Yellowhammers 291 – 2, J. O’Neill 108
Sussex Martlers 292 – 6, Daniel Wells 117, Adam Davies 78
The ever strong Yellowhammers lost the toss and were inserted due to the unbelievably good batting wicket that always seems to be produced at Tonbridge. The bowlers on both sides toiled all day without much luck and the Yellowhammers reached 291-2 declared. 18 year old J. O’Neill scored 108. The declaration was very generous giving the Martlets 49 overs in reply. Daniel Wells scored 117 and Adam Davies 78 as the Martlets were in a commanding position of 240 for 1 with 10 overs remaining. The manager made the bold claim of saying he would retire if the Martlets did not win from this position and suddenly five wickets fell! The managers blushes were saved as the Martlets crossed the line 6 down and 292 on the board. A day for batters in 30 degree heat for once! Having lost to the Yellowhammers a couple of years in a row it was pleasing to get a win.
