T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI entertained Goresbrook 1st XI and batting first were bowled out for 151 in the 40th over. Jason Ox (78) held the innings together but no one else was able to stay with him to build a defensible target and the situation was not improved as Jon Cook had to retire hurt when a ball went through the visor on his helmet and broke his nose. The visitors were always up with the run rate and they won by 6 wickets in the 35th of their permitted 50 overs, Will Nolde taking 2-19.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI travelled to top of the table Great Waltham 1st XI and were bowled out for 106, which target the hosts passed in the 19th over for the loss of 1 wicket.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8.  Canvey Island 2nd XI were the visitors to a depleted 5th XI and batting first were bowled out for 151, Gary Bush, David Hall and Andy James all taking 3 wickets.

Report for week ending 18.6.17

Four wins and two defeats for the Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to Great Baddow 1st XI and elected to bat. At 58-4 this did not bode well for the rest of the innings. However, Jon Cook (69) and Under 15 Jess Walker (31) making his debut for the 1st XI put on 88 for the 5th wicket and supported by Matt Lennox 40* and the rest of the tail chipping in Rayleigh finished on 247 all out in the 45th over.  The hosts were always behind the required run rate and they were bowled out for 137 in the 40th over, Ian Bryant 3-20, Luke Sullivan 2-25 and Ian Turnbull 2-30 being the pick of the bowlers. This result was a welcome return to winning ways but still leaves the side in a relegation spot.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI entertained Terling, who batting first scored 169-10, Richard Abley 3-28, Sam Verrinder 3-46 and Chris Frost 2-33. Only Chris Frost (41*) mastered the bowling and the innings subsided to an all out score of 90.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI went to play Rayne 1st XI and batting first were bowled out for 126, Colin Mayor (34) and Sam Law (26).  Rayne passed this target for the loss of 1 wicket in the 30th over. 

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI hosted Goresbrook 3rd XI and batting first scored 176-8 in their 45 overs, Steve Gosling (47), Tony Catling (36) and Alan Brown (27*) leading the scoring. In reply the visitors were bowled out for 146, Tony Catling taking 4-35 and Tom Godfrey 3-19.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8.  The 5th XI visited East Hanningfield 2nd XI who batting first scored 145-8 in their 40 overs, David Hall 4-21 (and 3 catches) and Andy James 3-24 being the pick of the bowlers. Mark Stratton (52) and Richard Verrinder (30) led Rayleigh to a three wicket victory. 

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. South Woodham Ferrers 3rd XI were the visitors to the 6th XI and batting first and scored 188-7 in their 40 overs, Phil Wolff taking 2-28 and Mark Calloway 2-39. At 50-4 after 20 overs a Rayleigh victory looked extremely unlikely but Steve Rothon (86*) and Gary Bush (32) had other ideas and the winning runs were scored with three balls to spare.  

The friendly 7th XI fixture was cancelled as Havering 3rd XI were unable to raise a side.
