Butler & Chris Smith club Hurlingham

Jesters CC 301/9 dec (Butler 79) Hurlingham 197 all out (C Smith 5/60) Jesters won by 104 runs A batting line-up laden with Jesters luminaries was too strong for Hurlingham, who were thrashed by 104 runs. Chris Smith's fine all-round performance earned him the man of the match award. Skipper Jonny Bridcut elaborates below... Having lost the toss on a baking hot August bank holiday Saturday, the Jesters were relieved to be invited to bat first on what looked a typically benign batting paradise in this leafy south-west London oasis.

A day to forget at Middleton Stoney

Jesters CC 77 all out Middleton Stoney 81-2 Lost by 8 wickets A player availability crisis saw us field three members of the opposition and a passer-by, who padded up and strolled out to the middle when our ninth wicket fell!

With a few injuries and drop-outs, just seven Jesters

DJ 143* but clobbered by Chobham

Jesters 257-4 (Chak 143*, Mohammed 46*) Chobham 258-6 Lost by 4 wickets Our 257-4 off 40 overs looked like a fine total, but with nine men defending a large, fast outfield, it proved well below par. Andrew Short tells the story of the day an another commanding DJ Chak century... The Jesters have had some notable victories at Chobham over the years. In 2005 when Ollie Doward bagged 7-22; in 2006 when we took the last eight Chobham wickets for no runs; and perhaps best of all in 2011 when a nine-man Jesters side triumphed after a thrilling run chase built around a 150-run partnership between John Murphy and Adnan Mohammed. So skipper Andrew Short wasn't entirely downhearted when he realised he
