NEW PLAYERS of whatever standard will be made very welcome at nets

GROUNDSMAN BRIAN DOES IT AGAIN!
The marks for Pitch and Outfield quality awarded by the neutral umpires who officiated at our 1s League matches in 2014 show that the hard work and dedication of groundsman Brian "Oz" Cohen have again been recognised.
Our 1s square has been ranked 3= (out of 10) among Middlesex Premier League clubs, and our Outfield has been ranked Best in Class - just ahead of Finchley and well clear of the rest of the field!
A quick update on some of our plans for the close season :
- All 3 squares already scarified, fertilized and seeded by outside contractors, and looking good. Deep-drilling of squares scheduled for November. Verti-draining of outfield, and various other treatments, to be carried out in Q1 2015.
- Planning Permission granted (at last) for major facilities improvements – all to be completed by start of next season. These include a 3 lane non-turf net area, 2 non-turf match wickets, and a large electronic scoreboard.
- Work has started on the new nets. The old nets have been cleared ready for the installation of the new nets before the start of the season
Huge Congratulations to the Under 11 Girls team who beat Ealing in the final of the Middlesex Cup on Sunday (7 September)
That's it Folks
Saturday 6 September saw the final matches of the season for the senior teams all of whom have ended their season playing in the top flight.
After some nervous opening performances the 1st XI (who lost their final match at Ealing) found their form and were relentless in the second half of the season. Unlike neighbours Hornsey who started well but ended up being relegated the Midd finished their first season in the Premiership in a very creditable 5th place.
The 2nd XI had secured their position in the league last week but made sure of it with a 3 wicket win over Ealing. The 3rd XI left it to the last minute to avoid relegation but will stay in the top division thanks to a point at Ealing.
Which is just as well for the 4th XI who secured their 7th promotion slot in 7 seasons. Unfortunately the rules do not allow us to have 2 teams in the same division so although they get the satisfaction of a promotion slot they do not actually get promoted. They are, like all the other teams, as high as they can go.
We are now the only club in the County to have four teams in the top four leagues possible.
The 5th XI (who Mike Bohndiek describes as having "blended youth and experience superbly across the year" rounded off their season with another low scoring thriller and finished third in their league.
Its been a very good season all round and just goes to show what a force the Midd has become. You could say we put the Midd into Middlesex.
The 1st XI run in the National T20 competition came to an end on Sunday in Norwich.
In a game reduced by weather to 13 overs each the Midd managed 122 for 8 with Joel Hughes top scoring (50*). East Anglian champions Swardeston CC had no trouble knocking off the runs without the loss of a single wicket in 11.5 overs.
