- Chairmen's Day and Race Night (27th August) round‑up:
What a wonderful day!
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those Club members, Players, Colts and Colt parents, SCC supporters and guests
for a magnificent fundraising effort.
They may say the weather makes the occasion, it certainly helped but our fabulous and loyal club supporters made the day
[and the evening] a huge success.
All this, underpinned by our strong club spirit and sense of community across every age group brought the club together
in such a brilliant way!!
There were so many contributions from all quarters [and we apologise for not listing everyone];
the Scouts providing the marquee [thank you] and Martin Spicer and his band of helpers quickly setting it up in no time,
Bill Hindley erecting a new flagpole complete with a golden cockerel and weathervane gives our club a wonderful uniqueness,
and special thanks goes to the tea ladies under Jo Ballington's guidance - this was a centrepiece of excellence.
The cricket matches could not have been closer, played under a blazing sun in "Australian-like conditions" with both games
ending in very tense finishes to the growing crowd's delight. Following a brief post-match presentation and thanks to the players and guest players,
our supporters soon filled the pavilion for the much anticipated Race Night. This proved a real winner under the stewardship of Martin Ekers, ably supported by Stuart Borman
and many volunteers on the night - we couldn't have done it without you and the race sponsors, owners, jockeys, staff and energetic participation from everyone!
We have winnings to distribute to the following lucky stakeholders:
We do not have a confirmed total fund raising amount just yet as monies are still to be aggregated from various other sources: the Colts BBQ £80 [Garry and Martin],
raffle money from a kindly donated, autographed bat £292, Club cash gift on the night circa £60 and the Race Night - a staggering £5,500!!
This has been the best fund raising effort to date; many thanks and well done.
Please now take time out to relax before "Sal's Rock and Roll show" on the 9th September followed by the club's Annual Dinner and Dance on the 6th October
- details on the website.

Congratulations to them on getting through to the Semi Finals.
The Semi Finals and the Final will be played at Billericay CC on Sunday, 10th September. The start time is still TBC, but will be posted here when known.

- Inaugural Chairmen’s Day:
This successful event, held yesterday, saw two T20 matches with mixed teams - 1sts & 2nd XIs in one match and and 3rds,4ths & 5ths in another.
It brought all sections of the club together and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
After the matches there was a Race Night which generated great interest and participation from all age groups and a much needed boost to our bank balance.
Here are a few photos.
- 22nd August 2017
- Our U19s are into the Quarter‑Finals:
They will be playing at Home v Brentwood on Monday 28th August.
This T20 match starts at 2pm. Supporters welcome - there will be a BBQ!
- 18th August 2017
- Race Night and Club Matches, 27th August:
This is our biggest, and probably last opportunity before the season closes to bring the club together across all memberships and ages.
There will be two T20 games. The first, starting at 14:00 will comprise players from the 5ths, 4ths, 3rds and older Colts.
There will be a wonderful tea before the second match, starting at 16:30, with players from 1sts, 2nds and guest players.
There should be a wonderful atmosphere.
The cricket will be followed with a brilliant, fun evening of horse racing.
After a lot of hard work by very few people, all nine races are sold out, and races sponsored.
All we need now is a good turnout and for people to place their bets.
If horse racing isn't your thing, then no worries - we can all still contribute to the day/evening and the prosperity of the club by:
making a donation, backing a horse or jockey or just come along on the day if only for a few hours.
We do want to see the Senior Members, i.e. VPs and Life VPs of the club more regularly than the luncheons. Our club can only prosper with active support across all memberships, and,
as senior members, your visibility is important in consolidating our supportive culture and therefore welcome your participation and contribution.

- The Under 9s are amazing:
They will play in the Cup Final at Bentley CC on 3rd September.
The Spitfires squad still have two league fixtures to play, but are unbeaten so far.
With the Hurricanes unbeaten and having already won their league, the treble of titles is still a possibility.
The Under 13s are also playing in a Final on the same day!
All supporters welcome.
- 7th August 2017
- England manager at the double:
Shenfield CC's Life VP & England Counties Manager, Peter Rider, completed a notable double on Friday, when England Counties beat Australia 50+
in the inaugural 50/50 over Veterans International, played at Welwyn Garden City.
The victorious England side recently won the Cape Town Tournament Final at Newlands by 6 wickets, and repeated the victory by the same margin on Friday.
England Counties 50+ now set their sights on the 2018 International 6 nation Competition in Sydney, and are looking for sponsors.

- Not long to go now until our Race Night on 27th August:
This is a major, highly enjoyable fund-raising event.
We are looking for a sponsor for each of the 9 races, and although we have some commitments, we need a few more. If you, your company,
or you know of someone who would be interested, please contact Stuart Borman or Steve Roach promptly so any advertisement
can be included in the programme being printed very soon.
Equally importantly, we will need 8 Horse owners and 8 jockeys for each of the nine races.
Each winning owner will receive a bottle of bubbly along with his winnings, and a photo opportunity with the race sponsor beckons!
More details, including all the race times and the horses' names available here.

- Shenfield Village Sign:
Today saw the launch of the Shenfield Village Sign depicting 2000 years of Shenfield’s history ,from Roman times through to the Crossrail Elizabeth Line. It was commissioned by The Shenfield Environmental Partnership.
Pupils at Shenfield St Mary’s C of E School and Shenfield High School researched the history and were asked for their ideas on design and what should be depicted.
Both schools wanted Shenfield Cricket Club to be part of the design, which is why you can see stumps, bat and ball! Our Chairman, Andrew Maxwell, and his wife Linda were at the launch, along with a number of local dignitaries.
You will see the sign on the grass verge between Oliver Road and Holmwood Avenue.
Here’s a photo.
