Max Luckett and Owen Hinks partnership the key
Following the victory over a strong Sherwood A side three weeks previously, it was a more comfortable win over the Sherwood B team on Sunday 3 June at the Green.
Batting first, Meopham U15s collapsed to 23-4 before a mini rescue operation from Tom Fox (26) and Matthew Stibbons. Then two more quick wickets left the hosts in a precarious position at 62-6, skipper Owen Hinks was joined by Max Luckett and these two added 73 for the 7th wicket as 58 runs were smashed in the final 5 overs. Meopham U15s closed on 135-6.
In reply, Sherwood B were never in the hunt despite a fighting 23 from opener Callum MacDonald. Marcus Sinden took 2-6 in 3 overs, Matthew Stibbons 2-10 in his 3 overs, and spinner Daniel Goodbarne took 4-6 as an 88 run victory was wrapped up in the 15th over.
