Culley crashes century as Kilmington draw at Kenn

Kilmington claimed a winning draw from their visit to Kenn.

Batting first the villagers were led to a very respectable 258-8 by Adam Culley’s magnificent 102.

Izzy Wickramaratne also chipped in with 39. But the hosts dug in and closed their reply on 201-5.

The results leaves Kilmington in the bottom three with this weekend’s visit from leaders Kentisbeare marking the completion of the first third of the 2011 league season.

The club’s second eleven had their home game with Kenn all done and dusted long before the schedule tea interval with the match completed before 4pm!

There was precious little indication of what was to come with Kenn, batting first, and on a solid 30 without loss.

Then Tom Wallis worked up a head of steam to claim a fivefer, fellow opening bowler Jack Larcombe and skipper Steve Morris each bagged a brace and the Kenn innings was blown way for a paltry 54!
