Mixed fortunes for Kenilworth as first team collapse to 60 all out

CRICKET: KENILWORTH travelled to Weoley Hill for their latest Warwickshire Division One fixture.

The home side batted first and were helped by the fine form of Homer who hit 84.

He was backed up by Graham who made 48 and Garghan with 25.

Weoley finished their innings having made 265/7 from their 50 overs.

Wicket takers for Kenilworth were Jorjeet Singh who picked up three wickets for just 39 runs from his 12 overs.

Dave Edmunds picked up a wicket for 49 runs while youngster Freddie Davies took two wickets for 55 runs.

Kenilworth made a disastrious start in reply as they lost their opening wicket for just two runs.

They later fell to 21/3 and then 49/6 in just the 13th over.

Wickets continued to fall as Kenilworth slumped to 60/7 which soon became 60 all out in just 21 overs.

Kenilworth had no answer to the Weoley Hill bowling, with Chadwick taking an unbelievable five wickets for just seven runs while Donovan chipped in with three wickets of his own.

Opener Phil Edmonds (21) and Dave Edmunds (23) were the only Kenilworth scorers worth noting.


Aston Manor hosted Kenilworth’s 2nd XI on Saturday in Warwickshire Division Seven.

Kenilworth batted first, opening pair Mark Stranks and Dan Horner made a solid start to their side’s innings.

Both players found the boundary on regular occasions – and when Horner fell, the pair added a fine 86 in 17 overs.

Further partnerships with Stranks by Ben Whidborne – who made 29 – and young Elliott Sorrel – with 19 – allowed Stanks to continue batting as he made a brilliant hundred, he eventually fell for 104. Kenilworth posted 236 all out from their fifty overs.

Rake starred with the ball for Aston Manor, taking an impressive six wickets for 44 runs from 9 overs.

He was backed up by Woakes who took two wickets for 32.

Aston Manor lost early wickets in reply as they slipped to 30/4.

Woakes (26) and Hasseem (13) added 31 for their team’s fifth wicket, but they had no answer to the experience of fast bowler Pete Alty.

Alty went on to single handedly remove Aston’s batmen one by one as he finished with figures of eight wickets for 36 runs.

Skipper Geoff Edmunds took the remaining two wickets for eight runs as Aston reached 75 in just 23 overs.

Kenilworth won by a massive 151 runs and collected 24 points for their efforts.
