- Anne Robinson - We were very sorry to hear that Anne has passed away. Older members of the club will remember her and her husband, Keith, who was a popular SCC Sunday captain from 1963 – 1973, and their son, Max, a keen player. Our sincere condolences to Max and the rest of the family.
There is a photo on the website of Anne and Keith together.

- Matt Salisbury - Congratulations to Matt who has been offered, and has accepted, a two year contract with Essex CCC commencing 1st October 2013.
Matt is the first Shenfield player to be signed up by Essex. He has come up through the ranks, starting in our Colts section, then our Senior 3rd XI from 2005 when he was only twelve! He has played for the 1st XI for the last six years.
He is currently in his final year at University, so won't be able to join the squad for all their pre-season activities, and will no doubt continue to train with Cambridge MCCU during the winter and play for them during the early season 2014.
He has not yet been selected for the Essex 1st XI although he was 12th man at their games at the Ageas Bowl and the Bristol County Ground late in the 2013 season. He featured in the majority of Essex 2nd XI games in 2013, bowling 160 overs and taking 24 Championship wickets at an average of 21.62. A first XI debut remains a major target for next season.

- Michael Wright - In recognition of his County Lifetime Acheiver award, Michael was invited to attend the NatWest National OSCAs which were held yesterday at Lord's. The event was hosted by Jonathan Agnew and was attended by numerous cricketing legends, so he had a very interesting, enjoyable time and it closed with entertainment by the Duckworth Lewis method band!
Unfortunately, there are no photos from yesterday, but there are from the recent OSCAs event at the County Ground.

- It was not to be - Yesterday was crunch day, with the possibility of the 1st XI winning the Championship if they beat Wanstead. It started well, with Stuart Borman and Martin Spicer providing the team with a full English breakfast prior to departure - thanks, chaps! Shenfield won the toss and elected to bat, but never recovered from losing a wicket first ball of the innings and were out for a disappointing 95 in only 26 overs. Wanstead, despite losing an early wicket easily reached the target in 27 overs. Congratulations to Wanstead, who proved to be far superior on the day.
A sad day for Jack Kliber and his team, but they are to be congratulated on a generally excellent season, maintaining 3rd position.
