First Jesters 100 for Sachin Rawson!

Jesters 260-4 dec (Sachin Rawson 105*, Mohammed 72, Doward 42) Bishop's Stortford 198 all out (Mohammed 4-17, Chak 3-36) Jesters won by 62 runs It is an absolute delight to report that Sachin Rawson has his first Jesters century. And what an innings it was - full of exquisite timing, with grace and power in equal measure. It helped the Jesters rack up a weighty 260 in 42 overs before Adnan Mohammed capped off a fine all round performance with four wickets in the final hour to go with his 72 runs with the bat... With Bishop's Stortford's Cricketfield Lane ground resplendent in the late June sunshine and the locals already filling the bar and boundary edges, the Jesters won the toss and electe

Maiden ton for Chris Smith in Kew win

Our 27 run win at Kew included the a splendid maiden Jesters hundred for Chris Smith and an Andrew Short five wicket haul which turned the game in our favour. Skipper Sahil Kher's match report follows... Blue skies! A lovely London ground! Charming pub opposite! The MET office and Kew CC promised a lot as Sunday approached. It was inevitable then that the Jesters were greeted by grey skies, a soggy pitch and a grumpy umpire insisting on a team sheet as we returned to Kew Green after many a year. "Bridders must be champing at the bit to bowl on this deck" they said. Lucky then that the skipper won the toss... and decided to have a bat in a 40 over game. Andrew Short's pre-match message couldn

Hayes to the fore in Barnes defeat

Jesters 169 all out Barnes Common 170-5 (Hayes 4-31) Lost by 5 wickets Invited to bat on a ripe looking surface, we were dismissed for 169. Despite four wickets for Dan Hayes, Barnes chased down the target easily. Captain Louis Harris' report will appear here asap. Jesters XI: L Harris (c), Hancock (wk), Hudson, Howie, Mohammed, E Smith, M Harris, Hayes, Short, J Twigg, Berman

Holding out for a hero at Jesus College

Jesters 182 all out (Doward 48, Hudson 39) Jesus College, Cambridge 184-4 Lost by 6 wickets At 81-0 a big total beckoned, but five quick wickets brought the students of Jesus College back into the contest and they made relatively easy work of the chase, albeit aided by seven dropped chances and some outrageous luck at times... After a pessimistic forecast from Andrew Short, who had been scouring the radar all morning, we set off for Cambridge with little expectation of a full game of cricket. Happily, weatherman Short's prediction was straight out of the Michael Fish handbook and the match got underway on time as drizzle gave way to a dry afternoon. So confident was Andrew of a day dragging

Kher leads way in Newdigate romp

Jesters 247-9 (Kher 89, Harris 51) Newdigate 138 all out (Mohammed 3-12, Chak 3-16) Jesters won by 109 runs Despite being on the end of a hat-trick, we cruised to victory at Newdigate thanks to fine knocks from Louis Harris (51) and Sahil Kher (89) and three wickets each for DJ Chak and Adnan Mohammed. Captain Noah Hillyard elaborates... The Jesters romped home to a 109-run victory against Newdigate. Having been asked to bat, largely due to the fact that only five Jesters had arrived on time, we lost an early wicket when Robbie Hudson creamed a drive straight to extra-cover. However, Tom Lord and Louis Harris then set about building a solid platform. Louis was timing the ball beautifully and
