An­niver­sary match goes with form

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CRICKET KEITH Aizen and Adam Ja­cobs were the star per­form­ers as a Bel­mont & Edg­ware team of cur­rent play­ers claimed a six-wicket suc­cess in a com­mem­o­ra­tive match to mark the club’s 40th an­niver­sary.

Bel­mont & Edg­ware “past” were soon in trou­ble as Aizen caused prob­lems with his left-arm spin at Old Ly­oni­ans. He ac­counted for Clif­ford Horowitz who fell to an out­stand­ing div­ing catch by Steven Alt­mann-Richer.

Aizen also dis­missed Jonathan Feigen­baum and Jeremy Free­man be­fore Phil El­lis added some quick­fire runs, in­clud­ing a gi­ant six. His knock ended when he blasted one straight to Noam At­tar off Adam Ja­cobs.

David Kay marked his first ap­pear­ance for the club in three years with a three-wicket haul, while Saleh re­turned to take the fi­nal wicket.

A tar­get of 115 was al­ways within reach for BECC Present, al­though they suf­fered an early scare when Stu­art Davis re­moved Michael Blase­balk. Har- vey Sa­muels and Alt­mann-Richer added some valu­able runs be­fore a 35-run part­ner­ship be­tween Ja­son Mann and Ja­cobs was halted by Feigen­baum.

It was left to Aizen and Ja­cobs to score the nec­es­sary 30 runs to steer the Present XI home. Aizen was at his bru­tal best – hit­ting a six in a quick­fire 25, while Ja­cobs fin­ished un­beaten on 29.

BECC’s Ryan Monk said: “This was a won­der­ful way to com­mem­o­rate the 40th an­niver­sary of the club, with many en­joy­ing the nos­tal­gia of the oc­ca­sion.

“Amidst de­mands by nu­mer­ous Se­lect XI play­ers for a more reg­u­lar fix­ture, per­haps some may wish to re­dis­cover for­mer glo­ries and oc­ca­sion­ally turn out for the cur­rent side.”

MAL made it four out of four in the Mid­dle­sex Sun­day League with an 88-run vic­tory over West Har­row in Di­vi­sion Two.

Ami Wyn­bourne and War­ren Aver­buch top-scored with re­spec­tive knocks of 44 as MAL posted 188. They looked in trou­ble at 147-7 un­til Guv Lebens joined Binny Fein­messer added a fur­ther 30 runs.

Har­row could not cope with the pace of Yoav Lebens as their re­ply fal­tered.
