Played at Victoria Park

- A split and bloodied lip ended captain Will Hopson-Hill's innings and the Fallopians' already fading hopes of catching a 135 total set by old foes Homerton (née Chats Palace) on a sunny evening on Victoria Park's spacious Pitch 3.
- As a frustrated Hopson-Hill (retired hurt, 20) made his way to Homerton Hospital, the Fallopian tail crumbled to an early defeat with 3 overs to go on 77 all out.
- Debuts for James Dawson and Will Ross, who each took one wicket but encountered contrasting fortunes at the crease, Dawson out bowled first ball, while Ross made 20 before losing his stumps
- Homerton won the toss and chose to bat, with their openers setting the pace with number 2 Ted scoring a quickfire 31 including five boundaries before Tim Castle bowled him on the last ball of his three over stint
- Mat Asquith kept wicket for most of the innings before swapping his pads with Will Ross and delivering two fiery overs and dismissing opener Dutch for 39
- Hopson-Hill later reported a mere hour and a half wait before his split lower lip was fixed with glue and antibiotics prescribed for an internal gash. The ball had shot up off the shoulder of the bat (or was it the glove?). Memo to captain - wear that helmet!
