NEW! SCC Fantasy Cricket League - This season Will Appleton will be running a Fantasy Cricket League covering all 1st to 4th XI league matches. The league will be running mainly to raise funds for the club which, of course, are always needed. As a club we have many fantastic team results and excellent individual performances week after week and this friendly and fun competition can really draw people's attention as to how teams and individuals are performing right across the club.
The Fantasy League is open to anyone and everyone so we encourage players right across the club to not only sign up but encourage family and friends to join in and follow the club as well. The more people who play, the more we raise (and the bigger the prize pool).
Here is a link to the website where you can register your team and make unlimited changes before the season gets under way on May 7th. Once you have registered, please pass monies to Steven Roach behind the bar.
The link on the main menu of this website to the Fantasy League will remain throughout the season.
In case of any queries please feel free to email Will Appleton at williamappleton01@gmail.com
Thank you for your support and best of luck!

Ernie Barker - Sadly, we heard today he passed away on Monday 28th March, age 99. Ernie was the club's groundsman for more than 20 years and only retired when he was 85!
Previously he was full-time groundsman at Valentine's Park, Ilford, where Essex County matches were played on a regular basis for County week and during that period he twice won the Evening Standard Award for best cricket wicket outside of the main County Grounds.
After retiring from Ilford Cricket Club at 65 he worked for Brentwood Council looking after the Warley Park cricket pitch where he taught our present groundsman, Chris Boniface, how to maintain a cricket square, whilst also maintaining Shenfield's square and Brentwood's for a while.
Ernie also used to run the Knights Athletic Football Club in the Brentwood Sunday League during the 1960/70's.
His funeral will be held at Bentley Crematorium on Wednesday 13th April at 1pm.

A Message from our Chairman, Paul Carter, re the New Nets - After a number of years of protracted negotiations an agreement has been reached between Shenfield Cricket Club and Brentwood Borough Council. This agreement will enable the club to replace and improve the current nets to provide a high quality, safe environment for training/practice to happen.
The agreement means there has to be some regularisation of activities. SCC will control and manage the Car Park and will be responsible for the repairs and maintenance of this area. The storage containers needed remedial external works to keep them in reasonable decorative and structural condition. This has been done already thanks to those that helped out at the recent working party. The club also need to keep the pavilion in good order, which we already do, but is now part of the stipulations within the agreement.
A big thank you to all those that have been involved over this period, especially Stuart Barnes, David Carter and Greg Cooper who have given up considerable time and effort and produced plans and sought legal opinions at their own expense.

HELP WANTED! - This year's working party/spring-clean will be on 19th March from 09:30. Please see Guy's flyer for useful equipment you might be able to bring and don't forget your gardening gloves! Also note that in addition to all the usual chores necessary to get our pavilion and ground fit for the season, we have a couple of big jobs to do - painting containers and clearing the undergrowth.
Even if you can only spare an hour or two that would help.
