Dragons vs. Yellowhammers 2015

After many years of contemplating a fixture against Tenterden, it was good to play at this excellent ground against quality opposition. The Dragons were soon in trouble against a lively spell from B Twine – 40-5 after twelve overs. However, in turn Tim Golds, Simon Arnold and Joe Peck offered Ross Davies good support as he rescued the innings with a fine 73 with an array of fine shots.

Where he had bowled well for little reward on the Sunday, Sam Boyns, on this occasion took the wickets that he richly deserved. With Yellowhammers struggling at 8-2, he ripped the heart out of the middle order, returning the excellent figures of 6.5-2-27-5. Matt Banes batted valiantly but in a vain attempt to rescue the innings his fine 63* was not enough to rescue the run chase as he ran out of partners after 38 overs.
