|June 25, 2002||vs Stoke Newington||Lost by five wickets|
A team captained by a schools cricket coach was always going to be a tough challenge, but Philip "The Lemming" Barrass made it even harder by running himself out on 5.
Jeremy Clarke, returning for his first innings of the season, was caught behind off a swift delivery that moved away on the first ball of the second over for 3, putting the responsibility for the big innings on veteran strokesmith Barrass.
But three balls later and the red mist descended. Barrass called for a dodgy run off a Paul Marinko cut to point, and was run out after point returned the ball to the keeper at high speed.
It was downhill from there on, only Jim Thornhill returning from the crease with any dignity after a hard-won 25.
There was little chance of defending a 78 total, and it proved. Marinko took a catch off Gary Boyd's looping bowling and Barrass also dislodged the bails.
But 10 and a bit overs later it was all over, with another early departure to the pub the only consolation.
Fallopians 78 all out,
Stoke Newington 79-2
