Wins for the 2nd, 4th and 6th Rayleigh teams in the T Rippon Mid Essex League.
T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division. Saturday saw the visit of top of the table Springfield 1st XI for the fourth League fixture this season and batting first the Rayleigh 1st XI innings, anchored by Ben Francis (82), got away to an excellent start and at 128-1 looked in position to set a challenging target for the visitors. Disappointingly another mid order collapse saw them finish on 161 all out, which score Springfield passed for the loss of 7 wickets in the 34th over with Ian Bryant taking 4-46.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI travelled to Bentley 2nd XI and batting first scored 262-6, Matt Lennox (80) and Chris Frost (52*) putting on 140 in 15 overs supported by Dan Frost (42) and Steve Lynch (35).

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. Weakened by poor availability the 3rd XI visited Little Baddow and batting first scored 150-8, Steve Adams (48), Simon Harwood (28) and Neil Noble (27) leading the scoring. The home side passed the target for the loss of 2 wickets.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI entertained Danbury, and batting first scored 252-3. Rolling back the years Phil Wolff opened the innings and carried his bat for 132 not out from 132 balls and was well supported by Brad Walker (38) and John Wright (35*). They then bowled the visitors out for 178, 13 year old Adam Sullivan taking 4-49 and (the somewhat older) John Wright 3-40.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. The 5th XI hosted a strong Rayne 2nd XI who batted first and totalled 184-10, Mark Stratton taking 4-22. In reply Rayleigh started well with Paul Spratt scoring 59 but with overs to spare the innings fell away to 167 all out to lose by 17 runs.

One win and five losses (one by default) for the Rayleigh teams in the T Rippon Mid Essex League.
The holiday season certainly took its toll on Saturday at the club with an unprecedented level of non-availability and a number of players playing two or even three teams above their normal level.
T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division. The 1st XI travelled to Great Baddow 1st XI and bowled the home side out for 129, Liam Druce taking 4-43. This target should have been well within reach but on an indifferent pitch the team subsided to an all out total of 104 only Ian Turnbull (29) offering any real resistance.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI entertained Tillingham 1st XI and batting first were bowled out for 151 having been 128-3, Colin Mayor (48) and Sam Verrinder (33) leading the scoring. The visitors passed this score for the loss of 3 wickets in 36th over.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted Brookweald 2nd XI and batting first scored 165-10, Tony Catling (74) leading the scoring. The visitors passed the target with loss of 4 wickets, Simon Harwood taking 2-0 in his only over.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI went to Boreham 1st XI, and batting first were bowled out for 146, Kelly Castle (34) and Duncan Baldwin (31) top scoring. The home side passed the target for the loss of 4 wickets.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. The 5th XI went to Beaulieu Park to play Wickham 2nd XI and batting first amassed 264-6, Mark Stratton (104), Matt Verrinder (36) and Aby Jose (30*). The home side made a spirited effort to chase down this total but ended on 235-7 to give the Club its only victory this weekend.
T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 11. The 6th XI were due to play Goresbrook 4th XI but due to the very poor availability were unable to raise enough players to fulfil the fixture.
