Dan Coul­son hit 53 and skip­per Dar­ren Pugh 44 as Mer­sham Sports con­tin­ued their win­ning run with a 42-run Cham­pi­onship East vic­tory at Bob­bing Court. Good late hit­ting by Matthew Fagg 30 and an un­beaten stand of 40 be­tween James Fearne (38 not out) and Ge­of­frey Fagg (20 not out) sus­tained the in­nings, as the vis­i­tors closed on 214-8. Bob­bing Court looked com­fort­ably placed at 91-2 but Pugh (3-32) and Ge­of­frey Fagg (4-38) then got to work as wick­ets tum­bled reg­u­larly – the last four fall­ing in the space of 11 runs. Grant Lang­field top scored with 41 for Ken­ning­ton as they went down by six wick­ets at lead­ers Old Wil­liamso­ni­ans. Four Wye bats­men failed to trou­ble the scor­ers as they slipped to 81 all out, los­ing by 89 runs to Sher­woood at Rochester. John Web­ster made 31, one of only three oth­ers who reached dou­ble fig­ures. Cal­lum Stuckey hit 57 off 58 balls but failed to stop Willes­bor­ough’s 39-run de­feat at home to Upchurch. Stuckey walked out with his side 45-5, chas­ing a tar­get of 167 but bat­ted well, hit­ting six fours and a six be­fore the in­nings tailed off quickly at the end.
