Mer­sham Sports rounded off a suc­cess­ful sum­mer by win­ning the Dyno Plumb­ing Kent T20 ti­tle at The Spit­fire Ground, St Lawrence on Satur­day.

The Ash­ford vil­lagers, who clinched the Kent Re­gional League Cham­pi­onship East ti­tle ear­lier this month, beat de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Frinds­bury by 59 runs in the fi­nal.

Skip­per Dar­ren Pugh said: “It was a great way to end the sea­son and a great day for ev­ery­one – the play­ers and sup­port­ers.

“Ev­ery­one con­trib­uted to our league suc­cess and it was the same story on Satur­day, not just down to one in­di­vid­ual.”

Pugh re­ceived the tro­phy from Kent head coach Jimmy Adams and the spon­sors’ Kent di­rec­tor Richard Read.
