Empire Club Records

Despite our club's relatively short history we have come a long way and have now reached the point at which we need to start recording some of the notable individual performances turned in during Finnish League matches.         This page was spurred on by the fantastic performance of Imran Muhammad (VC) in early season 2008 with his unbelievable 5 wickets in one over and 7 for 21 overall.                                                                                         We hope this page will be of interest to all club members and please do point out any notable league averages or batting performances worthy of inclusion. 

Prior season records will be available shortly.
