Report of week ending 2 August

Three wins and three defeats for the six Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  The third placed 1st XI entertained second placed Canvey Island 1st XI and batting first totalled 277-5, Jason Ox (77), Jon Cook (59) and Andy Impey (57) being the main contributors.  The visitors were not overawed by this target and with ten overs to go the game could have gone either way but tight bowling and fielding by Rayleigh left Canvey 20 runs short with one wicket remaining.  This result means that four teams are still in the chase for the runner up spot and promotion to the Premier Division.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI visited Havering atte Bower 1st XI and batting first scored 172 all out, Chris Frost (39) and Adam Dudmish (29) top scoring.  Havering were bowled out for 116, Sam Verrinder taking 3-23 and Mike Law 3-24. 

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted bottom club Havering atte Bower 2nd XI who were without a League win this season.  Havering batted first and scored 210-6, Luke Sullivan taking 2-42 and Kalpesh Patel 2-45.  The slow reply saw contributions from Kalpesh Patel (67) and Luke Keeley (46) build a base but the home side collapsed to an all out total of 167, leaving the team perilously close to the relegation zone.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI visited Great Baddow 3rd XI who batted first and scored 152 all out after 38 overs, John Wright taking 3-27 and Sam Levett 3-29.  John Wright (62*) and Brad Walker (43) led the reply and the side passed their target for the loss of 4 wickets in the 47th over.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 5th XI travelled to Stambridge to play Rankins 2nd XI. Steve Gosling (39) and Tom Peppiatt (25) gave Rayleigh an excellent start to their innings but once again the middle and lower order batsmen failed to build on this start and the 5th XI were bowled out for 130, which score the home side passed for the loss of three wickets, Gary Bush taking 2-18.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12.  The 6th XI hosted Rankins 3rd XI and batting first scored 159-10, William Wheeler (67*) scoring a maiden half-century.  The visitors passed this score for the loss of 4 wickets, Jack Andrews taking 2-25 and Chris Slough 2-40.
