Tegg is look­ing for a re­turn to form at home to neigh­bours Hythe on Satur­day. “They are strug­gling as well, so it is a pretty big game for both sides,” he said.

Dar­ren Cooper took 5-42 as Ash­ford 2nds’ Di­vi­sion 5 game at Bapchild ended in a tie, both sides all out for 111. James Rod­way, with fig­ures of 3-29, did the early dam­age, be­fore the home side’s Steve Pumphrett held them up, mak­ing 62. Cooper ran through the tail, be­fore last man Owen Har­ri­son was run out go­ing for the win­ning run.
