2015-16 ICC Results
Kent 1st Team results click
The 1st team continued in there wining ways at the play-off’s wining all 3 matches against some tough competition, the weekend started well with a 9-2 win over Lancashire 2. In the afternoon Kent played Dorset who had just lost to Staffordshire in the morning, this was a much tougher game and it went to the last game with Kent emerging with a 6-5 win. Sunday morning and with several players battling with illness and injury niggles the team had another hard game, this time it was Staffordshire who had won both games on Saturday as well, so this was going to be tough as Staffordshire also had a 1 point advantage over us. The match was decided in the first mixed and Kent took another 6-5 victory to end the weekend with a clean sheet.
The team all played well, with great team spirit, all supporting each other throughout the weekend, it was a pleasure to spend the weekend with them all and I hope they will continue the wining ways next season.
Congratulations to Jo Muggeridge, Tracey Middleton, Gemma Whiting, Erin Parkes, Carl Baxter, Rory Easton, Ryan Staden, Paul Freeman, Lawrence Nemestothy and Shaun Parr.
