24 Sep – Season ends with a win – Highgate Iregulars were the visitors for the last scheduled game. Batting first, we made 202-7 with 40’s from both Az And Haseeb. The Irregulars fell 25 runs short, as JD and Kaiz picked up 3 wickets each.

23 Sep Not quite Caribbean weather but ….A fine 69 not out from Jimmy Pickard was the foundation for a 3 wicket win over Luton Caribbean. Ian Dyde made 35 not out as we chased down 166 with 10 ovesr to spare

10 Sep – defeat in low scoring game at Amersham – A career best 72 not out from Ian Dyde was the highlight in a disappointing total of 135, which the hosts chased down for the loss of 6 wickets

9 Sep – Big win for revenge – having lost to Great Gaddesen the previous Sunday, roles were reversed as Kaiz Ul Haq (87) and Azeem Akhtar (72*)  set up an impressive total of 331-8. In reply GG were dimissed for 132 with the wickets shared amongst the bowlers.

3 Sep – Loss to local rivals – the Sunday side made the short journey to Great Gaddesden, but lost by 43 runs.

2 Sep – A win in the final league game – Leverstock Green arrived neeing just a handful of points to secure promotion (and possibly top spot in the table). Batting first we scored 185 with Jimmy Pickard leading the way with 58. At 180 for 7 and plenty of overs left it looked like a certain win for the (now) champions, but then 3 wickets fell without any addition to the total to give us a fine victory.

 

 

 

 

    Website has been updated to a new platform (WordPress). In theory it will be easier to maintain and keep updated with latest releases. Please bear with us (me!) during the transition period, and report any issues via the webadmin link in the ‘About Us / Contact Us’ menu item.

    I am aware that some of the match report links from archived seasons are not correct, but I am working through these. Additional older seasons will also be added gradually.
