Shepherd Neame Kent Cricket League Premier Division round-up

Hartley clinched the Kent League Premier Division title after receiving 10 points from Saturday’s incomplete game against Sandwich Town at Culvey Close.

Second-placed Sevenoaks Vine, who despite having a game in hand (at Tunbridge Wells on Monday), cannot catch Hartley now.

Sandwich posted 275 all-out before the rain arrived during the tea break.
