Exciting victory at Amersham

Jesters 278-8 (Chak 78, Clapp 51) Amersham 233 all out (Mohammed 3-34) Jesters won by 45 runs Amersham have proved consistently formidable opponents over the years so this was a rare and impressive win led by skipper Chris Smith whose report will follow soon. In a 40 over contest, DJ Chak top scored with 78 after openers Adnan Mohammed and Shaun O'Brien with 42 apiece had laid the foundation.

Having won the toss and opted to insert our unknown opponents, the Jesters’ opening strike bowler George Lasseter immediately struck gold, knocking over the unwitting Flashmen o

Howie & Mumby exploits in vain

Chingford 185-8 (Mumby 4-22, Short 3-21) Jesters 150 all out (Howie 64) Lost by 35 runs The nine men of The Jesters fell 35 runs short at Chingford. After an opening partnership of 100 off the first 15 overs, we did remarkably well to restrict the home side to 185, thanks to Nick Mumby's 4-22 and Andrew Short's 3-21. Hindered by two calamitous run outs, our initially promising chase fell away despite the best efforts of Oscar Howie (64), top scoring for the second year in a row on this ground, and Jake Smyth (31). Match manager Mumby will provide a fuller account soon...
