Wellington Midweek XI hosted Kenty touring side Newington in a 20/20 match last Friday evening and in between heavy showers and glorious sunshine the tourists won by 19 runs.
Choosing to bat first Newington got off to a good start as Khan with 23 and J.Perry with 30 added 52 for their first wicket before Ben Evett’s leg spinners got two wickets quite close together.
J.Overbury’s quickfire 36 got Newington to an imposing 137-4 in 18 overs as some overs were lost to rain.
Macaulay Campbell and Jack Beal took the other wickets for Wellington.
The highlight of Wellington’s innings was Tom Hawkings who carried his bat for 50no; he worked the ball well around the whole arena and deserved his success.
Rob Moysey with 15, Des Campbell with 18 and James Bath with 12 all made good contributions with the bat for Wellington too as they ran out of overs at 118-4.
