Skip­per Stu­art Wise hit 19 fours and a six in his 132 as Wye made an im­pres­sive 309-3 to beat bot­tom side Lordswood 3rds by 197 runs on Satur­day. The win leaves them third – 17 points be­hind joint 1A Cen­tral lead­ers Hol­combe & Blue Bell Hill – with three games left. Joe El­gar (50) sup­ported fel­low opener Wise well in a big first-wicket stand, as they plun­dered the vis­it­ing at­tack with five bowlers con­ced­ing 180 runs off 22 overs. El­gar (3-24) and two wick­ets each for Ian Lewis and Phil Wise helped dis­miss the Med­way club for only 112 in just 28.1 overs. Ken­ning­ton fielded only 10 men as they slumped to a 14-run de­feat at Rams­gate Corinthi­ans in Di­vi­sion 1A East. Joe Jol­ley, Ian Hughes and Jamie Car­roll all took three wick­ets as the Thanet side to­talled 149. Be­ing one man short proved costly as the Ash­ford side dipped from a match-win­ning po­si­tion at 124-5 to lose five wick­ets for nine runs on their way to 135 all out. Willes­bor­ough claimed the points af­ter 1B East op­po­nents Sturry con­ceded.
