The Tigers wound up a highly successful second season with another distinguished win over VCC at the excellently appointed Coleshill ground in rural Buckinghamshire. In trouble at 39-4 in the 13th over, they recovered magnificently to post 213-6, thanks to a record fifth-wicket partnership of 119 between Richard Burgess (43) and Chris Boden (72).

Anarchy at the BBC

Sunday 15 September 2013  Winchmore Hill CC

JUDD STREET TIGERS 140-4 beat THE WHALERS CC 139-4 by 6 wickets

The Tigers signed off at Winchmore Hill with another fine win over a strong but depleted Whalers outfit to continue their excellent run of results. But this was no summer’s last sighing, more like a nuclear winter in dark, dank and dunk conditions. Continue reading “Anarchy at the BBC”

Wham, bam, thank you Rowam!

Editorial anarchy! An alternative view of the Taverners game

 – by veteran captain, beat poet and new-age horticulturalist Chris Wright

Wrighty Hambledon portrait small

And so as the dog-eared scorebook of time turns another rain splattered page towards the end of yet another season of social cricket we must reflect on a Judd Street Tigers game played without the omnipresent scorer, kit man, conscience, treasurer and match day reporter Group Captain Biggers, aka Steve Bignell.

Rampant Rowan rocks as Tigers thrash the Taverners

Winchmore Hill CC  Sunday 8 September 2013

Guest match report by Mike “The Truth” Herlihy

Judd Street Tigers beat Railway Taverners by 9 wickets

The Truth

Tigers had to manage for the first time in their short existence without Steve ‘Mr Cricket’ Bignell, the Club’s Treasurer/Scorer/ Kit Manager/Report Writer/Kit Packer/ Mentor for the first time in this successful 2013 season. The various tasks were divvied up and yours truly was allocated the task of reporter on the understanding laid down by the Club’s hierarchy that I do not criticize any Club members; apparently JST have a fair sprinkling of sensitive players.

Flat-track bullies have a field day

Winchmore Hill CC  Sunday 1 September 2013

JUDD STREET TIGERS 148-2 beat ACME 146 by 8 wickets

The cornered Tigers came out roaring again and got back on track with a convincing eight-wicket victory over a weakened Acme outfit on the big pitch at Winchmore Hill. The bowlers and fielders defended the huge outfield well to limit their visitors to a below par total on a flat wicket, after which another effortless unbeaten half-century from Mike Herlihy helped the hosts to their target with ten overs to spare. Continue reading “Flat-track bullies have a field day”

It was all going so well, and then…

Greenwich Park  Sunday 18 August 2013

CINCINNATI CC 179-7 beat JUDD STREET TIGERS 97 all out by 82 runs

The Tigers’ long run of success ended as they came unstuck against Cincinnati CC in the pleasant surroundings of Greenwich Park.  Chasing 180, they crumbled to 97 all out in just over 26 overs on a rapidly deteriorating wicket, unable to cope with the vagaries of the pitch and some excellent bowling and fielding by the home team. Continue reading “It was all going so well, and then…”

Boys Keep Swinging

Walker Ground, Southgate   Sunday 11 August 2013


Another sunny Sunday; another flat wicket and another runfest – 490 scored in 80 overs of a highly enjoyable contest, as Chris Wright posted a club record score (118 not out) for a Tiger batsman in a record total of 268. Adelaide threatened briefly but were always too far behind the required run rate. Continue reading “Boys Keep Swinging”

Close to the Edge

Winchmore Hill CC  Sunday 4 August 2013

JUDD STREET TIGERS 202-8 beat OLD GRUMBLERS 183 by 19 runs

In another tense match, the Tigers just shaded their dogged opponents in a contest that ebbed and flowed all afternoon. More significantly, skipper Chris Dane replaced a millstone with a milestone as he finally recorded his maiden century. It was fortunate that he did, as no other batsman really got going against some tight bowling and excellent fielding. Continue reading “Close to the Edge”
