BDOC’s review of the Tigers’ 2015 season

The Tigers had an ultimately disappointing year – just seven wins from 20 matches – but managed to turn things around in August and September with five wins from the final six games, mainly thanks to improved availability, several key players having missed large chunks of the summer for varying reasons.  Continue reading “BDOC’s review of the Tigers’ 2015 season”


Slow Train Coming

North London CC    Sunday 20 September 2015
JUDD STREET TIGERS 253-6 beat RAILWAY TAVERNERS 236-8 by 17 runs

In a fitting finale to the season the Tigers ground out another close and hard fought victory in the North London gloom, mainly thanks to a fifth-wicket club record partnership of 144 between Stewart Taylor (92) and Chris Boden (95). There was a brave response from the Taverners, who included loanee Chris Wright, falling just a few runs short, mainly thanks to an excellent innings from Terry, who became the day’s third batsman to be dismissed in the 90’s, running himself out one short of his hundred.

Continue reading “Southbound Train”


Paulin Ground, Winchmore Hill    Sunday 23 August 2015
JUDD STREET TIGERS 110-7 lost to THE WHALERS 140-4 by 30 runs

Ignoring, for the moment, extant theories on the probability of Sunday rainfall, this match would not have taken place had one hearkened to the bloated and collectivist BBC weather forecasters, having predicted biblical floods and a possible nuclear holocaust for the period of this game. As it happened, there was light rain for about an hour and, with the pitch covered, the ground had dried sufficiently for cricket to begin at 3 pm. Continue reading “Cloudbusting”

In a week that saw the demise of Cecil the lion and Our Cilla, the ailing Tigers went down to another crushing defeat at the playground of South London’s fun-seekers in stifling conditions. Having struggled to 173-9 on a slowish pitch, they were blasted away with more than 18 overs Continue reading “Anyone who had a heart”

Despite managing to finally get a full set of players on to the field and bowling the opposition out for the first time this season, the Tigers went down to yet another defeat in the pleasant Hertfordshire countryside.
