First XI – had a frustrating draw away at Chichester. Batting first Hill scored 226 all out, Kev Ramsay scoring 78 and Joe Maskell 30. Maskell then took 5-44 as Chichester collapsed to 66-7 but as we’ve seen earlier before this season, Hill were unable to press home their advantage and secure 30 points as Chichester ended 186-8. Report.
Second XI – beat Buxted Park by six wickets to continue their fine run of form. Buxted scored 240-9 with wickets shared amongst the bowlers. In reply half centuries from Akeem Ifill (74) and Phil Wickwar (67 not out) with support from Matt Charman (30 not out) saw Hill home inside 44 overs.
Third XI – lost by four wickets to Preston Nomads IV. Hill batted first and scored 209-9 declared. Mason Foley scored a fantastic 77 and was ably supported by Andrew Davies who scored 40. Nomads scored freely in reply knocking the 210 required off just 31.2 overs.
Fourth XI – lost to Poynings II by 36 runs on Saturday. Poynings scored 189-9 in 47 overs Charlie Hepburn, Tristan Hepburn and Alec Hepburn taking seven of the nine wickets, James Heath with the other two. Tom Booth scored 24 in Hill’s reply and Charlie Hepburn’s 44 and Tristan Hepburn’s 21 not out completed a good day for the Hepburn family despite defeat.
Womens XI – played a T20 game on Sunday beating Hurstpierpoint by two wickets. Hurst scored 99 all out in just over 17 overs with over half their runs coming from their opening bat who scored 56 not out. Hill responded by winning in the final over, Charley Hepburn retiring on 31, Izzy Dreamer scored 25 and Emily Hodgkinson also scored 25.
