J Broad was the best bowler for Rankins with 2 for 22. Both teams consolidate themselves in Division 3 for next season.

Broomfield 1st xi V East Hanningfield & Gt. Burstead 1st xi – Broomfield win by 5 wickets

A top of a table clash between 2 of the 3 front runners in the league throughout the season and both teams have put together a successful season. A lot was at stake for both sides, Broomfield still had the chance of promotion and East Hanningfield knew that a victory at Mill lane would see them as division winners.

East Hanningfield and Great Burstead batted first and important fifties from Hughes, who top scored with 79 and Newman 57 and a useful contribution from Hemming 32, ensured East Hanningfield posted 208-7 from their 45 overs. Fisher and Turner had figures of 2 for 43 and 2 for 44 respectively has they were notable performers with the ball for the home side. As we have seen this season 208 looked a little light as Broomfield have posted score of 250 plus at home this season, but in a pressurised game it was anyone’s guess.

In reply it was Skipper Aaron Eglin that top scored with 91 to steer his side towards the target score Lyon 29 and Baines 38 were the other contributors of note as Broomfield chased down the target with a little over 4 overs to spare. Finishing on 211-5 from 40.4 overs. The notable performer with the ball for East Hanningfield was A Stevens who bowled 10 overs for only 12 runs which included 7 maidens and one wicket but this wasn’t enough to keep a strangled hold on the Broomfield batsmen as they got the runs required. Victory means that Broomfield finish in 3rd this year and East Hanningfield will finish runners up as the result between Hatfield Peverel and Navestock didn’t go the way they wanted.

Hatfield Peverel 1st XI & Navestock 1st XI – Hatfield Peverel win by 100 runs

1 of 2 games in the division that going into the final day had any significance, a win for Navestock would dent any chance of Hatfield Peverel winning the league but also potential to slip out of the

promotion spots as well, but a win for Peverel and anything could happen depending on the result from the Broomfield and East Hanningfield match.

Navestock 1st XI Won the toss and elected to field.

Hatfield Peverel scored – 225 ao (44.4 Overs), Danny McIntyre top scored with 52, as Ryan Scott and Matt Simmons were in the wickets again not for the first time this season as they finished up with figures of 4-58 and 3-25 respectively.

In reply Navestock kept with the rate but the steady flow of wickets meant that they finished off with 125 all out from 27 overs, Tiraj Patel the batsmen of note that score 35 as Danny McIntyre completed an important all-round performance adding to his earlier 52 with 5-38 from his bowling spell. A comfortable victory in the end for Hatfield Peverel and news that Broomfield had won meant Hatfield Peverel were this season’s Division 3 Champions

High Easter 1s vs Old Chelmsfordians 2s – OCs win by 6 wickets.

Old Chelmsfordians travelled to High Easter for their last game in Division 3 for this season. It was a match that didn’t have any significance, so both sides gave opportunities to a couple of their under 15s, in a league which have seen a lot of youth players playing.

Old Chelmsfordians won the toss and chose to bowl, feeling chasing would be easier on this small ground but also going with their stronger suit that bowling has been this year. It was a ground where you would get good value for your shots at High Easter, a short and fast outfield meant plenty of runs were there to be had. Skipper Alex Critchell started well and bowled with pace and extracting bounce from the surface as well as utilising the inswinger as well, bowled through with figures of 10-1-42-3. The introduction of Ross Cant (10-3-29-3) put further pressure on with his tight and consistent bowling and the home side who would themselves 6 down for about 90 with Jon Norgrove with any real contribution of 34. But there was a counter attacking partnership between N Glidden (37) and L Bentley (57), who showed that if you got yourself in then in can cash in on anyloose deliveries which was exactly what they did. Attacking the short boundaries and some big blows got High Easter towards a competitive score. George Landers returned into the action and picked up two in two but the hat-trick wasn’t to be. Dave Grainger bowled towards the end of the innings and like landers will have an opportunity for hat-trick at the start of next season. High Easter were all out for 172 from 40.3 overs.

In reply OCs got off to a good start and Rich Paton and Dom Norman put on 92 as the opening partnership Norman the aggressor with near a run a ball 51 but was out the ball after he reached the landmark. Paton then hit a 6 to go to his own half-century, but tried a repeat but like Norman fell the ball after reaching the landmark and out for 55 to Tom Moss who tried to control the run rate with the standout figures 7-1-34-2. Mann and Greenwood also picked up a wicket a piece but Andy Cook 19* and Jonny Alderton 0* saw OCs home who win their last two games of the season.

Week 17 – 24th Aug 2019

N Gliddon 10-0-50-4 and L Bentley 10-0-65-2 were the notable performance with the ball for High Easter.

In reply High Easter were bowled out for 186 and with regular wickets meant the away side fell behind the rate and needed someone to push on past fifty. L Bentley added 49 to his 2 wickets earlier in the day and J Moss 39 the top scorers for High Easter. Wickets were shared throughout the Galleywood seam attack with Sam Adams 7-3-16-2, Nick Clayden 9.1-2-33-2 and Zack Hicks 10-2-54-2, all taking two wickets each.

Rankins won the toss and to chose to bat first and posted 244 for 9 from 45 overs contributions all round but Treen was the top performer with the bat scoring 73 with Patel also scoring 61. McIntyre and Richardson both picked up 3 wickets each McIntyre’s figures were creditable with 10 overs 3 for 37.

