T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI entertained Goresbrook 1st XI and batting first were bowled out for 151 in the 40th over. Jason Ox (78) held the innings together but no one else was able to stay with him to build a defensible target and the situation was not improved as Jon Cook had to retire hurt when a ball went through the visor on his helmet and broke his nose. The visitors were always up with the run rate and they won by 6 wickets in the 35th of their permitted 50 overs, Will Nolde taking 2-19.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI travelled to top of the table Great Waltham 1st XI and were bowled out for 106, which target the hosts passed in the 19th over for the loss of 1 wicket.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8.  Canvey Island 2nd XI were the visitors to a depleted 5th XI and batting first were bowled out for 151, Gary Bush, David Hall and Andy James all taking 3 wickets.

A relatively inexperienced 6th XI went to Bentley to play their 4th XI, who batted first and scored 178-6 in their 40 overs, Lee Harding taking 2-24 and Sam Lowe 2-39.

Report for week ending 18.6.17

Four wins and two defeats for the Saturday League sides.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to Great Baddow 1st XI and elected to bat. At 58-4 this did not bode well for the rest of the innings. However, Jon Cook (69) and Under 15 Jess Walker (31) making his debut for the 1st XI put on 88 for the 5th wicket and supported by Matt Lennox 40* and the rest of the tail chipping in Rayleigh finished on 247 all out in the 45th over.  The hosts were always behind the required run rate and they were bowled out for 137 in the 40th over, Ian Bryant 3-20, Luke Sullivan 2-25 and Ian Turnbull 2-30 being the pick of the bowlers. This result was a welcome return to winning ways but still leaves the side in a relegation spot.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2.  The 2nd XI entertained Terling, who batting first scored 169-10, Richard Abley 3-28, Sam Verrinder 3-46 and Chris Frost 2-33. Only Chris Frost (41*) mastered the bowling and the innings subsided to an all out score of 90.

South Woodham Ferrers 3rd XI were the visitors to the 6th XI and batting first and scored 188-7 in their 40 overs, Phil Wolff taking 2-28 and Mark Calloway 2-39. At 50-4 after 20 overs a Rayleigh victory looked extremely unlikely but Steve Rothon (86*) and Gary Bush (32) had other ideas and the winning runs were scored with three balls to spare.  

The friendly 7th XI fixture was cancelled as Havering 3rd XI were unable to raise a side.

 

Beaumont Seymour Women & Girls Cricket League.  The team played at Hutton and batting first Rayleigh scored 89-10, Rebecca Holyoak (28*). Hutton were bowled for 61, Emilia Krise taking 4-8 and Kelly Castle 4 -16.

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.

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 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.

Report of week ending 21 May

One win and five losses for the Saturday League sides. Almost all matches were played with a reduced number of overs on wet pitches and in these circumstances it is best to win the toss and field first but in all but one game the toss was lost and Rayleigh were asked to bat.

T Rippon Mid Essex Premier Division.  The 1st XI travelled to last year’s Champions Bentley 1st XI and were put into bat. With four rain interruptions Rayleigh struggled to build a competitive score only Ben Francis (41), Jason Ox (29) and Will Nolde (24) making any impression against accurate bowling and the innings closed on 141-7.

Under 15 SEDCB Peters Cup. 3rd round. Rankins batted first and scored 91-4, Will Wheeler taking 2-9 and Elliott Ward 1-12 each off 4 overs.
