Report: Spun out by a pro at Amersham

Amersham 206/7 (Butler 2-25) Jesters 152 all out (Hillyard 47) We could not quite rekindle the glories of last year's wonderful run chase at Amersham's beautiful ground in Buckinghamshire, eventually falling 54 runs short, after a noble effort from Noah Hillyard to bring some late respectability to our total. Match manager Jonny Bridcut tells the story of the afternoon... Having won the toss on a hot and humid day, captain Simon Butler took great relish in deciding to take the field, and even greater relish in explaining the complicated rules of the game to his teammates: 40 overs aside; eight over power-plays, during which you had to have two catchers and only two fielders outside the "ring

Karim Sutton and DJ Chak were in the wickets as Eastcote recovered from a slow start to post 184.

There were three wickets for DJ Chak, whose match report follows below... After a high scoring draw last year, the Jesters arrived at Forest Side expecting another run glut. The skipper duly lost the toss and we were in the field once again. Were we going to spend the afternoon chasing leather or could the reinforced Jesters bowling attack somehow prevent Chingford CC's batsman from scoring at will? We got our answer quickly enough. Led ably by the rejuvenated Jonathan Bridcut, th
