Shan­non Fat­tore (2-5 in one over) and Ben Eal­ham (2-6 in two) did most of the dam­age, and Eal­ham’s ef­fort com­pleted a good day for him af­ter he had made 25 com­ing in last for Ash­ford. Char­lie Thomp­son (3-29) and Ge­orge Wall (2-16) did best with the ball for Brook.

James Rand (32) and Dan Chad­wick (22) led the Boughton re­cov­ery while Richard Wil­liams claimed 2-30 for Bethers­den. The day’s sole Divi­sion 3 match saw Elv­ing­ton over­come Head­corn by 15 runs, helped by 26 wides.
