While a couple of honourable mentions have to go to Ian Woods and Nick English for their fine half-centuries, in-form Firsts batsman Adam Sergeant produced the stand-out knock of the weekend with an excellent century against Langleybury. He celebrated enthusiastically after reaching the landmark… and rightly so, as his excellent 110 steered the team to an imposing 295-8. He also becomes the first double winner of the Performance of the Week accolade after hitting four sixes in an over in a half-century in the first weekend of the season.
Every week, the chairman will select the player who has produced the most extraordinary cricketing performance of the weekend programme. It won’t necessarily be the highest scorer nor the bowler who has the best figures but someone who has produced that little bit of magic to win a game or turn a match around. We hope his or her team-mates join the celebration by paying for their drinks at the bar.
