New league shapes up

Cricket

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

TEAMS across the county have dis­cov­ered their op­po­nents for next sum­mer’s in­au­gu­ral Kent Re­gional Cricket League.

Scores of teams from the Feeder League East and West have been amal­ga­mated into a new-look struc­ture which of­fers a county-wide Premier Divi­sion from which teams can be pro­moted into Divi­sion 5 of the Kent League as well as more lo­calised re­gional di­vi­sions.

Or­gan­is­ing the di­vi­sions proved chal­leng­ing for new chair­man Keith Hem­stalk.

How­ever, he in­sisted clubs were put at lev­els which were deemed ap­pro­pri­ate based on their past per­for­mance and said any clubs dis­ap­pointed with the level they have been in­cluded would have to prove the league’s new com­mit­tee wrong by winning pro­mo­tion at the first at­tempt.
