T20 Finals Day – 10th August

23 Jul 2014 - Gavan Burden

Here is an email from Peter Hanrott, organiser of the Kent, Surrey, Sussex T20 competition.  Make a date for your diary of finals day, 10th August.  Looks like we’re playing TWells again!!!  Congratulations guys.

—————————————————————————————————

Dear all,

On Sunday Sevenoaks visited Oxted for the final pool match of the KSS T20 Preliminary rounds. In front of a crowd of more than 1000 people Vine demonstrated the gulf in class between Kent Prem and Surrey Div 4 making short work of Oxted’s sub par 113. Oxted’s performance also showed signs that the players were suffering the after effects of the beer festival , which whilst having been a big success off the field had left some tired and sore heads about the place.  No Excuses, Vine were better in all aspects and would have won whatever the excesses enjoyed by our players during a riotous weekend on Master Park that included a streaker invading the pitch during Saturdays Surrey Championship match against Old Hamptionians in front of a crowd of more than 3000. I wonder when the last time that happened outside of international cricket.

Sadly over at Tunbridge, Chipstead were forced to concede their final pool match so the line-up for finals day is as follows:

So Finals Day details are as follows:

Final

Master Park 4.30 pm

We have decided to stage all games on Master Park. We have 4 changing rooms in the pavilion so logistically it will work and it will make it a more social occasion for players and spectators alike if everything is concentrated in one place but it does mean an early start. We cannot promise crowds of 3000 people but we are going to ensure it is an occasion and we will be advertising it locally. We plan a mini-beer fest with a beer tent, 12-18 barrels of Westerham Ale and a beer garden a “Brai” style BBQ plus our friendly pizza van, picket fences etc., some music and commentary. We hope it will be an event  to remember.  Please can you give all your club supporters the heads up. Given the quality we saw from Sevenoaks on Sunday it should be a feast of T20 cricket and if the sun shines, a brilliant day to be on Master Park.  If the weather looks iffy we will take a view on the on Saturday morning –
You are welcome to bring your own umpire but if you can’t provide one let us know in advance.

 

More to follow.
