The runs continued to flow at SCC on Sunday in another high scoring game. Shah won the toss and decided to have a bowl, but hadn’t counted on Robert Miller launching an early attack on the Saltwood bowlers. By the time Miller (43) finally fell to Shaun Carey, his opening partner Matt W had notched up just 8 runs.
Matt fell to the returning Barry Wire with the total on 99-4 leaving Cowlo and Paul Rodway to form a partnership of 95. Tim W chipped in with 22 at the end, leaving Aldington very happy on 245-9 from their 40 overs. Pick of the bowlers – Shah 9 overs 4 for 38 and Barry 9 overs 4 for 24. Read More
A fantastic win for Saltwood, played in good spirit against a nice bunch of lads from Minster CC. After winning the toss and putting Minster into bat, Cowlo’s decision wasn’t looking to bright at 70 for no wicket. A change of bowling and a great run-out proved to be the inspiration for a mini collapse, taking Minster from 70-0 to 97-4.
Minster’s batsmen Mark Richardson, Llewellyn Boucher, and Paul Lee steadied the ship and got them up to a competitive 236 for 9 from their 46 overs. Graham Semadini was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 34 off his 12 overs. Read More
After a week of rain it was nice to see the sun returning for our match against Herne Bay CC. Cowlo lost the toss and Saltwood were put in to bat against the opening pair of Beeson and Gillard. With Jeremy (4) still banned from the cut shot until 1st June he decided to use his pads instead but found that standing right in front of the stumps was not a good plan of action. Grenville worked hard with the middle order but we were unable to get a decent partnership together with Dan C (10) and Arthur (15) falling cheaply....Read More

With predictions of rain sweeping in at 5pm there were calls for a 20/20 match from back seat captains, but this was quickly ignored. With Captain Shah phoning in his orders to stand-in Dan Cowell, Saltwood won the toss and elected to bat despite Ian’s life long rule of bowling first.
‘Fresh’ from his 55 the previous day, G decided to conserve his energy for the next round of league matches by getting bowled for 0 in the first over and was quickly joined by Tom Carr (0) leaving Saltwood on the verge of an epic collapse at 5-2. Read More
