Faire is foul, and foul is Faire

Jesters 192-7 (Hudson 73, Mohammed 40) Faire is the XI 193-4 (Chak 3-33) Lost by 6 wickets Our unbeaten start to the season is no longer as Faire comfortably chased 192 to win in a 40 over contest at Chiswick House. Robbie Hudson struck a pleasing 73 and DJ Chak gave us hope with some late wickets but it was too little too late...

The Jesters arrived in Chingford on a beautiful, sunny day still looking for their first win in this fixture (previous years at Chingford had produced a high scoring draw and a narrow Jesters loss in a low scoring game). For the third consecutive year, we lost the toss and were in the field. The lack of cricket ove

Dickie Nelson & David Broster

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of two Jesters stalwarts - Richard Nelson, at 91, and David Broster. Richard joined the club in 1957 and played until the early 1980s. He was a very hard hitting left handed batsman. He was briefly a committee member (1966-69). Club president John Burmester says: “Dickie Nelson was above all a true Jester in every sense - he loved his cricket but never let ambition get ahead of enjoyment.” Fellow Jester Richard Johnson adds: "Dick was a ruddy-faced, chunky, pugilistic left-hand bat and wicket-keeper who seemed to wear a permanent smile and played with an enormous sense of enjoyment. I always think of him - and Terry Trevessey* - as true c
