An historic victory against an old foe who has not capitulated since 2001. Don’t be fooled to think this was an under-strength Hertford side, weakened in some way by the pandemic.
They were utterly destroyed by a rampant Douglas, fresh from his duvet tent, and a near flawless fielding performance featuring SIX catches AND a run-out. The Weekenders knocked off the runs to seal a memorable victory in the midst of a frankly weird season.
GEORGE EZRA, ERIC HEFFER, RON WEASLEY, CAPTAIN WE JOHNS, CAN YOU HEAR ME CAPTAIN W E JOHNS? YOUR BOYS TOOK ONE HELL OF A BEATING! ONE HELL OF A BEATING!
