Our under 11's perform on the big stage tonight as Dave Whisker takes a squad of 7 under 11's to play in the mini-Matchplay at the Ford County Ground, Chelmsford under lights. We are hopeful that the forecast rain this afternoon will clear to allow a great evenings cricket.
The 9s and 11s are also in action in an 8 a side tournament at Belhus on Sunday.
A summary of the various sides 2018 campaigns is below:
u9s have completed their league programme and have won 2 & lost 3 to finish 4th in a league that Upminster A look likely winners of.
u11s have won 3 & lost 2 of their 5 games so far, with home games against Upminster B and Harold Wood and an away game at Ardleigh Green either to come or result to be entered. A 4th/5th placed finish in the 9 team league looks likely, Upminster A again the likely winers.
u13s have one game remaining (or to be entered) against Ardleigh Green and have so far won 1 and lost 4 of their games, so will finish in the bottom half of the 7 team league, which Hornchurch look like winning.
u15s have won 4 out of 4 games and will clinch the league title if they beat Gidea Park & Romford in their one remaining game.
The u15's have also progressed through the group stages of the Cox & Kings Cup as runners-up in our pool to Woodford Wells. We have drawn South Woodford away on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August.
u16s - after progressing through the group stages as runners-up to Hainault & Clayhall, to whom we lost narrowly, we were eliminated in a high scoring match in the first knock out stage at Bancroft Lions, despite a magnificent Colts record score of 146 from Danny Gillham.
Wanstead retained the trophy yesterday beating Hainault & Clayhall by 100 runs at the County ground.
u19s - after a fantastic win at Oakfield Parks in the first group game and a concession from Newham in game 2 it was all downhill after that, as we lost heavily to Fives & Heronians and Barking to lose out for 2nd place on run-rate to our neighbours from Mayesbrook Park, Oakfield winning the pool.
