Match Report

This result made it three wins in three consecutive matches that the Royal Air Force have won this fixture, although it was a relatively close finish with two overs in hand.

Carby Dawkins(Handsworth) top scored, with an exact half-century for the Conference, with some good support from Halesowen player Ishtiaq Mohammed making 43 runs. Several of the other Conference batsmen were out to careless shots, but Laeq Chisti made 31 runsand Mark Fisher kept things going to the end with 23 not out.

After losing early wickets, R.Diver 32 and T Adcock 27 retrieved the situation for the RAF, followed by a good middle order knock from A.Fisher of 39. With seven wickets down, the Conference were in with a chance, but the RAF batted sensibly to get home fairly comfortably with three wickets and two overs in hand. Russell Spires, was at home on his own ground, taking 2-19 off his ten overs including a spectacular caught and bowle. The Conference's leading bowler was Dan Broughton with 3-42.

This was the first representative game for Conference to be played at Kibworth on a ground that hosts Leicestershire Second XI games.
