Weekenders make it three in a row...


...not cancellations due to lack of interest, nor woeful chokes, evaded match fees, lifts nor relationships ended by smelly kitbags left in the kitchen but glorious WINS. Three of them. In succession.


WCC 275-2 (40 overs)

McDonald 1, Hogben 17, Fletcher 136 not out, Cooper 106 not out


DNB: Bailey, Mason, Douglas, Dibley, Black, Smee, Lyons, Douglas


Fletcher & Cooper's 226 run partnership came off 175 balls



CROUCH END CC 195 all out (38 overs)

Phil 58, Julian 43,


Douglas 7-1-36-1, Dibley 7-2-13-0, Black 3-0-33-0, Mason 8-0-39-3, McDonald 3-0-23-0, Fletcher 6-1-21-2, Cooper 4-0-14-1. 


Extras 33 (13 wides, 3 no balls, 8 byes, 9 leg byes)


Catches: McDonald 1, Cooper 1.


Runouts: 3 

Dibley from the deep, combined with Fletcher at the bowler's end and Lyons 'keeping - ignoring three clear opportunities for panic

And two direct hits by McDonald off the final two deliveries of the match. He becomes, almost certainly, the first WCC captain to go into his next game on a hat-trick of run-outs.


After ten overs Crouch End were 31-1. After twenty overs they were 115-1 and looking good. But George Mason's three quick wickets after the drinks break scuppered the hosts.  


Print up this match report, cover it in marshmallows and roll naked on it until you're exhausted, it may be the last of its kind for a while.
