C.E.C.C.| Shepherds Cot | Crouch End | North London | N8 8JJ
It is days like last Saturday that make us all play cricket. Forget the ‘freezing cold double jumper’ days or the ‘standing around looking at rain cloud’ days, Saturday was perfect. The conditions as I arrived at Crouch End were sunny and already hot. I am sure that…Continue
“The fewer men, the greater share of honour” said Henry V before laying into the French on Crispin’s Day (or so Shakespeare had it). So with us against the Bush. Just nine of us, and we lost the toss, and had to field in baking heat.
But we few, we happy few, we band of brothers, got stuck in.
After 26 overs the Bush were 62 for 4. They did not seem able to find the holes in our field. Yours truly was pinning down one end, and at the other Pappu, Symon and Anisul moved the…Continue
Having already beaten Brondesbury this season, their captain had a clever plan up his sleeve to combat the Mo Missiles. This started by him sending off one of his players umpiring for trying to give one of his batsmen out lbw.

So we enter the second half of the season on the back of a good win last week. There have been many positive signs that our fortunes are turning in the last few weeks and we hoped to continue this good work against the Tamils. Being woken up by the rain hammering down in the night before brought back the bad 'Baptism of Fire' memories of the first meeting at MTSCC on the opening day. However, there was to be no 'covers Jenga' this time and everything was 'set fair' as we turned up at…Continue
Both games are ON.…

Every December in every Premier League season we are subjected to those classic footballing clichés about "being bottom at Christmas..." and "being too good to go down".

Parallels could be drawn with the situation we find ourselves in at the half way point of this season ...
Fast forward to our game on Saturday against Kenton, which…Continue
