By Danny Caro, July 26, 2010

Belmont & Edgware fell narrowly short of beating Kensington & Chelsea in the Middlesex League on Sunday.

After being asked to field, BECC restricted the Kensington batsmen early on, before the run rate climbed after the halfway point. Gideon Restan bowled brilliantly and took four wickets for the second week in a row, before breaking his finger taking his second catch of the day.

Oli Simons, on his return to BECC action for the first time since 2008, and Ashley Connick each picked up three wickets, whilst Ami Wynbourne and Neil Myeroff bowled well for no reward.

By Danny Caro, July 26, 2010

South Manchester Maccabi retained the NJCL crown for the third consecutive season after easing to a nine-wicket victory in the title-decider against Manchester Maccabi.

Vale 2nd dent MAL’s promotion hopes

By Danny Caro, July 26, 2010

London Maccabi Vale 2nd dented MAL’s promotion hopes with a seven-wicket victory in Middlesex Sunday League Division Three.

The result saw MAL suffer only their second league defeat of the season but in truth Vale were the better side throughout, and cruised to victory with more than 10 overs remaining.

Vale skipper Jon Lederman won the toss and asked MAL to bat. The pitch proved to be very two-paced with the ball not coming on to the bat and the batsmen struggling to time the ball.

LMV 2A edged out by West Harrow

By Danny Caro, July 20, 2010

London Maccabi Vale 3rd XI made its first appearance of the season but a team combining youth and experience were edged out by one wicket by West Harrow.

No matter what level you play your cricket, as long as the opposition are well-matched you can have a great contest; which is what we had on Sunday. A match that went the full 80 overs and finished just after half past eight was played in an excellent spirit on both sides and hopefully gave LMV's youngsters valuable experience of how to deal with pressure.

By Danny Caro, July 20, 2010

A captain’s innings from Joel Sager helped BESCC secure their second victory after beating Barnet Synagogue in the latest Inter-Synagogue friendly.

BESCC overcame the early losses of Freedman and Turek. Wobbling at 18-3, Sager carried his bat, despite not having played since last August, to make 47 not out as BESCC eased home with four overs to spare.
