Meanwhile, Rob Key says the Clydesdale Bank 40 drubbing against
Sussex Sharks wasn’t the sole reason why Kent Spitfires missed out
on a semi-final spot.

Bears beating below-strength Yorkshire Carnegie conspired to end
Spitfires’ hopes of a place in the last four, having started the

The skipper conceded it was the two games against Unicorns

Key says his side’s focus will now be on keeping their promotion
hopes alive in the final three LV= County Championship Division 2
matches, the latest of which, against Leicestershire, began at
Grace Road on Tuesday.
Derbyshire visit Canterbury next Tuesday (10.30am).
