Wild Cards vs Palm Tree - Sunday August 30th

Things started badly for Crouch End. At the scheduled start time of 12:30 we were 2 men light, skip had lost the toss and CECC were asked to field. By the time we took to the field we were up to 10, but Bobby was stuck somewhere on the M1 behind a pile up. Although this would mean more running around for the other 10 fielders, it was to prove a key moment in the game.  More on that later.

Shashi and Ruskin opened the bowling and although they both bowled well, wickets proved hard…

3rds vs Edmonton - Last Night a DJ Saved the Team from Another Defeat

Apologies (especially to DJ) for the lateness of this report. Very busy, but if it makes you feel better, I am not marking 29 maths tests to eventually finish it.

Given the fact the last 2 batting performances were brought to you by the numbers 22 and 55, one might forgive your incumbant reporter for not wishing to relive those nightmares again. And so it was to Edmonton and the last game of the season, with an improvement required.

On a pitch the size…

16th Sept 2012 - Wildcards Vs Octopus

With Captain Bazley away the Wildcards were under the vice skipper's guard (Bobby Y) for the favourite fixture of the summer calender against local rivals Octopus.  The Wildcards have won this fixture for the past two seasons - both games were won by single digit run scores.

Great news started the day -Octopus turned up with a self-branded ball and both teams started merrily ambling up to the Field of Dreams for a 12.30 start.  The stumps were out, flags were out, the club was…

Highgate 4's take on game v us

In the run up to Saturday's game, news filtered through that bottom club Brondesbury had conceded their fifth game of the season and had been removed from the league. In addition, the results of all of Brondesbury's games were expunged and points gained by their opposition removed. The revised league table did not make good viewing, with Highgate firmly bottom, 9 points adrift of closest rivals Kenton and 12 behind 3rd bottom team Lohana. However, with Kenton our opposition on the last…

4th XI v. Wembley Vs (H) Sat 8th Sept

Beware of triumphalism.  The opposition are not the enemy but fellow participants.  I’m stating the obvious here but you don’t have a game unless there are two sides.  The margins between success and failure are often extremely small; and in this case rather than hooting and hollering and jumping up and down having taken the 8th and final Wembley wicket, we should have been celebrating the honour of a 16 year-old colt who gave his captain out LBW on the last ball of the…

4th XI v. Turnham Green & Polytechnic (A) Sat 1st September 2012

Only a brief report required this week since the 4th XI’s defeat at the hands of Turnham Green on Saturday followed a familiar pattern.  A decent performance in the field, marred only by a crucial dropped catch, was followed by a naïve attempt at a run chase.


Asked to field Crouch End started well enough.  Dhamendra put in another excellent shift: Anisul was fierce but inclined to bowl short but  both picked up a wicket.  Rony replaced Anisul: and the best period…
