4th XI v. Hornsey 4th (h) Sat 28th June

Prospects for any play seemed unlikely at 1pm in Edmonton for the 4th XI’s home game against Hornsey 4ths.  But by 2pm the skies brightened and with it the groundsman’s demeanour; and a soggy game ensued.  The toss was lost and Crouch End’s innings made a soggy start.  On a slow pitch runs only seemed possible from extravagant hits which led to several cross-batted departures and a run rate after twenty overs scarcely above three an over.  The innings was rescued however by a…

3rd XI vs Osterley 4s - 'I'd love it ...'

The weather - sponsored by R. Russell

The 3rd XI bandwagon rolled in to our adopted home at Edmonton this week against Osterley, who were second in the table.  With the prospect of a tough game, we arrived in good time to practice some light fielding manoeuvres and a series of stretches ( - ladies of Europe, watch…

3rd XI v Wembley 4s - 'Pretty in pink'

"I'll come off my short run up today, skip ..."

Our mini tour of famous sporting venues took us to Wembley this week.  Following last week’s capitulation away at Twickenham, it was important to get back on track.  A menacing grey cloud greeted us as we arrived and it quickly decided to empty itself on us and the ‘hallowed…

3rd XI vs Twickenham 5s - 'Second half horror show'

It is not the best way to prepare for a cricket match when you set off from home and have to put your rain jacket on.  The sight of me with my cricket bag under my umbrella trudging through the downpour brought an encouraging "You're optimistic mate" from a passer-by.  He clearly doesn't know about club cricketers, as we are probably the most optimistic of all amateur sportsman and can spot a patch of blue (or slightly less grey) sky from miles away.  I was still optimistic upon…

4ths vs Edmonton 7.6.14

A glorious win.  268 for 8 off 42 overs, and then we bowled out Edmonton for 135.  Here are the notable features:

Wind up of the day:  The oppo captain refused to start the game for an hour and a quarter.  “That run-up is dangerous. Someone could break an ankle!”

True, there was a moist patch a few feet back of the stumps, due to water having drained off the covers, but the ground was firm and the action areas were dry as dust.  Mister Health and Safety refused to…

The 4ths Caught Out in Alexandra Park

If you want to see a thriller in Manilla, a 1999 last minute winner or a they think it's all over - it is now, come and watch the 4ths this season.  The nail-biting drama following Mo's Madmen continued at AP this week, this time with a bright start and a flailing end in batting, followed by a stiff upper lip and a tantalising finish in bowling, all ending in tears and a what might have been in the post-match analysis.
After winning the toss, Simon T. (from a packet of three on…

3rd XI vs Winchmore Hill 4s - 'Finally up and running' ...

The scoreboard says it all - we won and we won well.  It was our first win of our so far stop/start season and my first as skipper.  To win was very pleasing but the manner in which we did it was even more pleasing, and very promising.  But how did we do it?

Firstly we took the field with eleven players for the first time this year.  Even better…
