Old Wilsonians' 2nd Xl 130, Bexleyheath 131 for 4
The inclement conditions reduced this game to 35 overs and the OWs made heavy weather, pardon the pun, of their innings and were bowled out in the 35th over for a modest 130, Sam Montgomery 3 for 17 and Aython Adams, 2 for 7 doing most of the damage, with only Dan Seston (41) and Danny Phillips (26) making any real impact on the home side's bowlers
Bexleyheath then lost an early wicket but after that Ravi Patel (48), George Monk (39 n.o) and John Olutawo saw them home to a comfortable six wicket victory
Beckenham 5th Xl 182 for 9, Old Wilsionians' 5th Xl 150
Some positive and enterprising batting by Will Peters (56) and Glenroy Hylton (46) provided Beckenham with more than half of their runs against Old Wilsonians, for whom Matthew Carruthers, Grahame Nelson and Steve Lawrence all took two wickets
In reply the OWs soon slumped to 41 for 4, thanks mainly to some fine pace bowling by Hameed Ullah, who dismissed their top three and eventually finished with figures of 3 for 18 from 10 overs
However Zac Desouza (38) and Laurence Allen (22) then gave the hosts hope before it was the turn of Tilal Patel to put in a fine spell of 4 for 28 and although Matthew Carruthers (20) and Nick Herbert (9 n.o) shared a defiant last wicket stand of 31, it was Beckenham who claimed the spoils with a 32 run victory
