The evening, held at the Novotel, with over 200 guests in attendance was made more special as the Second XI picked up the County 4 West Title. The First XI under the excellent Captaincy of former Hythe Colt Tom Richards won the League by the smallest of margins ~ beating Parley by 1 point. Tom Gates (683 runs), Matt Young (433 runs), Hakim Peruzi (429 runs) & Andrew Wakely (424 runs) were acknowledged for their First team runs whilst Andrew Wakely (30 wkts) & Wayne Royan (20 wkts) were praised for their bowling. Matt Howe was superb behind the stumps. fantastic season for Hythe meant to him. Since the awards Hythe have also been accepted into the Southern Premier Cricket League for 2019 = a huge achievement considering they still play their cricket in the setting of the Ewart Recreation Ground. Hythe were constantly being told by other clubs that the Southern League wouldn’t accept clubs that played their cricket in a park = but with the hard work of club members looking after their square and the excellent work done by Hythe & Dibden Parish Council Supervisor Leigh Morgan and his staff on the outfield, their accreditation was accepted and Hythe can enjoy top grade cricket for the first time since 1988. The club has come a long way since those days when after leaving the Southern League Hythe slipped down the Hampshire Pyramid with 5 relegations in 5 years. More recently though Hythe have celebrated 4 promotions in 5 years with many of the First & Second team players coming up though the Colts system and whilst the Hampshire League continues to lose teams (that fold) at an alarming rate, the Jones Lane Club can still put out 4 league sides every Saturday and with a Sunday side and 4 Colts sides and a Ladies W10 team the futures still healthy. So 2019 is going to be a massive challenge for the club.
