Old Haberdashers' Cricket Club
After the match on 15th August 2015, the OHCC 1st XI are lying second in Division 6B of the Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League having won 7 of their 15 league matches with 6 losses and 1 draw. If they win their last three matches they will be promoted, bouncing straight back after relegation in 2014.
On Saturday 15th August the O.H.C.C. put out a 1st XI in the Herts. League (and won) and a 2nd XI in a friendly against Aldenham. This marked the re-emergence of the OHCC 2nd XI and anticipates the teams re-entry in to the Herts. League next season. It is fantastic to report that the 22 players were all Haberdashers, either Old Boys, School teacher or current pupils or one Old Girl!
Piya Haria (OHGS) made her debut for the OHCC and took a hat trick! Even without WRT to check we can confidently say that this has never been done by an OHCC cricketer on debut before (either male or female!).
Old Haberdashers' RFC
The 1st XV ended the season with a narrow win over fellow high flyers Harpenden, the final score was 35-28. A classic game of two halves with OH dominant in the first half with the wind and slope and Harpenden coming back strongly in the second half with the same advantage. The win moved us into 4th place with Chiswick and Hammersmith & Fulham retaining their 2nd and 3rd places as they also both won their last match.
The 2nd XV finished 3rd in the Merit Table behind Letchworth and Tring. In the Knock Out competition they lost narrowly in the first round (46-40) to Hertford in an open, high scoring match. They played Hertford 3's again in the final of the Plate Competition on 25th April, they pleyed really well but lost narrowly 25-26. Winning some silverware would have been a great end to a good season for the 2's who were a credit to the club.
