Win :: Played on Sunday 21st August 2011
Sam Spink's magnificent 171 not out was the highlight of Knockers' win against Ightham. The score is a new Knockers record. Batting first, Knockers got off to a good start through Spink and Ed Marsh (47). Spink then continued in partnership with Guthrie Miller (30) and Alex Hume (37*) as Knockers posted an imposing 322-3, hitting a six to secure the record.
In response, Knockers bowled tightly through Hume and Matt Watts (1-6), but it was the introduction of Ollie Marsh (3-15) that fully turned the game in Knockers favour, clean bowling three Ightham batsmen. Ightham responded promisingly with some powerful shots from Andy Moody, before he was removed by Chris McDowell (1-32). Guy Howe struck with one of his trademark googlies, before the coup de grace was supplied by Stuart Seldon (2-1), taking the final two wickets to secure a good win for Knockers.
