C.E.C.C.| Shepherds Cot | Crouch End | North London | N8 8JJ
The 4th XI lost another opportunity to score some runs on Saturday, at the Church Road home ground against Hornsey 4ths, and the game by 6 wickets.
A soft pitch, a grassy outfield, two self-inflicted run outs (by Rob Y), some poor shots and some good leg-break bowling reduced Crouch End to 62 all out in 46 overs. There were no boundaries and a top score of 16 (by Rob Y).
Hornsey were made to work for their win. Des, Kiran and debutant Doug all bowled well; but Hornsey had a wise old head at No 1 who rode his luck and steered them to 63 for 4 in the 26th over.
The shortest report in recent history. Many thanks to those who responded to Simon’s call. We put out a perfectly respectable 4th XI who should have done a whole lot better. Conditions have been difficult recently; and Simon is sure he has upset the gods somehow; but from somewhere we must find the application to put together some intelligent innings.
