Guyanese all-rounder Kellon Carmichael continues to enjoy his stint with English side Goring Cricket Club, registering a century and taking four scalps in last weekend match against hosts Stenying Cricket Club in the Sussex Premier League.

The former national junior player bagged 4-25 as he orchestrated the demolition against his counterparts, who folded for a paltry first innings score of 75 all out. He then returned with the bat to record a top score of 105 in his team’s total of 250-8 declared.

The 28-year-old has not disappointed since becoming a free agent earlier this year when he was snapped up by the English Club.

Earlier in the league Carmaichael was at the centre of Goring’s success against Hastings and Leonard’s Cricket Club in the Sussex Premier League. The right handed batsman hit a cameo of 30 from 23 in his team’s innings of 290-5 in 45 overs .

He later returned to destroy the opposition with figures of 5-30 from six overs of medium fast bowling as they folded for 81.

In the Greater London League, the dapper Malteenoes Sports Club (MSC) player smashed 81 and took 4-35 in a sterling win for Sabina over Aztecs Cricket Club.

Against Seven Kings Cricket Club, Carmichael claimed three wickets and blasted 58 in a losing effort.

Carmaichael said his aim is focusing on finishing atop of the batting and bowling standings, so his team will fare well at the end of the season.
