Congratulations to and thanks from Shenfield High School. - Garry Sapsford says Shenfield High School is very grateful to Shenfield CC for hosting 3 Essex Schools Cricket finals this September. Shenfield High made each of these finals, winning the U19 final on the last ball v Newham College. SCC youngsters Alex Rickenbach, George Pratt and Haris Mahmood were fundamental to the dramatic win with 5 SCC players in total representing the school.
The U13 girls final was a local derby between Shenfield and St Martins with SHS winning by 30 runs with SCC's Imogen Southcott awarded Player of the Match. These Shenfield girls were also crowned National Schools Champions at Wormsley CC this week in a remarkable few days for the school's cricket teams.
The last Essex Schools final will feature Shenfield's U15 girls against St Angela's on Monday,22nd. Good luck in completing a county treble girls!

Congratulations to the Under 9s who won the play offs today beating Bentley and then Hutton in the final - The lads deserve to look so happy! Here's what spectator Allan Salisbury had to say about the final - "It was a joy to watch. The Shenfield team were a cut above the opposition and deservedly won the trophy. Hutton were outplayed with bat and ball. Whilst in the field our boys were thoroughly focused on the game, backed up each other, caught well, threw well and hit the stumps two or three times to run-out the opposition batsmen. Just to see boys of that age walking in whilst fielding, watching and concentrating on the game and being alert to every game situation is very pleasing. They looked a really good team.
Our bowlers and fielders took wickets at regular intervals, stifling any opportunity for Hutton to build a total. When batting, our upper order in particular hit some fine shots, including several to the boundary.
Gary Griffin and team have obviously got the players very well drilled: they are a credit to him and to the club. Also bearing in mind that several of the boys are only u8s the future looks rosy for Shenfield colts!
I thoroughly enjoyed my morning and was very proud to support our young players."
