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.

Colts - Colts' Chariman, Stuart Barnes says "While it was sad to say goodbye to the four trophies Shenfield Colts won in 2013, we say hello to two new ones in 2014 at U9 and U11! Many congratulations to Garry Griffin and his U9 & U11 teams for doing so well this season."

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."
