Minster bounced back from three successive Shepherd Neame Kent League defeats in the best possible fashion by wrecking the unbeaten start to the season of rivals Upchurch.

The Division 3 leaders went into last Saturday’s derby with six wins from six matches but they were sent crashing to a seven-wicket defeat by an inspired Minster performance.

Minster captain James White had insisted before the game that his team were capable of upsetting Upchurch and his players proved him right.

White said: "That was the best team performance we have produced in the three years I have been at the club".

"I was confident before the game that the boys would rise to the challenge and they certainly did."
