Report of week ending 14 May 2017

Three wins and three defeats for the Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to Old Chelmsfordians 1st XI who batted first and scored 222-8 in their 45 overs, Ian Bryant, Matt Gilmore and Will Nolde all taking 2 wickets. The Rayleigh reply stared disastrously losing 4 wickets for 16 runs.  Stands between Ben Francis, Joel Barnett (42), Jason Ox (68) and Ian Bryant (30) brought an unlikely win into prospect but the visitors fell short by 13 runs with 10 balls left.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI entertained Little Waltham 1st XI and batting first totalled 262-8, Dan Frost (97) and Chris Frost (61*) leading the scoring. At 100-8 the visitors looked to be well beaten but a 9th wicket stand of over a hundred brought the visitors back into the game and some big hitting from the final pair took them even closer. However, needing 40 from the last three overs they were eventually dismissed for 232 in a highly entertaining game. To complete a highly successful personal performance Dan Frost took 5-40.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI were away at St Johns Billericay 1st XI who batted first and were bowled out for 144, Elliot Ward taking 3-31 and Adam Sullivan 3-48.  In reply Rayleigh were bowled out for 103 with Daryl Ox (29) and Adam Sullivan (22) top scoring. 

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. Old Southendians & Southchurch were the visitors to the 4th XI and batting first were bowled out for 87, Richard Mantell taking 5-13 and Will Wheeler 2-19.  Mark Bailey (40*) led the home side to a seven wicket victory.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8.  The 5th XI visited South Woodham Ferrers 2nd XI who scored 229-6 in their 40 overs. An opening partnership of 124 between Richard Verrinder (71) and Alan Brown (57 retired hurt) gave Rayleigh a promising start but after their departure the side got further and further behind the required run rate and the innings closed at 193-5. 

Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 6th XI hosted Galleywood 3rd XI, and batting first totalled 171-6, an injured Phil Wolff scoring 90*. A really tight finish ensued with Galleywood falling short by 4 runs also having lost 6 wickets.

Beaumont Seymour Women & Girls Cricket League.  Hutton were bowled out for 74, Rebecca Holyoak taking 3-7 off 4 overs. Rayleigh knocked the required runs for the loss of 1 wicket, Rebecca Holyoak (25*) and Louise Harmsworth (20) leading the scoring.
