Wicket takers were Harry Joblin, Henry Bridges , Edward Clapham & Ollie Jones with one apiece, Benjie Nieuwboudt (2) & Harry Stafford with 4. For Nonnington, Bowmna, Spurgeoon and Hughes contributed with the bat

When Folkestone replied, Noah White (26) & Edward Clapham (14) shared an opening partnership of 48, and it was a similar story throughout the rest of the innings, with Louis Smith (22), Harry Joblin (12) and Harry Stafford (34) all making double figures as Folkestone closed on 346, winning by 144 runs.

Man of the match was Benjie Nieuwboudt, who battled through illness to take his place in the team.
