JUDD STREET TIGERS 237-5 beat CAMRA (SW London) 231-6 by 5 wickets

About the same time England finally wrapped up the second Ashes Test against Australia at Lord’s, Matt Webster launched a huge six over long-on with the final ball of the penultimate over to put the seal on an unlikely win for the rampant Tigers. Continue reading “Lions of England”



14 July 2013 – Old Tenisonians CC, New Malden


scoreboardOn a day of unbearable tension, as England edged out Australia in the first Ashes Test in Nottingham, Dave Scally, Tigers’ twelfth batsman, needing two runs for his team to win, struck the last ball of the game into the covers and scampered a single which tied the match after the sides had shared 70 overs and 462 runs.

The Holy Grail

Sunday 7 July 2013    Winchmore Hill CC

JUDD STREET TIGERS 264-7 beat N2 CASUALS 169 all out by 95 runs

On the day that Andy Murray ended the 77-year wait for a Men’s Wimbledon Champion, another sporting icon, Chris Dane, skipper of the Judd Street Tigers, also appeared on the verge of ending his 50-year odyssey to score a batting century. Continue reading “The Holy Grail”

And The Waters Prevailed…

Sunday 23 June 2013 – Minchenden School Sports Ground, Southgate

JUDD STREET TIGERS 154-6 drew with FIVES CC 104-5 – Match Abandoned

Sadly, this contest, which was bubbling up to an exciting finale, was ruined by the weather. For once, the forecasters got it right, as the combatants were forced off the pitch in the early evening by persistent heavy drizzle which made playing conditions impossible, particularly for the fielding side. Continue reading “And The Waters Prevailed…”

The Natural World


JUDD STREET TIGERS 227-7 beat OCTOPUS CC 161 all out by 66 runs

StevieB ThumbnailEthologists may have long pondered the outcome of a struggle between an octopus and a tiger (at least since yesterday!), two species unlikely ever to encounter one another in the natural world. At a damp Winchmore Hill, the argument was briefly resolved, as the Panthera Tigris overcame the Octopod in an intriguing and entertaining battle on the cricket field.

Tigers retain Nelson Cup


Judd Street Tigers 84-4 beat London Saints 82-9 by 6 wickets

London Saints 105-1 beat Sunderland 104-6 by 9 wickets

Judd Street Tigers 156-3 beat Sunderland 80-3 by 76 runs


Some may argue that this competition is something of an anachronism; that it is a cup sponsored by a public house in Brentford, west London, that no longer has any connections with the club; that it is competed against veteran teams whom West Eleven played as far back as the late nineteen-eighties, and that the Tigers are odds-on favourites to win every year.

Eastons Take Sheen Off Tigers’ Record

Little Easton, Essex – Sunday 2 June 2013

JUDD STREET TIGERS 125 all out lost to EASTONS CC 127-6

The previously rampant Tigers slipped to their first defeat of the season against Eastons CC in rural Essex after a calamitous batting collapse that saw them fall from a comfortable 98-2 to 125 all out on a good batting track. They subsequently fought back well in the field but simply didn’t have enough runs to defend. Continue reading “Eastons Take Sheen Off Tigers’ Record”

Graces Under Pressure

Winchmore Hill CC    Sunday 26 May 2013

JUDD STREET TIGERS 202-9 beat GRACES CC 190-8 by 12 runs

The roaring Tigers continued on their winning start to the season with a narrow victory over the celebrated Graces Cricket Club. A good all-round team performance, allied to some thoughtful captaincy and tight fielding, restricted the visitors to less than the five an over they needed in the run chase. Continue reading “Graces Under Pressure”
