C.E.C.C.| Shepherds Cot | Crouch End | North London | N8 8JJ
Dateline 24.5.14 Edmonton
What a game! We triumphed not only over Shepherds Bush, but also over the British weather.
We racked up 201 from 40 overs, losing an hour to rain and declaring early to leave the oppo the same number. Highlights were a 73 run opening partnership between Simon (20) and KK (47) and with extras also making an impressive contribution. After Simon was out wickets fell regularly.

Should have further update at 10.30am

Having kept Perivale down to a decent 152/6, the 4ths needed only 22 to win or 4 for a winning draw, both of which were thrown away at the death by the kind of strokes usually associated with hemiplegia and slurred speech.
But to start in a more positive light, the bowling overall was tight, notably Des…Continue
There was a point in the middle of Saturday afternoon that will live long in my memory. I was standing in the time warp that was MTSCC's adopted bar (- I've always liked wood panelling by the way) watching the rain tip down with one eye and lots of people having fun and getting drunk at a wedding reception with the other. Rob, my predecessor who…Continue
