The 1’s recorded a comfortable win against Barrow Town on Saturday which clawed back most of Loughborough’s lead at the top of the Everards Premier.
Batting first Barrow limped to 173/9 from their 50 overs with 2 wickets a piece for Amir, Daz and Aadil.
In response the KCC batters made light work of things with the total being overhauled in just 37 overs.
Sunny continued his strong form with 54 in a strong century opening partnership with Burleighs Man of the Match Matt Craven who weighed in with 81….in other news Daz was not out 17
On Sunday in the County Cup an afternoon that fittingly ended with a heavy downpour saw the KCC side outplayed in all departements.
Lutterworth batted first and an excellent second wicket partnership between Lewis Hill and Matt Pickering helped the home side post 229 off their 40 overs. Chris Hill was the most economical of the KCC bowlers with his 5 overs going for just 20 including 8 off one ball – a no ball + free hit doing the damage. In reply the KCC top order all got a start but Nathan Welhams 8 0vers for 11 runs put the squeeze on and a couple of run outs did not help our cause. In the end we were 50 runs short and will have to regroup in time for next weekends league and league cup games
Luke’s 2’s took a hammering in the field as Newtown Linford ran up a mammoth 364/3 declared from just 41 overs.
The boys showed good character to bat out for a draw as they recorded 241/8 in response with Dave Whitmore scoring 47 and Harrison Norton an unbeaten 25.
The 3’s, under the stewardship of new kipper Jay Boucher travelled to play Old’s and returned with a fantastic win that helps their cause at the wrong end of Northants Division 3.
Batting first, a great bowling performance from a mainly young attack restricted the hosts to 165/9.
Callum Wordsworth was miserly in conceding just 23 runs from his 15 overs….Steve Matthew (not a mis print i am assured) took 2/37 and youngsters Ed Wall (3/27) and Mahang Patel (3/41) played a full part.
In response, things looked bleak in spite of a fine 67 from Callum Wordsworth, and with 20 runs needed and only Ed and Mahang left at the crease defeat was a possibility.
However, superb batting saw the 2 young guns guide the team home with Mahang finishing unbeaten on 23.
A great win, and one that was much needed and a fantastic all round effort that gives confidence that the season is certainly not over.
The 4’s were beaten by 9 wickets at Maher Stars on Staurday before recording a draw against a strong Sileby side on Sunday.
