1995

In 1995 Radlett won their third Herts League title, the first season that Stuart Browne played. Though the Browne family lived at Folly Close in Radlett, they had belonged to Polytechnic CC in London. Blundell finished top the club’s league wickets with 36, having taken over from Oz Edwards as captain halfway through after a mediocre start to the season. Six of the last eight games were won as Radlett snatched the title from Hoddesdon.

Hampton, Chippeck, Robinson, Jahangir, Moffat and Blundell formed a very strong batting line-up. Jahangir, a seam all-rounder, was an England Schools international while at Aldenham before joining Southgate and soon switching to Radlett for some golden years.

Radlett reached the quarter-finals of the Evening Standard Trophy in 1995, before losing to Wanstead with a much under-strength side. In an earlier round Chippeck swept his way to an unusual century without hitting a boundary on a slow, turning Uxbridge pitch, but the Wanstead defeat did hurt. Chippeck said: “It took me a while to get over that actually. The fact we had beaten some damned good teams in some tough matches – Dartford springs to mind that year – to get to a winnable quarter-final against a team we knew we could deal with from previous encounters.”
