It was a real mix of emotions in the West Kent cricket world this weekend as Holmesdale Cricket Club were sent back to Division One after losing to a plucky Sevenoaks Vine side on the penultimate weekend of the season.
A home win for Sevenoaks would see them safe for another year should Blackheath also lose, however the London side managed to record full points after beating Sandwich Town on the road. This now means that Sevenoaks need another win (or abandoned match) to secure their place in Kent’s primary division.
At the other end of the table is Tunbridge Wells, who after a fantastic season in several competitions, are sitting in second place with just one match to go. They travel to St Lawrence & Highland Court on the final day of the season hoping to score maximum points whilst leaders Lordswood take a slip at newly relegated Holmesdale.
St Lawrence will no doubt bring their A-game though with Kent player Darren Stevens likely to feature for the home side.
The permutations for relegation are far greater than those at the top, with four teams in the mix and it may all come down to who has scored the most bonus points at the end of the day. We’ll be keeping a close eye on proceedings this Saturday.
