U16 Matchplay Competition on Sunday (12th September
In only the second time in their 100 year history, Shenfield Cricket Club made it to the final of the U16 Matchplay Competition on Sunday (12th September) and faced a strong Wanstead CC side with the fixture being played at Saffron Walden.
On a near perfect wicket SCC won the toss and put Wanstead into bat. A strong performance from the two openers (Thinod Balage – 101 and Zoraiz Saeed – 68) helped Wanstead finish their innings on 268 for 3.
In reply Shenfield started confidently but losing two wickets in the second over put the team on the back foot and despite a fight back with Will Howard – 84 and Tom Arnold 57 not out Shenfield just could not get back into the game with the team all bowled out for 189 runs.
Despite the loss, the team and those travelling supporters had a fantastic day and celebrated the achievement of a team of mainly 14 and 15 year olds reaching the final in the club’s centenary year! See squad photo here and spectators photo here.

SHENFIELD CC REACH U16 MATCHPLAY FINAL
Shenfield's U15 squad have reached the final of the Trevor Bailey Matchplay Final after a four wicket win against Bishops Stortford CC. Winning the toss, SCC put their opponents into bat who, with three wickets from both Tom Arnold and Freddie Thorne, were limited to 173 in their 40 overs.
There was a nervous start for SCC as the 2 openers fell early, leaving the middle order of Freddie Thorne (21), Nathan Killiea (and Josh Kirby (36) to bring SCC back into contention with Tom Arnold and Daniel Green taking the team over the line with 10 overs left.
The final will be played next Sunday (12th September), at Saffron Walden, against Wanstead CC who overcame Springfield CC in their Semi Final.

Marylebone Cricket Club - Extract from their latest newsletter.
In South Essex, Shenfield CC started a week of centenary celebrations with a match against MCC on Sunday, 22nd August. The Club relied heavily on J. Hobbs, who arrived at the crease at 17 for 2. He scored 89 runs from 52 deliveries, hitting eight fours and seven sixes to help lift MCC to 178 all out. Tom Ballington (four for 51) and Lesiba Ngoepe (four for 65) were Shenfield's standout bowlers.
A fascinating chase ensued. When Ballington was removed, Shenfield were on 66 for 7 following a remarkable spell of four wickets for four runs from 49 balls, as C. da Silva and C. Stephens wrenched the game back in MCC's favour. Shenfield captain Ollie Ekers (45) and Tom Austin (37) gave the hosts hope but, ultimately, they fell 18 runs short.

The U15s have reached the Semi Final of the U16 Trevor Bailey Cup competition after winning their quarter final match against Loughton CC at the De Rougemont Cricket Ground on Sunday (15th August).
Losing the toss, Loughton elected to bat first and were held to 178 all out with Evan Ackerman (7-32-3), Adam Pryor (7-23-2) and Daniel Green (5-19-2) the pick of the bowlers. Both Shenfield openers opened steadily, building what would be a great foundation to reach their target of 179 in the 29th over with William Howard finishing on 101 off 85 balls.
The Semi Final against Bishops Stortford CC will be played this Sunday (22nd August) again at the De Rougemont Cricket Ground with the game commencing at 12 Noon. Everyone is welcome to come and support the team.
