Two wins and three defeats for the Saturday League teams.  

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  The 1st XI travelled to Bentley 2nd XI, who batted first and totalled 252-5. Rayleigh were looking on their way to a comfortable win after 30 overs but a middle order collapse meant a last ditch scramble to win by 2 wickets with 2 balls to spare.  Andy Impey (96) and George Barker (59) were the main contributors to Rayleigh’s innings.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI entertained Terling 2nd XI, who batted first and scored 244-4, Liam Harrold taking 3-61.  Owen Davies (48), John Wright (44), Brad Walker (42) and Adam Krise (42) all contributed to another tight finish, Rayleigh winning in the last over having lost 5 wickets.

Report of week ending 16 August http://rayleighcricketclub.org.uk/index.php/717-report-of-week-ending-16-august http://rayleighcricketclub.org.uk/index.php/717-report-of-week-ending-16-august

Two wins and four losses for the six Saturday League sides.and defeat for the Women & Girls XI in their League final.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  Third placed 1st XI entertained top of the table Rettendon 1st XI and were invited to bat.  Ben Francis (81) and Andy Impey (43) shared a partnership of 108 for the first wicket with Rhys Howard (25), George Barker (25), Matt Jahanfar and Sam Verrinder keeping the score moving to reach a total of 262 all out in the 45th over.  At 85 without loss after 11 overs the visitors looked on course for an easy victory but an accurate spell of bowling by Ian Bryant (5-32 off his 10 overs) changed the course of the game and Rettendon were bowled out for 197. This result lifts the 1st XI into second place in the table with a key game against Brookweald 1st XI next Saturday in the chase for promotion to the Premier Division.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI visited Writtle 1st XI who batted first and scored 195-8, Kelly Castle taking 4-32.  Adam Dudmish (51) and Kelly Castle (34) led the reply but the 2nd XI fell short of their target by 17 runs. The 6 points picked up in the game ensure the side will remain in Division 2 next year.    

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted St John’s Billericay 1st XI in a game both sides needed to win to avoid potentially dropping into the relegation zone. Rayleigh batted first and at 102-5 off 30 overs looked unlikely to set a competitive target. However some powerful hitting by Alex Jones (99) took the home side’s score to 234-7. Disappointingly this score was not enough and Billericay passed their target for the loss of 7 wickets leaving the 3rd XI perilously close to the relegation zone with games against the top two sides in the Division remaining.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI visited Willow Herbs 2nd XI who batted first and were bowled out for 114, Liam Harrold taking 3-15. Steve Gosling (42) and Owen Davies (34) helped steer the 4th XI to a 6 wicket victory.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 5th XI travelled to Rayne 2nd XI and batting first scored 138-8, Tom Peppiatt (25), Ian King (24) and Glenn Coleman (22) top scoring.  The home side passed for the target with the loss of two wickets.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12.  The 6th XI were due to play South Woodham Ferrers 3rd XI but with 53 players unavailable for a variety of reasons, disappointingly the Club was unable to fulfil a League fixture for the first time ever.

The Women & Girls XI travelled to Lawford Lane, Chelmsford to play Colchester in the final of the Beaumont Seymour League and batting first lost 3 early wickets and struggled to a score of 69-7 in their 20 overs, Sophie Lennox (18) top scoring.  Colchester passed this target in the 11th over for the loss of 2 wickets.  Nevertheless it was an excellent achievement to reach the final.

 

The cricket week was quite badly affected by the weather losing the Thursday game altogether and Friday’s game being curtailed to a 20:20.  The Club lost quite heavily to a young Galleywood XI on the Tuesday but had a good win on the Wednesday against Old Victorians with George Barker scoring a century. On Sunday the President’s XI scored 208-8, President Brad walker scoring 48 and Richard Mantell taking 3-32. Batting second the Club XI fell short by 4 runs on 204-8 in the last over with both Jon cook and Steve Gosling retiring on 50.  Thanks to Brad and Sue for organising the whole week and to Ken Field for allowing the club access to his swimming pool during the weekend.

