Performance of the week: Mark Folwell

A much better weekend for the club in league fixtures with wins for the Firsts, Thirds and Fourths. An excellent century opening stand between Danny Digweed (63*) and Nick English (69) for the Thirds deserves an honourable mention. But for sheer morale-boosting effort, the award this week goes to Fourths skipper Mark Folwell, who helped…

Performance of the week: Harry Jarman

This award has been somewhat in abeyance during the past few weeks as the club’s league teams have been going through a rough trot. Of course, there have been some tremendous individual efforts in that time. Guy Warman continues to smash it to all parts, including an amazing century two weekends ago; Sam Gardiner picked up…

Performance of the week: Bret Painter

So far this season, flitting between the Firsts and the Seconds, Bret Painter has been something of a talisman, only finishing on the losing side once. That’s something of an achievement in itself given the patchy start to the league campaign the club has had. On Saturday, Bret made his biggest contribution to date, steering the Seconds to…

Performance of the week: Joel Curtis

In friendly action this week, Sam Gardiner smashed a chanceless, unbeaten 148 to power the Park to a four-wicket victory over Primrose Hill on Sunday; that was a terrific effort and one of the highest individual scores seen at the club for a few years. In Saturday’s league games, however, it was only the Fifths that…

Performance of the week: Sayf Khan

The Firsts needed a boost this week after a disappointing start to the season and they turned it round in some style with a crushing victory against Old Finchleians on Saturday. Instrumental to that all-important win was Sayf Khan, whose ten-over spell of fast-medium returned the impressive figures of 4-14, which was almost as miserly as birthday boy…

Performance of the week: Archie Stephens

Under-15 Archie Stephens has had a great weekend, cementing his progress as a cricketer and his maturing approach to the game. On Saturday, he played a pivotal part in the thirds’ stirring performance at Kings Langley, bowling two superb death overs and making a responsible, stylish 24 after losing his opening partner early. Then, on…

Performance of the week: Guy Warman

The club needed a boost after the disappointment of seeing our young Firsts slide into the relegation zone. Several great performances this weekend, especially in the Fourths and Seconds, certainly gave us a lift. Sandy Reynolds took five wickets and Mark Taylor four to set the Fourths on the path to victory, with Dave Barwick…
