Kent Super 8s Round 2 – Tenterden CC
Another fantastic display by the Castle Hill under 9’s at Tenterden yesterday comfortably winning all four of their matches and so qualifying for the Kent finals in August.
Joy of joys, for the second week in a row we had NO RUN OUTS ! Team spirit was excellent and the improvement in all the boys since the beginning of the season is great to see. The other pleasing thing was how few wides were bowled and some excellent fielding.
