In 1979 it snowed during the summer, and Radlett failed to win a single league game, despite two centuries from Randall. They enjoyed little luck, but dominated enough draws to stay two places off the bottom.
Letchworth won a run-chase by one wicket off the last ball, and Watford Town, the eventual runners-up, were completely outplayed in a draw at Cobden Hill, with Radlett declaring at 245 for two. Tony Murley had hit 103 and put on 166 for the first wicket with Randall (86). Murley proved to be better than his dynamic brother David and narrowly missed a Blue at Cambridge, as 12th man at Lord’s, though he achieved a golf Blue.
The third team were well served by Borehamwood policeman Bruce Hensleigh, who grafted to 1,015 runs at 50.75, and Ivor Golby, now in his mid-60s, took 48 wickets.
The Club again won the Herts Advertiser 20-overs knock-out competition.
Nick Draper played five games for Hertfordshire.
In June, Radlett played Yorkshire in a Chris Old benefit match.
