Report for week ending 11.6.17

A disappointing weekend with two wins and four defeats for the Saturday League sides and failure of our batting to achieve fairly moderate targets

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI entertained neighbours Rettendon 1st XI who batted first and scored 169-7 in their 45 overs, Luke Sullivan taking 3-37.  An opening stand of 50 between Adam Vyse (35) and Jason Ox (20) gave Rayleigh a promising start but the side collapsed to an all out total of 117 to give visitors victory by 52 runs.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI visited Goresbrook 2nd XI, who batting first scored 164-8, Chris Frost taking 3 wickets.  Only Callum Ginbey (43) mastered the Goresbrook bowling and the innings ended 12 runs short on 152.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted Writtle 2nd XI who batting first were bowled out for 149, Steve Adams taking 3-22 and James Wratten 3-32. This total proved too much for the 3rd XI who only managed to score 89, Mike Law 25* leading the scoring.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI went to Beaulieu Park to play Wickham who scored 214-7 in their 45 overs, Tom Godfrey taking 2-43. John Wright (63*) and Matt Walker (39) broke the pattern of the day and steered Rayleigh to a 5 wicket victory in the 44th over.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8.  The 5th XI were at home to unbeaten Rainham 3rd XI and batting first scored 163-8 in their 40 overs, Mark Stratton (75) and Phil Wolff (28) top scoring. In a tense finish Rainham were restricted to 162-8 to give Rayleigh victory by 1 run, Aby Jose 3-28 and David Hall 2-39 were the pick of the bowlers.

Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. The 6th XI went to Boreham 2nd XI who batted first and scored 222-7 in their 40 overs, Jack Himpfen -Jones taking 5-47. In reply Rayleigh were bowled out for 99.   

Friendly fixture, a very young and inexperienced 7th XI played Westcliff 4th XI at Wickford Memorial Ground. The youngsters bowled and fielded extremely well and bowled Westcliff out for 108, Callum Mayfield and Paul Cox both taking 2-10 and Jack Andrews 2-17. The Rayleigh innings started well reaching 41-1 but the introduction of the Pitchforth Brothers into the attack reduced Rayleigh to 49-9, Alex Pitchforth taking 6-2 off 6 overs.  A last wicket stand of 23 added some slight respectability to the final total of 72.

 

Beaumont Seymour Women & Girls Cricket League.  The team hosted Great Waltham and batting first Rayleigh scored 129-3, Sophie Lennox (28), Rebecca Holyoak (26) and Louise Harmsworth (25) all retired. The visitors scored 110-7 in their 20 overs, Rebecca Holyoak taking 3-27.

South Essex District Cricket Board Under 15 East League. Rayleigh Eagles played Leigh. Rayleigh batted first and were bowled out for 82, a target Leigh passed for the loss of 1 wicket in the 10th over.  

 

 

 

 

Report of week ending 4 June.

A better weekend with four wins and two defeats for the Saturday League sides despite poor availability with a large number of players unavailable due to holidays

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to Brookweald 1st XI and batting first scored 222-8, Jason Ox (84) and Will Nolde (24) leading the scoring. The home side seemed quite comfortable having only lost one wicket after 20 overs but the introduction of Ian Bryant (4-41) into the attack made it a more interesting contest. Wickets continued to fall but Brookweald only needed 10 runs with two overs and two wickets left. However, 2nd XI captain Chris Frost (2-7) remained calm and took the last two wickets to give team a welcome victory by 8 runs and lift the Club off the bottom of the table.  

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI hosted Chadwell Heath 1st XI. Adam Krise captaining a team for the first time invited the visitors to bat and they scored 139-9 in their 45 overs, Richard Abley taking 3-8 off 10 overs, Sam Verrinder 2-32 plus two catches and Lee Brown 2-22. Adam Krise (34*), Adam Vyse (34), Callum Ginbey (23) and Daryl Ox (30*) took Rayleigh to victory by 7 wickets in 26 overs.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI visited Hornchurch Athletic 2nd XI who batting first and totalled 181-6, Mike Law taking 2-48.  Rayleigh were bowled out for 139, only Toby Turner (49) mastering the bowling.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI entertained Hatfield Peverel and batting first scored 161-8 in their 45 overs with Mark Bailey (41) top scoring and Tony Catling (34*). In reply the visitors were bowled out for 150, Tony Catling taking 3-29 and John Wright 3-35.

Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. Oaklands were the visitors to the 6th XI and batting first were bowled out for 141 in 35 overs, Lee Harding taking 3-19 and Jack Himpfen-Jones 3-22. This total proved too much for Rayleigh who subsided to an all out total of 119.  

Friendly fixture, The 7th XI played Chelmsford 6th XI at Lake Meadows, Billericay. Chelmsford batted first and scored 142-9, two features of the innings being that 8 bowlers were used and all took 1 wicket with Senith Fernando taking 2-16 and some incredible fielding by Jon Chase returning to the club after 7 years.  He also top scored with 24 as the team were bowled out for 71.

Beaumont Seymour Women & Girls Cricket League.  The team were away at Kelvedon but the journey took more than 2 ¼ hours due to a broken down tanker and subsequent accident on the A12. It was agreed to play a 10 over game and Rayleigh batted first and scored 80-0, Kelly Castle (27) and Rebecca Holyoak (25) both retired. This looked to be a winning total but quick running by Kelvedon and poor fielding by Rayleigh allowed Kelvedon to reach 84-1 in the final over.

South Essex District Cricket Board Under 15 West League.  Rayleigh Dragons faced Orsett & Thurrock for the second week running at their ground this time. Orsett scored 105-8 in their 20 overs, Jess Walker taking 3-25 and Jack Andrews 2-25.
