Robertsbridge II 252-5 Hellingly III 231-8
Robertbridge was back to its' free scoring best on Saturday and skipper Paul Johnson opted to bat after winning the toss. Johnson(84) was backed by his team as he put on 103 with Paul Nice(54) and 76 with Josh Goodsell(52no). Danny De Oliveira(5-0-27-2) did manage to snaffle a couple of wickets as the home team chased more runs but a target of over 250 is a good one to set. Hellingly's reply was kept in check as Ben Lingard(9-2-58-3) took early wickets backed by the control of Lewis Chapman(9-1-29-1) at the other end. Kaylan Oruganti(80) gave his side a chance until he was caught by Johnson from the bowling of Harry Wills(9-0-44-1). The lower order tried to get close but catches were held and they ended 21 runs short.
Rye III 343-5 Robertsbridge III 154
This game was played at Northiam with both Captains wanting to bat first on a flat looking track. Rye won the toss so Robertsbridge took to the field. John Mackenzie(153) was soon into his stride and went on to hit fifteen fours and ten sixes as he made the most of the conditions and being dropped when on only 10. Catches may well not win matches but they went along way to shaping this one. When Mackenzie retired it did allow Robertsbridge to take a few wickets but at the other end Martin Duffield(108no) helped himself to a steady century of his own-which even included some quick singles! Having spent a great deal of time retreiving the ball from the boundary the Robertsbridge team set about the run chase and at times found runs equally easy to come by with Antony Bryant(40) and Grant Cooper(42) to the fore. David Goddard(9-0-25-4) was the only bowler who was able to maintain some control on the day and he made sure any slim chance was not to be. Young Toby Channon(3.3-0-26-3) recovered well from a bad first over to remove the equally young Robertsbridge tail and finish the game in the 31st over.
