1st team still top, and 4 wins out of 5. 

The 1s held their nerve to record a narrow victory over Bromley Common at home, to extend their lead at the top of the Kent Premier League to 15 points. Blackheath made 230/8 in their 50 overs, with Charlie Speller top-scoring with 50. Ivan Thomas hit the last ball of the innings for six to give Blackheath some momentum, and this was amplified by Jahid Ahmed dismissing the Bromley opener from the first ball of the innings.  Wickets were shared around in a tight bowling performance, as Bromley Common could only muster 210/7.  

The 2s also recorded a victory at Bromley Common. A total of 214/8 was thanks mainly to Basit Ahmed (62) and Mitu Ahmed (48). Two quick wickets with the new ball helped enormously, and when Aalok Jain (5/29) broke the third wicket stand of 98, the floodgates opened. Bromley Common dismissed for 179.

The 3s successfully defended 199 at the Academy, with Alex Antunes starring with 29 and 3/39. Zihad Hussain spun out the tail with 3/23 to finish the match early.

The Mighty 8s proved mighty indeed as they racked up 252/7 in 40 overs, with fifties for Vinodh, Krishna and Spidey. This proved sufficient for a solid win by 18 runs in a high-scoring encounter.

Finally, Peter Deal made 54 in a losing cause for the 4s against Bromley 3rd XI - a chase of 241 was just out of reach on this occasion. Next time for the clean sweep.

Blackheath Cricket Club

Blackheath Cricket Club is one of the leading cricket clubs in London. Formed over one hundred and fifty years ago and sporting a colourful history, Blackheath fields 6 league teams every Saturday, up to 3 teams on a Sunday and also operates an extensive youth section.

The 1st XI play in the Premier Division of the Kent Cricket League, which is one of the strongest amateur cricket leagues in the UK. The Club’s 2nd and 4th XIs also play in the Kent League structure, while the 3rd, 5th and 6th XIs play in the Kent Regional League - often against the 1st or 2nd XIs of other clubs.

Since 1886, the Club's main ground has been the Rectory Field. The Club also has an attractive, high-quality second ground at the old Royal Military Academy in Woolwich. 

The Club’s six Saturday XIs, Sunday teams, midweek programme, youth section and vibrant social scene mean there is a place for everyone from current internationals to the youngest colt.

We seek to enable all our members to play at the appropriate level of cricket for their ability, while enjoying the social and cricketing benefits of being part of a larger club.

Blackheath has one of the leading youth sections in the UK, regularly progressing to the latter stages of the ECB National U13 and U15 Cup competitions. As an ECB Focus Club with Clubmark accreditation and a wealth of experienced coaches, Blackheath provides an environment where young people can enjoy the game recreationally but also supports a steady stream of young people to access county age-group squads.

Blackheath Cricket Club is situated in the London Borough of Greenwich but serves much of central south and east London. As such, the Club prides itself on a diverse membership. We are proud that so many players - from all corners of the UK, and from all around the world - can call the Rectory Field "Home".
