Ash­ford Town

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Cricket -

A late col­lapse cost Ash­ford Town the chance of vic­tory as their Di­vi­sion 1 home game against St Lawrence & High­land Court ended in a tie. Town looked on course to get home com­fort­ably when they were 181-2 but a flurry of wick­ets left them forced to chase the game, with Tim Ham­bridge run out off the last ball. Ham­bridge (70) and skip­per Liam Tegg added 74 for the sec­ond wicket be­fore the lat­ter went for 64 but it was Si­mon Tay­lor’s dis­missal (also run out for 25) that changed the game. Jack Richard­son, Sam Ken­nett and Peter Shields were then dis­missed, the lat­ter two at the same score, be­fore Ham­bridge per­ished, leav­ing them 200-7. Ear­lier, Tegg won the toss and put the Can­ter­bury side in, Ken­nett claim­ing an early scalp. Wick­ets fell reg­u­larly be­fore Ruar­idh Macleod hit 32 at the end to help Saints reach 200-8. The 2nds (164-9) went down by eight wick­ets at Chisle­hurst & West Kent (165-2) in Di­vi­sion 5.
