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.

Report of week ending 21 August

One win and five losses (one by default) for the Rayleigh teams in the T Rippon Mid Essex League. 

The holiday season certainly took its toll on Saturday at the club with an unprecedented level of non-availability and a number of players playing two or even three teams above their normal level.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to Great Baddow 1st XI and bowled the home side out for 129, Liam Druce taking 4-43. This target should have been well within reach but on an indifferent pitch the team subsided to an all out total of 104 only Ian Turnbull (29) offering any real resistance.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI entertained Tillingham 1st XI and batting first were bowled out for 151 having been 128-3, Colin Mayor (48) and Sam Verrinder (33) leading the scoring. The visitors passed this score for the loss of 3 wickets in 36th over.    

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted Brookweald 2nd XI and batting first scored 165-10, Tony Catling (74) leading the scoring. The visitors passed the target with loss of 4 wickets, Simon Harwood taking 2-0 in his only over.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI went to Boreham 1st XI, and batting first were bowled out for 146, Kelly Castle (34) and Duncan Baldwin (31) top scoring.  The home side passed the target for the loss of 4 wickets.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 5th XI went to Beaulieu Park to play Wickham 2nd XI and batting first amassed 264-6, Mark Stratton (104), Matt Verrinder (36) and Aby Jose (30*). The home side made a spirited effort to chase down this total but ended on 235-7 to give the Club its only victory this weekend.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 11.  The 6th XI were due to play Goresbrook 4th XI but due to the very poor availability were unable to raise enough players to fulfil the fixture.
