On a disappointing weekend for the club, there were some great performances to lift the mood this weekend. The under-17s all deserve a pat on the back for winning the county title, while one of their stars, Tom Hills, returned to form with a half-century for the Thirds. Also deserving of a special mention is Pru Korivi, who finally got his rewards for some consistent seam bowling as he claimed six wickets in the Fourths’ routing of Rickmansworth. But the winner, for the second time this season, is Adrian Holmes for his masterful 97 in the Seconds’ game against Totteridge Millhillians. He has been in superb form all season and this knock held the innings together until he was last man out looking for the boundary to secure the elusive three figures. Well batted!
Every week, the chairman will select the player who has produced the most exceptional 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.
