Rayleigh Women & Girls first win

Rayleigh Women & Girls home to Copdock

The Rayleigh Ladies made a great start to their final game on Friday playing against Copdock from the North division in the Beaumont Senior League play-off match, winning the toss and choosing to field first.

Up to bowl first were Lorraine and Louise H and the field all ready Louise H took a great wicket in her first 2 overs. Marie then managed to get a great catch from Louise’s bowling so that was 2 down with Rayleigh looking good in the field. Then there was another catch with Lorraine’s bowling with Francesca catching it behind the stumps. This game seems to be going Rayleigh’s way with all the team walking in and backing up. The next lady to go was with a run out, and another bowled by Michelle King and all looking well for Rayleigh. The next lady was a good teamwork by Louise H and Marie with another catch. Michelle bowled another 2 ladies out and Kelly bowled another. Copdock were bowled out for 65 with Michelle King and Louise Harmsworth both claiming 3 wickets, Lorraine Frost and Kelly Castle each getting 1 wicket.

The Rayleigh ladies then decided their batting order and out to the wicket first were Loraine and Michelle with winning in mind. Lorraine was out for 0 I think that this was due to playing to much beach cricket while away with Mr Frost and the family. Next in was Amy McGowan who managed to keep hitting the ball to the end with a great total of 13 runs. Michelle was then bowled out for 14 with Marie in then but only managed to get 4, Colette was then in then out with a total of 5 runs it was not looking good for Rayleigh with 5 ladies down already then Zoe went out and managed to sail Rayleigh ladies home with 8 not out with Amy McGowan.

All the Rayleigh Ladies played well in this game with their field bowling and batting. The bus will be touring around the Rayleigh ground next Friday to celebrate the first win of the Rayleigh ladies team.


SEDCB Thurrock U14 Indoor Sixes Competition 2009-2010

Starting way back in November last year and variously interrupted by snow and volcanic ash, this U14 indoor cricket competition finally came to it’s conclusion on Monday 28th June when Rayleigh met Orsett in a title decider at The Grays School.

After 8 games each against the likes of Horndon, Belhus, Stanford-le-Hope, Basildon and Grays it all came down to the final league fixture – a match originally scheduled for Easter-time but held over when the volcanic ash incident meant some players and coaches would be missing.

Tillingham were the visitors to the 1st XI, who won the toss, and unsurprisinly batted first on a very hot afternoon. Danny White (108), Jon Cook (56) and Neil Henson (43) led the scoring to take the 1st XI to 326 all out. In reply Tillingham scored 200, Ian Bryant taking 5–45.

The 2nd XI went to Hullbridge and again batted first totalling 166 all out with John Stirk and Tony Catling both scoring 37. This did not look too difficult a target but John Strirk (3–26) and Richard Abley (3–39) had other ideas and Hullbridge were all out for 142.

The 3rd XI entertained Broomfield, who batted first and scored 175–6, Adam Dudmish taking 3–54. Richard Verrinder and Jack Vile both scored 42 in Rayleigh’s reply of 176–6 to win by 4 wickets.

The 4th XI went to Bentley and scored 225–4, with Brad Walker (87) top scoring and Hugh Kirby scoring a rapid 55 not out. In a tight finish Bentley were 222–6 at the end of their 45 overs to give the 4th XI a win by 3 runs.

The 5th XI welcomed South Woodham Ferrers 3rd XI to Purleigh and batting first the visitors scored 184–8, Shaun Grob taking 3–18. In reply the 5th XI collapsed to 59 all out.

The 6th XI game was not played as no pitch was prepared at Gloucester Park which was very disappointing for our visitors from Chelmsford and for our own players.

All the action from w/e 13th June 2010

There were disappointing performances from four of the Club’s five league teams on Saturday, with only one batsman scoring more than 50.

The 1st XI visited Little Waltham, who batted first and scored 195–9, Ian Bryant taking 3–41. In reply the 1st XI collapsed to 118 all out.

The 2nd XI entertained Old Chelmsfordians 2nd XI and batting first scored 164 all out, John Stirk top scoring with 55. OCs passsed this total for the loss of 7 wickets, John Stirk taking 3–27 and Nathan Healey 3–41.

The 4th XI entertained Rayleigh Fairview 3rd XI and scored 91–9 in their 45 overs, with Gary Bush (34) top scoring. Fairview passed this score without losing a wicket.

The 5th XI went to Upminster to play Havering Atte Bower 4th XI and were asked to bat and at 63–7 looked to be heading for another score under 100. A stand of 48 between Ian King and Brian Dawbarn helped set a reasonable target of 117 on a pitch of very variable bounce. The Havering batters showed better application and took the score to 119 for the loss of 2 wickets.

The Women & Girls XI played a return match against Champions Kelvedon & Feering who batted first and scored 140–1. Coaching to run quick singles backfired badly in Rayleigh’s innings with two senior batters being run cheaply and the team collapsed to 21 all out.
