Totteridge SC Wooburn Club, took on the and the early only one or two players over the age of 25, and results really picked up at the end of the season, so they have proved that if you are good enough you are old enough.
“They were playing very well, so we hope to carry that on, and there’s stages saw Totteridge take control to lead 3-1, but Wooburn bounced back to win the final two pairs matches and level the match at 3-3.

Jason Harrison is the new Bucks CCC director of cricket; (above right); Tom Hampton has been snapped up by Gloucestershire probably a few more ready to break through too. Jonathan Burden is another fast bowler who is only 18 or 19 and bowled very well last season.
“Tom is still very young too in cricketing terms. Last season was only his first with the county, but he bowled very well.
“I’m not sure yet what his Gloucestershire commitments will mean for us next year, but hopefully he will be available to play a few games.
“Alex played for us for a few seasons as a teenager and always looked the part, but it’s always difficult to tell with cricketers.
“He went for a few trials but nothing came of them – then Notts came in for him and he has never looked back.
“Hopefully he can cement his England place in time for next year’s World Cup. He has proved he can do it in Twenty20, but now needs to show he can do it consistently in the 50-over game.”
Meanwhile, there are a couple of fixtures next year the county are already looking forward to. A oneday game will be played at the newly refurbished Chesham CC ground, and a knock out cup tie against Oxfordshire will see a first return in two decades to the John Paul Getty ground at Wormsley CC.
