlis­ter also scored 155 runs in one in­nings but was sur­passed by Ciaran Mor­gan (St Lawrence and High­land Court), strik­ing 162 ver­sus Rain­ham.

Josh Gould of Whit­stable recorded the best bowl­ing anal­y­sis with six for 29 against Deal Vic­to­ria and Barns Close and for the sea­son took 20 scalps.

Close be­hind on 19 came Leon John­son (Sand­wich); James Rand 16 (Ash­ford Town); Scott McNa­mara (Deal Vic­to­ria and Barns Close) and Ben Dwyer (Hythe) were next in line with 15 wick­ets apiece.

There were also eight in­di­vid­u­als tak­ing five wicket hauls. Lead­ing the way was Rand (Ash­ford Town) achiev­ing five for five against Broad­stairs and spinner Vishaul Singh (Sand­wich) five

for seven ver­sus Non­ing­ton.
