Great Totham extend their lead in Division Two

Division One

Colchester & E.E. beat Springfield by 6 wickets, chasing 145 – that is all the detail we have so Colchester & E.E. will be fined £10 for late submission of full scorecard.

Galleywood conceded their home match to Sudbury

Division Two

In Division Two Great Totham extended their lead at the top with a 43 run victory at home to West Bergholt. After losing two early wickets a third wicket stand of 72 between Ryan Kennedy (49) and Joe Davis, followed by a fourth wicket stand of 78 between Joe Davis (71) and Tim Logue (31) set the home side up for a big score. Some late cameos then saw a further 70 runs added as Totham were bowled out for 242. Owen Jones (3 for 40) and Mahesh Maheshwar (3 for 31) picking up the bulk of the wickets. In reply, Ed Hance (29), Harvey Borges (45) and Sam Borges (46) saw the visitors well placed at 117 for 2. However, a decisive bowling spell of 5 for 23 from Joe Davis swung the game in the favour of Totham, and despite a late flourish from Sreenath Kamatham (37 from 23 balls) Bergholt were dismissed for 199 with almost seven overs remaining


Just the one completed game in the T30, and that saw another success for Brightlingsea, this time at Kelvedon. Kelvedon batted first and were restricted to 140 for 8 from their 30 overs, of which skipper Mark Cottee (43) top scored. Michael Barrenger (2 for 4 from 4) bowled economically at the beginning of the innings, while Stacey Plummer (2 for 16) also picked up a brace. In reply, Brightlingsea raced to a seven wicket success in 22 overs, with Ollie Hill (59rno) and Jacon Plummer (28no) scoring the majority of the runs.

In the other scheduled game, Coggeshall lost to Witham by concession

Next week, in Division One the top two are both in action away from home. Halstead make the trip to Sudbury, while chasing Witham go to Springfield. Galleywood will hopefully get eleven out for their game with Colchester & E.E.

In Division Two, the top two meet in what is likely to be the title decided, Great Waltham hosting Great Totham. In the other game West Mersea host Great Horkesley & Lexden.

Finally in the T30 there is just the one game, a local derby between Tendring and Great Bentley.

A reminder to all clubs that the league mandated ball (Super County) must be used for all T40 games.
