2013 Highlights
 
The First XI are promoted to the Middlesex Premier League as champions after they beat Brentham to secure the Second Division league title.


North Middlesex win Middlesex Development League Final


Osterley won toss and opted to bat on an Uxbridge  ‘road’.  Hostile bowling from Under 17 Ben Owen (4 for 27) and controlled swing and seam from Under 16 Fergus Mason (2 for 23  ) cleaned up the top order reducing Osterley to 41 for 6 off 13 overs.  They dug in with a couple of decent partnerships but could not break the stranglehold imposed by the Midd’s tight bowling and fielding.  Skipper and Under 18  Connor Nurse’s spell of 1 for 9 off 7 was exceptional.  Osterley held out to use up their 40 overs finishing on 142 for 9.  This was below par but gave the much vaunted Osterley attack a target to bowl at.


The Midd lost Matt Cracknell in the 3rd over as Osterley piled on the pressure.  A steady partnership of 43 between Nurse (20) and Evan Flowers steadied the ship until the Skipper was given out caught behind.  In came Zulfy Azom (Under 18) who handled a tense period exceptionally well.  He and Flowers re-established the Midd’s control and eventually put the Osterely bowling to the sword.  Flowers showed his class with some blistering drives, cuts and pulls finishing with a superb 87 not out (1 six and 15 fours).  Azom more than played his part with an intelligent 20 not out.


This victory was the culmination of a happy and successful campaign for the Midd whose team included 5 players who started at the Club when they were Under 10 or younger and at least 3 more when they were under 12.  This is clear evidence that the Club’s Academy structure aimed at developing first team cricketers is working.  It also emphasises the close integration between  Colts and Senior players.





4th XI Promoted Again!

Elsewhere the 4th XI beat Shepherds Bush to come runner up in the 3rd XI Division 3 League meaning they had secured a historic sixth promotion in the last six years.


Our 1st XI will play in Div 1 of the MCCL 1st XI league after being promoted last season. Our 2nd XI will play in Div1 of the 2nd XI league.The 3rd XI will again play in Div 1 of of their league. The 4th XI play in Div 2 of the MCCL 3rd XI league after a 6th consecutive season of promotions (confusing, but true!). The 5th XI will play in Div 5 of the 1987 League.
