Skinner's School v CP

Wed 11th July 2018 at 14.00
The School won by 4 wickets
Played at The Nevill Ground, TN2 5ES

Match Report

It was a privilege for both sides to pay at the famous Nevil ground in Tunbridge Wells.  Batting first against a useful opening attack, XL initially made slow progress but a mid-innings run injection led us to a competitive total with Jon Thornton batting through for 80*.

The school lost both openers when the spinners came on. The third wicket pair rode their luck and then played some good shots before a mid-innings collapse.  More aggressive batting by the 7th wicket pair saw the school home before both sides dispersed to watch the World Cup semi final!

Many thanks to Skinners for a lovely day,