A tough run chase was in store for Hatfield Peverel, Hills 65 and Clark 58 gave the league leaders every chance of chasing down their target, but after they were both out it was a struggle for the away side as they were all out for 160 from 37 overs. P Patel bowled 7 overs and took 7 for 14 to dent the away sides chances of the league title. Despite this Hatfield Peverel are still very much in the hunt a slip up from East Hanningfield on the final round of fixtures and Peverel can snatch the league title. A Rankins victory now means that both Old Chelmsfordians and Rettendon and Rayleigh Fairview are unfortunately relegated.

Navestock 1s vs Springfield 3s – Match Tied

In reply similarly to the Springfield no batsmen passed 50 for Navestock Patel 38 and Enderley 42 pushed the home side close to the target but it wasn’t quite enough a tense finish was to come and as the game ended in a thrilling tie, this game is one of 9 games across all divisions that has ended in a tie this season.

Old Chelmsfordians 2s vs Broomfield 1s – Old Chelmsfordians win by 4 wickets

A game with much significance Broomfield looking to push not only for promotion but a potential league title, Old Chelmsfordians knew that nothing short of a win will do to avoid relegation and the hope of the result between Rankins and Hatfield Peverel go in their favour.

Broomfield batted first on what people felt was going to be a good batting deck and in very hot conditions. Alex Critchell made an early inroad into the Broomfield batting line up and the introduction

of Matt Robson who took 2 wickets in his first two overs left Broomfield 44-3 from 13 overs. Matt Turner and Rich Lynn both scored half-centuries 52 and 62 respectively but pressure back on the home side bowling attack. The introduction of Jones saw the dismissal of Turner. Wickets fell after Turner’s dismissal with Lynn watching on from the other end. Owen Jones finished with a spell of 5-0-16-3, 15 year old Jonny Alderton also picked up a wicket in his first over on his 2s debut.

Alex Critchell returned to finish off the innings with 10-2-35-3 as Broomfield were all out for 168.

In reply Old Chelmsfordians opened up with Dom Norman and Chris Gregory and the opening stand got the home side off to a flyer and were 65-0 after 10 overs. The OCs batting though after the loss of the first wicket were put under pressure and in period where only 30 runs were scored 3 wickets lost in 12 overs put Broomfield right back in the game and after Dom Norman was dismissed for an entertaining 53. Disciplined and accurate bowling from Cowell 10-2-23-1 and Eglin 10-2-32-3 slowed up the scoring rate and put a strangle hold on the OCs batsmen coming in, meant the game was in the balance. OCs were 126-6 requiring another 43 for victory from 13 overs, Andy Cook 49* and Matt Robson 16* saw OCs home with just over 3 overs left.

Broomfield can still get promoted, however news broke of a Rankins win against Hatfield Peverel meaning OCs were relegated despite best efforts and Broomfield will look to leapfrog Peverel on the last day.

A promising start by the visitors proved deceiving as title chasing EH&GB easily overcame bottom of the table Rettendon and Rayleigh Fairview 2s.

But N Davidson (4-54) and Hemming (3-19) soon found their lines and lengths on a bouncy wicket, reducing Fairview to 54-5. The bowlers were ably supported by some excellent close catching from B Leworthy who took four catches including a screamer in the gully to dismiss the in-form A Keating first ball. Only A Jellett (32) and Moore (15) offered much resistance as Fairview were dismissed for a poor 105 all out from 29.4 overs.

Navestock 1s vs Old Chelmsfordians 2s – Navestock win by 6 wickets

Navestock won the toss on a pitch that had been uncovered overnight and was soft from that Friday’s rain. It turned out it was an important toss to win. The Navestock bowlers used the conditions bowled on good lines and lengths as pitch was popping off a length and keeping low, it just needed an OCs batsman to stay in and cash in later on as the pitch dried out. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case as

regular wickets as the away side collapsed from 36-1 to 62-9. As B Greaves 10-4-27-3, D Firth 10-2-13-4 and R Scott 8-0-21-2 ripped through the OCs order and used pitch very well. Late resistance from Matt Robson and Jake Edwards frustrated the home side for a while as their partnership creeped the away side over 100, Robson finally fell for 35 leaving Edwards 8*. OCs finished on 109 all out after 40.5 overs.

In reply the target didn’t seemed challenging but there was still plenty in the pitch as it proved in the Navestock innings to make the run chase difficult.

As T Patel top scored with 37, K Scott 24, as L Faulkner and M Richards saw Navestock home.

The home side had Springfield about 90 odd for 5 before a small rain shower interrupted proceedings and meant the game was reduced to 43 overs a side. After the break Matt Trim 59* and Troy Nice 36, counter-attack in an attempt to propel Springfield towards that 200 mark which many thought would be a par score or just above par and also a contribution from J Freestone 41 meant that Springfield posted 196/6 from 43 overs, Critchell took 2 for 34 from his bowling spell.

In response Old Chelmsfordians took 12 off the first over, but once the Springfield opening bowlers got their radars right they bowled tightly and testing the OCs batsmen, L England doing damage earlier as the OCs innings fell into the similar pattern of the Springfield innings. A partnership between Rich Paton and Alex Critchell, who both fought hard and knuckled down, Paton was soon out to England, but Critchell hit two big sixes and swept well against the spinners as he made his way towards 50 before England struck again to remove Critchell for 48, the skipper at least had given the home side a chance. But with the pitch not easy to start on and the run rate nearing 9-10 an over the Springfield bowlers bowled well towards the end and mopped up the tail. L England finished with 5 for 21. Another close game between the two sides again, but increases the likelihood of an OCs relegation.

Rankins 1s vs Old Chelmsfordians 1s:
