Shortened season ends with Totteridge win

Totteridge Millhillians 174-7 (Mumby 3-33) Jesters CC 178-6 (Sachin Rawson 59*) Jesters won by 4 wkts With the Jesters 70-4 chasing 175 to win, this new fixture against Totteridge Millhillians was in the balance, but a partnership of 62 between Tom Lord (25) and Sachin Rawson (59*) steadied the ship and in the end this was a comfortable win with eight overs to spare of the allotted 35. Earlier, Nick Mumby had claimed the prized wicket of Adnan Mohammed, turning out for his league side rather than the Jesters, during a spell of 3-33. Totteridge were on the back foot from the start as DJ Chak opened up with two wicket maidens! Hopefully DJ will provide a few more words here shortly... Jesters

All-round Adnan turns the game at Eastcote

Jesters CC 245-9 (Mohammed 41, A Smith 40*, Harrison 39) Eastcote 222 all out (Mohammed 5-20) Jesters won by 23 runs Adnan Mohammed top scored and took five late wickets to turn a precarious position into a winning one at Eastcote. Our 245-9 from 40 overs was built around Adnan's 41, Alex Smith's 40*, Rob Harrison's 39 and Sarbajeet Nag's 31. Eastcote got off to a flier (110-0 in the 17th over) but Adnan's wickets as well as Kadeem's 3-35 saved the day. Match manager Alex Smith's report will appear here asap. Jesters XI: A Smith (c), Nag (wk), Harrison, Zaib, Richards, Chak, Mohammed, Kadeem, Murphy, T Hayes, D Hayes

Skittled at Eversholt after Dancey four-for

Eversholt 141 all out (Dancey 4-29) Jesters CC 76 all out Lost by 65 runs We suffered a chastening defeat on a tricky deck despite a fine spell of opening bowling from Rob Dancey, who removed the home side's top four for fine figures of 7-1-29-4. Tom Hayes and DJ Chak took two each to dismiss Eversholt cheaply in the 32nd over. As it turned out, they had plenty! A more detailed account of the debacle may or may not appear here! Jesters XI: Murphy (c), Nag (wk), Palmer, Harrison, A Smith, Dancey, Simon Rawson, Sachin Rawson, Chak, T Hayes, D Hayes
