CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
For the first time in 56 years a team from the County League had come down into the Middlesex Championship. Early season bloomers Crouch End would test their progress against one of the mouthiest sides in 57 years of cricket.
Omar lost the toss again and was delighted to get his way again. We batted, Omar briefly, most poorly. Phil Jenkins looked to be finding some form before adjudged LBW, Crouch End again found themselves having to dig… Continue

This one needed quite a spirited post mortem in the Three Hammers afterwards. The 3rds put Brentham in, failed to make any impression with the new ball and had a long, hot afternoon in the field. It was no mean achievement to limit Brentham to 226 for 7 in their 50 overs, but the run-chase never materialised and Crouch End had to settle for one point for a losing draw on 126 for 9.
Liam never found his rhythm, Hamid pitched consistently short and Brentham got off to a flyer. James… Continue

1st XI away v pinner
another saturday another easy win !!
Once again Rob Jenkins got his money worth bowling 45 out of the 55 overs. The other overs were shared between Mr Goswami, JJ, Syed and a debut over from skipper Khan.
Pinner were dreadful with the bat, we were poor in the 14 acre field.
Great slip catch from the coach, Kevin made a gully catch look easy and 2 good… Continue

Crouch End: 101/5 in 32.2 overs.
M.Anstee: 32*, K. Alexander: 25
Having lost the first game to Srilankan Cavaliers, Crouch End took the field
with more purpose and vigor which was clearly visible in their bowling and
fielding. Mohsinul and Ray Khan stuck to the task even…

The 3rds came away from Edmonton with a hard-fought win on Sat 15th. Despite a few stutters on the way they posted 243 for 7 off 46 overs and brought Edmonton’s spirited run chase to a close just 14 runs short.
The Crouch End innings fell into several distinct phases. Simon and Sri started up well until the opposition realised that most of the runs were coming off the back foot. Sri’s run-out, for 19, to a direct hit, brought Tim to the wicket who survived a slightly irresponsible… Continue

Sunday friendly, home vs Enfield North
Match format:: 40overs
Crouch End 236-8
Enfield North 7-0 (3.5 overs)
Match abandoned due to precipitative intervention of the biblical variety.
Following the previous day’s record set by Crouch End teams 1, 2 and 3, the Sunday friendly team had a bit of a job to do to make it 4 in 4, especially when considering their record over the last few years, writes Kenneth Bazley. That they put themselves in a good position to win the… Continue

ROBERT HOOD AND HIS MERRY MEN
Robert Jenkins took 5 wickets from poor Pinner and gave it to the rich Crouch Enders.
A superb opening spell from James Jenkins reduced confidence striken Pinner to a faltering start. While two stumpings from Ranil, Maid Marrion to my Robin Hood and a bizarre Hit-Wicket saw Pinner reduced to 110-8.
Big hits was how the peasants responded, just about maintained by Little John 'Syed' and Robin of… Continue

Monitise, a City-based financial mobile software company, made their debut in Crouch End - they turned up in two A-Team style vans with the look of seasoned cricket pros :o) The teams were mixed between regular Crouch Enders and Monitise cricketers. The atmosphere was tense, with each side hungry to comprehensively humilate the other side. 17:45, the 20:20 showdown had started.....
Manas won the toss and put in Rob Youdale's team. Crouch Ender, Bernard George, cemented a good start… Continue

Being put in to bat on a slow, low pitch against some tidy bowling the 3rds found runs difficult to come by against Lohana 3rds at Mill Hill on Saturday. In trying to push things along Simon ran himself out, Sri, Rob and James, when given a whiff of a hittable ball all found fielders; and it was only through the dogged efforts of Richard (37), with support from Wasif, Phil and Felix that the score was dragged along to a total of 100 in the… Continue
