Here is a round-up of some recent results at the club.

Turning to the Middlesex League, a few matches have taken place since my last report.
Firstly, Hendon 1 have lost twice away from home, to Muswell Hill 1 and Hackney. Thank you to Alex Funk for captaining the first of these in my absence. The second took place on 31st October in rather strange circumstances, with Hackney’s normal basement room in Ryan’s Bar in use for a Halloween party, so the match took place in the front entrance of the main bar, with revellers in ghoulish costumes tramping through all night!
Here’s the scorecard from that match (the other can be found in the team’s complete results):
