Report of week ending 8 May

Rayeigh Cricket Club’s League season started with three wins and three defeats for the six Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division. The 1st XI travelled to High Roding 1st XI and batting first were given a good start by Ben Francis (60) but with other wickets falling regularly the ninth and unbeaten tenth wicket stands between Ian Turnbull (52*) and Ian Bryant and Richard Abley proved invaluable to take the total to 215-9. The home side were always in the chase but fine spells from Jim Ewing (5-35) and Jason Ox (3-43) saw Rayleigh home by 16 runs.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. Weakened by poor availability the 2nd XI hosted Hornchurch Athletic 1st XI expecting a difficult afternoon. Batting first Rayleigh scored 180-9, Kalpesh Patel (39) top scoring. Hornchurch were bowled out for 51, James Wratten taking 5-33 and Riju 3-16.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI visited Little Waltham 2nd XI who batted first and scored 208-8. Steve Adams (42), Steve Gosling (46*) and John Wright (53*) led Rayleigh to a 5 wicket victory.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 7. The 4th XI were at home to Eastwood 2nd XI who batted first and scored 244-8, Mihir Patel taking 5-48 off 10 overs. In reply only Mark Bailey (30) troubled the bowlers and Rayleigh ended on 167-8 to lose by 77 runs.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. The 5th XI entertained Navestock and Ardleigh Green 2nd XI. Batting first Rayleigh totalled 227-7, skipper Phil Hammond scoring 103 with good support from Paul Burgess (38) and Dave Turner (31). In an exciting finish the visitors passed this target in the penultimate over for the loss of 4 wickets.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 11. A young and inexperienced 6th XI travelled to Stambridge to play a similarly youthful but more experienced Rankins 3rd XI. The home side batted first and totalled 255-5, Paul Cox taking 4-29 off his 9 overs. This total was well out of reach for Rayleigh against some good accurate bowling and they were eventually all out for 58.

Beaumont Seymour Ladies League. The Women and Girls XI travelled to play Kelvedon & Feering and batting first scored 76-2, Kelly Castle 26* and Louise Harmsworth 22. The hosts passed this score for the loss of 3 wickets, Louise Harmsworth taking 2-21.

Under 15 Peters Cup. Rayleigh 94-7, Jess Walker (31) and Toby Turner (27) top scoring, R Castle (53 retired) and H Klein (28*) knocked off the runs for Hadleigh U15s without losing a wicket.

Under 13 Bradford Cup. Leigh batting first scored 121-2 off their 20 overs, Senith taking 2-14 and Edward Curtis 2-13. Matt Bumpus (33 retired) and Alex Hernandez (20) gave Rayleigh a good start but still needing ten to win off the last over Rayleigh U13s won off the last ball in a thrilling finish.

ECB - Helmet safety guidelines

The ECB have re-issued their helmet guidelines as shown below

ECB Guidance Note: Safety measures for helmets within recreational cricket.

The ECB has recently announced new helmet safety measures, which are being introduced with a view to reducing the risk of head and facial injuries within the game. The purpose of this brief note is to assist Leagues and Clubs at the recreational level to understand the key elements of these changes and what they mean.

Players over the age of 18

The ECB strongly recommends that all adult recreational cricketers should wear helmets for certain activities, preferably which meet the most recent British Safety Standard (see below). This recommendation applies to batting against all types of bowling, wicket-keepers standing up to the wicket (who may as an alternative wear face protectors) and fielders fielding closer than eight yards from the batsman’s middle stump, except behind the wicket on the off side.

Under 18s

The position in relation to u18s currently remains unchanged, and is governed by the ‘ECB Guidance on the Wearing of Cricket Helmets by Young Players’ (www.ecb.co.uk/youngplayershelmetguidance).

In essence, batsmen and wicket-keepers standing up to the stumps must wear head protection when playing or practising. That Guidance should be referred to in full for the position in relation to u18s.

British Safety Standard

The latest British Safety Standard is BS7928:2013 (for both adults and juniors). The full list of helmets meeting this standard is available at www.ecb.co.uk/helmets. For wicket-keeping face protectors the relevant British Safety Standard is BS7929-2:2009 (again, for both adults and juniors).

The ECB understands that there is currently no specific women's helmet and as a consequence no specific standard for women's cricket helmets. As the size of the standard women's cricket ball is between the standard men and junior balls, it is recommended that women use helmets that have been tested against both the men's and junior sized ball, or at least against the junior size ball (as that could potentially get through the gap above the face guard on a men's helmet).

What do Leagues and Clubs need to do?

Whilst it is strongly recommended that all adult recreational cricketers wear helmets in the on-field circumstances detailed above, it is not mandatory for them to do so. For the avoidance of doubt, Leagues or Clubs do not need to go above and beyond the ECB’s recommendation by forcing their cricketers to wear helmets. However, Leagues and Clubs in recreational cricket should ensure that their cricketers are made aware of the ECB’s above recommendation in relation to helmets, including the need to check that any newly purchased helmets meet the latest British Safety Standard.

The ECB recommends that Leagues and Clubs bring the link above (i.e www.ecb.co.uk/helmets) to the attention of their cricketers and encourage all cricketers to carefully consider their own health and safety regarding helmet use. Leagues and Clubs should always ensure that they have adequate public liability insurance.