Report of week ending 22 August http://rayleighcricketclub.org.uk/index.php/718-report-of-week-ending-22-august http://rayleighcricketclub.org.uk/index.php/718-report-of-week-ending-22-august

Two wins and four defeats for the Saturday League teams.  With 14 regular players unavailable from the first three teams availability for the lower sides was poor once again.  However we did manage to field 6 sides this week.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  The 1st XI travelled to Brookweald 1st XI, who had some impressive wins in recent weeks and batting first after losing an early wicket they scored quickly off the first 10 overs.  However Ian Bryant (5-30) and Sam Verrinder (4-21) reduced the home side to an all out total of 133.  Rayleigh cruised to a comfortable win with Jason Ox (47*), Ben Francis (36) and Any Impey (26*) leading the scoring.  This win means the 1st XI need 2 points from next week’s final league fixture to secure promotion to the Premier Division as runners-up.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI entertained top of the table Rainham 1st XI, who batted first and totalled 185 -10, Danny Frost taking 4-35. Will Nolde (89) and Chris Frost (29) led the reply and Rayleigh passed their target in the penultimate over having lost 8 wickets.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI went to play Galleywood 1st XI, and batting first were bowled out for 103, James Wratten (21) top scoring.  The hosts passed this target for the loss of 3 wickets.  This result leaves the 3rd XI in the relegation zone with next week’s fixture against top of the Division Rayne 1st XI.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI entertained high flying Wickham 1st XI and batting first totalled 193-8, Brad Walker (78) top scoring.  The visitors passed this score for the loss of 6 wickets, John Wright taking 3-43.   

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10. The 5th XI hosted Havering Atte Bower 3rd XI in a game to decide who would almost certainly be relegated.  The 5th XI were bowled out for 85, which target the visitors knocked off for the loss of 1 wicket.       

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12. A very inexperienced 6th XI travelled to Margaretting to play a similarly weakened Galleywood 3rd XI. Batting first Rayleigh were bowled out for 120 in the final over, Chris Slough (65) leading the scoring. Using a number of bowlers who had rarely bowled in a league match before, Rayleigh made the home side work hard for their win which they did eventually by 5 wickets.

South Essex District Cricket Board Under 13B East Division.  Rayleigh Fairview Under 13s 102-5. Aaron Unsworth 2-14 and Emilia Krise 1-13 each off 4 overs.  Rayleigh Under 13B Wyverns 61-8.   Rayleigh Fairview won by 41 runs.

Three wins and three defeats for the six Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  The third placed 1st XI entertained second placed Canvey Island 1st XI and batting first totalled 277-5, Jason Ox (77), Jon Cook (59) and Andy Impey (57) being the main contributors.  The visitors were not overawed by this target and with ten overs to go the game could have gone either way but tight bowling and fielding by Rayleigh left Canvey 20 runs short with one wicket remaining.  This result means that four teams are still in the chase for the runner up spot and promotion to the Premier Division.

The 3rd XI hosted bottom club Havering atte Bower 2nd XI who were without a League win this season.  Havering batted first and scored 210-6, Luke Sullivan taking 2-42 and Kalpesh Patel 2-45.  The slow reply saw contributions from Kalpesh Patel (67) and Luke Keeley (46) build a base but the home side collapsed to an all out total of 167, leaving the team perilously close to the relegation zone.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI visited Great Baddow 3rd XI who batted first and scored 152 all out after 38 overs, John Wright taking 3-27 and Sam Levett 3-29.  John Wright (62*) and Brad Walker (43) led the reply and the side passed their target for the loss of 4 wickets in the 47th over.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 5th XI travelled to Stambridge to play Rankins 2nd XI. Steve Gosling (39) and Tom Peppiatt (25) gave Rayleigh an excellent start to their innings but once again the middle and lower order batsmen failed to build on this start and the 5th XI were bowled out for 130, which score the home side passed for the loss of three wickets, Gary Bush taking 2-18.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12.  The 6th XI hosted Rankins 3rd XI and batting first scored 159-10, William Wheeler (67*) scoring a maiden half-century.  The visitors passed this score for the loss of 4 wickets, Jack Andrews taking 2-25 and Chris Slough 2-40.
