T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  Weakened by very poor availability the 5th XI travelled to Upminster to play top of the table St Andrews and were shot out for 38, which score the home side passed for the loss of one wicket.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12.  The 6th XI hosted St John’s Billericay 2nd XI and batting first scored 168-7, Alan Brown scoring 37 and Chris Slough 25 not out.  With Rayleigh lacking several regular bowlers the visitors passed this score for the loss of 1 wicket.   

As winners of the South Division of the Beaumont Seymour Essex and Suffolk League the Women & Girls XI entertained Abberton runners up in the North Division in the semi-final of the competition. Rayleigh batted first and were restricted to 77-9 in their 20 overs by some excellent bowling, fielding and throwing, only Kelly Castle 37 not out making a significant contribution to the score. This did not look enough but with tight bowling and some good catching by Rayleigh the visitors were always behind the required run rate and they fell short by 13 runs, Catherine Hodge taking 3-11. Rayleigh go through to the final for the first time. The match to be played v Colchester on Friday at a venue to be decided.
