Kent lose Second Eleven Trophy match at Hampshire

Tuesday 12th May 2009

KENT’S cricketers suffered a 49 run defeat in their latest Second Eleven Trophy match, away at Hampshire. After being put into bat, the home side scored 245 for seven from their 50 overs. Phil Edwards and Rob Ferley were the pick of the Kent attack with figures of two for 46 and two for 47 respectively.

In reply, Kent’s innings got off to the worst possible start as openers James Hockley and Sam Northeast were back in the pavilion with only three runs on the board. The experienced Simon Cook (pictured) gave the innings some much needed momentum and finished undefeated on 71. He received good support from all-rounder Matt Coles who hit 62 but it wasn’t enough as Hampshire registered a 49-run victory.

Kent’s Second Eleven are back in action next Tuesday when they take on Hampshire again, this time in a three-day Championship match at The Rose Bowl.
