Kennington Triumph in Majorca
Kennington Cricket Club return from their post-season tour to Majorca as champions.
In the opening game against West Hallam Kennington reached a formidable 191 for 5 led by Grant Langfield with 84 from 45 balls supported by Josh Last’s 53 from 36. Though only winning by 8 runs the margin of victory was only that narrow due to 21 from the final over with the game already in the bag.
Batting first against Balearic champions Mallorca Kennington again reached a challenging score of 173 for 7, Langfield again top scoring with 45 backed up by Nathan Last’s 36. In reply the hosts were never in the contest with tight spells from Chris Drakeley, David Finch and Peter Grant.
The following day’s return match with West Hallam saw Kennington restrict the northerners to just 112 for 6 with an all slow attack including impressive contributions from veteran Ray Lancaster and overseas star Dev Patel. The runs were easily achieved in just 11 overs with another fine 50 by Josh Last from 30 balls and 21 by Chris Watts from 13.
Tour sponsors Applicado Cheer were represented by owner Adrian Blakeley who generously covered the cost of the fantastic tour shirts.
