Kennington CC 1st XI Crowned League Champions
In a surprise turn of events, Kennington CC 1st XI have finished top of the Kent Regional Cricket League Division 1A Central, gaining promotion to Championship East in 2013.
Huge thanks and congratulations go to captain Chris Watts and to everyone who has represented the 1st XI this year. A fantastic effort from everyone and a well deserved promotion.
Having been level on points with Holcombe and Bluebell Hill going into their final game, Kennington 1st XI required maximum points from their final game against The Mote at home, and for Holcombe to fail to acquire the full 20 points against Lordswood. Losing the toss, Kennington were put in to bat and scored a respectable 215 on a pitch with uneven bounce. Kennington then went on to bowl The Mote out for 80, and with news that Holcombe and Bluebell Hill had failed to bowl Lordswood out and claim the full 20 points, were proclaimed champions of the 2012 Kent Regional Cricket League Division 1A Central.
