Newenden continued their assault on the Division 5 title with another convincing victory, their third in a row.

The day had started badly with a water pipe bursting on Lossenham Lane, which meant that a sizeable stream had made it's way down to the square. Some swift engineering work, marshalled by Peter Bourne, meant that some well positioned sandbags kept the water at bay for the duration of the game.

The scene was perfect, the sun was beating down on perfectly manicured NCG and we were joined by at least thirty spectators who had made their way down from Giles Thorbek's 21st birthday celebrations the night before. They wanted to be entertained and we did not disappoint.

Having lost the toss(really need to work at this), we were put into the field. The first few overs didn't go well, with their openers seeing them through to 33 without loss, before stand in opening bowler Browning worked his magic and bowled their dangerous looking number one

Rummery then came to the fore, first taking their other opener, following a sharp catch by Bourne at backward point, then trapping their next man LBW two balls later. Kingsnorth were now wobbling at 48-3. They never really recovered.

By now wicket-machine Bradney had joined the fray and helped himself to three more wickets, taking his tally to 18 for the season. This included a very sharp caught and bowled, diving low on his follow through. Simpson bowled a tidy little spell from the Pavilion End before being replaced by Boland.

Boland was soon amongst the wickets, making a very hard caught and bowled look particularly simple, then picking up his second, with a big top edge to the keeper. Rummery then returned to finish things off and leave Kingsnorth well short at 118 All Out.

We were then treated to another exceptional tea. I am fast running out of superlatives. This time it was the turn of the Pipers. We were taken on a global gastronomic journey, with dishes from each of the nations represented at the Cricket World Cup. We had jerk chicken wraps from the West Indies, pakoras from India, Vegemite sausage rolls from Australia and even a delicious mango lassi from Pakistan. It was a wonderful concept and superbly executed. Well done to you all.

118 was always going to be a tricky little chase, and we lost Smith early trying to pull one that didn't get up. Browning and Rummery then took the attack to the bowlers and we had raced through to 62 from ten overs before Browning was bowled.

Rummery continued to accumulate runs, with useful contributions from Piper and Bourne, with us finally bring up the winning runs after 21 overs.

It was another clinical performance and one which takes us up to third in the table with a game in hand. You can click on the link below to see the table.
