Whitstable Cricket Club lifted the ECB Indoor National Club
Championship with victory at Lord's on Sunday.
Following on from Canterbury's success in the competition last
year, Whitstable again brought the title back to Kent by defeating
Blaydon CC who were also the beaten finalists 12 months ago.
Having overcome Poole Town in the Southern semi-final,
Whitstable won the toss and elected to field first in the
Blaydon were all out for 91 off 11.5 overs and
Whitstable controlled their reply and had scored 46 from the
first three overs thanks to openers Byron Gould and Tom
Richardson was run out for 20 but Campbell continued the assured
batting. Byron Gould retired on 27 not out and after Tegg was
caught by Pollard off the bowling of Varley for 0, Whitstable had
captain James Loader and Josh Gould at the crease.
With overs in hand the Whitstable pair took their time and with
the scores level, Varley pushed a ball down leg-side for a wide to
give the Kent side victory by three wickets.
