Busy typing these in but came across an interesting day on the 18th July, 1952 when Eltham fielded a first team and a second team.

Also another game in 1953 when Eltham got bowled out for 47, but then managed to bowl out Royal Ordnance Factories for 43.

Also a bowler by the name of E.Sherwood who in just the July of 1953 got 6 wickets in an innings no less than 4 times, including an 8-14!

H has dusted off a load of scorebooks for me to collect from Hicks Mansions on 22nd Jan after nets, so will be ploughing through our history to get figures up to date. Looking forward to finding Ken's ninefer!

In days gone by he was always my father! I assume my 50th birthday has changed this status!

It would be more time-consuming Andy if we got more 5 wicket hauls - it actually doesn't take too long, although 1995 was a bit of a beast (check your brother Mick's stats for that year ;c) )

Great stuff, well done Colin!

Nice work Mr Wouldham... this must be somewhat time consuming!

Click here to go to the page so far for best bowling between 1995 and 2011 (not including 1999!) - if H can dig out any other scorebooks since 1946 I'll be happy to enter the figures to get this up-to-date.

I've found the scorebooks I thought I had, safely tucked away in a box in my loft.

The ones I have in my possession are:

(1999 missig from my collection)

I've collated the 5-wicket hauls of bowlers. Bearing in mind nobody managed a 5-wicket return in 2011, check this stat out:

In 1995 Mick Redman got 5 or more wickets on no fewer than 9 occasions.

Time to pull our fingers out fellow bowlers!
