vMinster 254 for 8, Old Wilsonians 235
Old Wilsonians needed 20 off the last over to ease their relegation worries, an outcome that was possible rather than probable, particularly as they were nine wickets down, but with Matt Golding (104) facing it was still conceivable and he hit the first ball hard and high, but not quite high enough, and was caught on the mid-wicket boundary to the palpable relief of the visiting side
Earlier Fabian Cowdrey (117 n.o) had continued his prolific summer and with Kai Appleby (35), James White (30) and the ever reliable Extras (24) also weighing in they just made it past the 250 mark
Wilsonians got off to the worst possible start, loisng a wicket to the fourth ball of their innings, but they gradually clawed their way back into the game and at the second drinks interval, after 34 overs, their score stood at 147 for 5, with both batsmen well set
However, the dismissal of Michael Mitchell (40) shortly afterwards turned the game back Minster's way and they triumphed by 19 runs, despite Golding's heroics and to their obvious relief


Catford and Cyphers 2nd Xl 199 Old Wilsonians 123
Catford and Cyphers eaaed their own relegation fears, and increased those of Old Wilsonians, with this 76 run victory
The hosts were grateful to Wilfred Brooke (47), Waheeb Husani (40) and Usama Asif (44) for all but 68 of their runs, with Stan Sherlock, 3 for 26, and Siva Ranjan and Isaac Rodda, two wickets a-piece, doing their best to stall their progress
But it was the home side's bowlers, Omari Jones-Lowers, 4 for 15 and Hamza Tahir, 3 for 20 in particular who were the match winners with only Wayne Crossland (25) and Sanath Dandeniya (23) making any significant contributions for the visitors
Old Wilsonians' 3rd Xl 107, Oakfield Warriors 1st Xl 111 for 2
Oakfield Warriors took just 16.5 overs to score the runs required to beat Old Wilsonians by eight wickets, Subaanand Munsasamy (54 n.o) and Sudhish Kumar Karayill Beettil (25) leading the way in this, successful, assassination attempt
And, as you can imagine, their bowlers also enjoyed themselves Gyan Traosky Mansinghe, 3 for 18, Gateenda Pandian Murugesan, 2 for 16 and Hanshakumar Harsharan, 2 for 23 being the stars, despite the efforts of Jeff Mascarenhas (31), Andy Hazzard (21) and Matthew Carruthers (21 n.o)


Old Wilsonians' 4th Xl 103, Old Colfeians 107 for 1
Only Nick Herbert (26), Dave Jukes (11) and Stephen Millward (16 n.o) made it to the dizzy heights of double figures as Old Wilsonians were bowled out for 103 by Old Colfeians, Ben Pritchard 3 for 10 and Andrew Hughes, 3 for 20 being the main benefactors
The visitors then lost an early wicket but, after that, it was plain sailing as Paul Davison (43 n.o) and Himanshu Pathania (50 n.o) saw them safely home
