Town denied chance to make up ground
Liam Tegg and Craig Buckham claimed two wickets each for Ashford Town as Division 3 leaders Harvel reached 134-5 before the rain arrived at Stacians Park on Saturday. Both teams took eight points.
Town are third, 10 points behind the Gravesend villagers and five adrift of second-placed Catford & Cyphers who visit on Saturday.
In the corresponding 2nd XI fixture, at the Desmond Wood Ground, the match made further progress but again the rain intervened before a result was possible.

In reply, Ashford 2nds were struggling on 30-4 when rain stopped play.
