Rain Halts The Vagabonds
With Hythe well set for another win ~ Rain abandoned the game just after tea
Hythe welcomed the colourful Vagabonds back to Jones Lane for their annual fixture.

A solid start from O'Connor & Flanagan took the score to 55-0 after 14 however soon after O'Connor was bowled by Hyde for 18 and soon after Flanagan followed ~ bowled by Davidson for 29.
Tom Richards (top scorer last week) made just 1 before he was bowled by Hyde. At drinks Hythe had moved onto 73-3 with Jamie Meredith looking menacing.
Meredith & 64 for the 4th wicket before Mason was run out for 38. Meredith continued to hit runs and brought up a fine fifty. Sanderson 7 Taylor fell at the other end by Shaun Moss and Meredith added 47 for the 7th wicket before Meredith retired 76*. Moss finished 27* as Hythe ended on 235 for 7 after 40 overs.
With rain clouds looming over the tea break Hythe managed just 7 overs at the Vagabonds before play was halted. Kev McCarthy did manage to bowl Hutchins in that time for 1.~ Vagabonds 19-1 after 7 at the close.
Such a shame as the opponents had travelled down from near Guildford.
