Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Cricket -

Two cen­turies saw Mer­sham Sports ease to a 233run vic­tory over Blue House in Di­vi­sion 4. Abhi Panda and Dar­ren Pugh both scored 108 to take Mer­sham’s to­tal to 297-5. Panda hit 10 fours, while Pugh smashed 16 fours and four sixes. Alan Smith (4-37) and cap­tain Josh Wise (3-14) then skit­tled Blue House for 64 to main­tain pressure on top-of-the-ta­ble Char­ing. The league lead­ers beat Nor­ton at home by 10 wick­ets when open­ers Tom Lee (70) and Les Mil­ton (78) sur­passed their to­tal of 160-8. Wye recorded a fourth straight win in Di­vi­sion 2 with a 136-run suc­cess over Lin­ton Park. The Ash­ford vil­lagers made 246-4 in their 40 overs, with Max Camp­bell (82) and Neil Wil­liams (76 not out) mak­ing the stand-out con­tri­bu­tions. The hosts then took con­trol with the ball, Ian Lewis (444) claim­ing both open­ers in his first two overs. Fel­low opener Matt Barnes then ripped through the top or­der to leave Lin­ton Park 66-7. They were dis­missed for 110. Eger­ton lost by nine wick­ets against El­ham Val­ley which leaves them just above the rel­e­ga­tion places in Di­vi­sion 1. Only open­ers Steve Wel­lard (25) and Ben Dak­ing (12) were able to make it into dou­ble fig­ures as the hosts bowled them out for 74. Great Chart could not leapfrog Eger­ton and move out of the rel­e­ga­tion places as they lost to sec­ond­placed Ash by 136 runs. Har­ri­son Straw and Dun­can Gar­rett took three wick­ets apiece but Great Chart strug­gled to con­tain the vis­i­tors who reached 259 all out. The hosts could only muster 123 all out in re­ply with cap­tain Gavin Hope lead­ing by ex­am­ple with a top-score of 42. Else­where, Rol­ven­den skit­tled Har­ble­down 2nds for 70 in Di­vi­sion 5. Af­ter set­ting a tar­get of 134-5 the vis­i­tors bowled Har­ble­down out with Gary Wil­lis tak­ing 4-13. Lit­tle Chart (111) were not able to catch Lit­tle­bourne 2nds (235-6) and are still look­ing for their first point of the sea­son.
