Imagine a gently sloping grassy field strewn with cowpats, weeds and broken branches, on the left side of what is now the Shenley Hill end of Williams Way. An old lodge house stands on today’s junction of the two roads, and half a mile away along the stately drive lies the Newberries mansion and its outhouses.
All around are fields and trees, acres of them, stretching down a long steep slope to the London Midland Railway below, which arrows its way through the Radlett valley. Dotted here and there are the big houses whose owners daily commute to London on the steam trains. In between are much smaller dwellings rented by farming folk who make up the bulk of the population – about 360 souls in all.
To collect as much information as possible on the activities of the club both on and off the field of play. In addition, we are seeking to link club history to that of the village in particular and the world of cricket in general.

Radlett: 230-7 in 50 overs
Lordswood: 176 in 47.5 overs
Radlett won by 54 runs
Radlett became the first Hertfordshire side and, after High Wycombe’s success last year, the second Home Counties Premier League side to lift the prestigious Evening Standard trophy after comprehensively beating Kent side Lordswood by 54 runs. The competition which is contested between the top 112 teams in London has a total prize fund of £12,000. After beating Middlesex League Champions Teddington and Surrey League Champions Wimbledon in earlier rounds the Cobden Hill side fully deserved there day out at the home of Surrey CC, the AMP Oval.
