BECC 2nd edged out

By Danny Caro, August 17, 2010

BECC 2nd XI had an interesting fixture against a team captained by none other than BECC's very own Steven Altmann-Richer.

Although he soon departed, for a low score, Crossed-Keys CC amassed 167-7 in their 30 overs.

Particular mention must go to Jack Mendel and Ben Tilley, both of whom bowled brilliantly, with each being rewarded with a brace of wickets. Goldman, Jeffries and Horowitz each chipped in with a wicket, with all the bowlers being well-supported in the field with some good catches, particularly by Jacobs and Goldman.

MAL clinch promotion

By Danny Caro, August 16, 2010

MAL clinched promotion to Division Two of the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League with a clinical display against Belmont & Edgware 1sts.

With the pitch at Camdenians looking green and damp, it was somewhat surprising that BECC skipper Ashley Connick elected to bat on winning the toss. He and fellow opener Alex Goodman played steadily enough before Mark Landau trapped Connick LBW in front with an inswinger.

Josh Burke picked up the second wicket - having bowled some hostile stuff at both batsmen he produced a snorter that clipped the top of Averbuch's off stump.

July 29, 2010

CRICKET A superb knock of 75 from guest player Benny Wolpe helped Chigwell & Hainault Synagogue claim a 69-run victory over Belmont & Edgware 2nd.

A partnership of 45 in eight overs between stand-in Chigwell captain Matt Murray (31) and Nigel Katseph set up a solid base. Wolpe and Nigel Katseph (36 not out) turned the screw with a partnership of 147 as Chigwell closed on 197.


Belmont & Edgware edged out by Chelsea

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.
