Chingford 185-8 (Mumby 4-22, Short 3-21)
Jesters 150 all out (Howie 64)
Lost by 35 runs

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...
