Shenfield's Young Superstars -
Alan Jones, our young opener, played a big part in winning the ECB U17 Cup for Essex against Lancashire on Sunday after getting a big century in the Semi Final to beat Somerset last week.
Jack Plom took three wickets for England in the first innings of the test match against South Africa at Scarborough on Sunday.

Matt Salisbury
Much as we really miss Matt, we are delighted for him that he has has penned a contract with Durham CCC until the end of the 2020 season after making a big impression while on loan at the Club. See what's on Durham's website.
5th July 2018
Yesterday's ECB 50+ County Championship match — Essex v Kent at SCC.
Essex were comfortable winners of the Wasim Raja Trophy, beating Kent by 6 wickets with 19.3 overs to spare.
Fayyaz and Arshad bowled tight spells, and Tim Smith took 4-6, to deservedly win the MOM award from sponsors Solution Recruitment.
The meagre total was quickly achieved with Neil Burns scoring a quickfire 44 in 31 balls.
Group winners Essex now move forward to the National knock out stages with a home draw on July 29th, the venue being Billericay or Brentwood CC.
Here is a photo of the Essex squad.
4th July 2018
Shenfield CC will be hosting an historic fixture between the MCC and a Shenfield High School Academy team on Sunday July 8th.
The game will commence at 11:30 and finish at approximately 6pm.
SHS is the first non-selective State School to have a fixture with the MCC and hopefully if all goes well it could be an annual event.
The close relationship shared between the club and the school has produced some outstanding cricket players in recent years with many coming through the Colts section and now regularly playing in the club's senior sides.
Please come along and support the fixture – spectators would be much appreciated.
On what promises to be a brilliant day, all Shenfield Colts and their families as well as other members and acquaintances are welcome to come and watch the game, which promises to produce some excellent cricket for everyone to see!!!
The club's bar will be open and a BBQ will be offering food throughout the day.

All Stars Visitor!
Our All Stars programme on Friday had a very special VIP visit....TWINKLE, the All Stars mascot came down to Shenfield Cricket Club to check on all of our new Shenfield CC All Stars.
Joining TWINKLE was our very own Jack Plom, who not only regularly features in the Shenfield first XI but also represents Essex and England in their respective U19 squads.
Everyone agreed with both TWINKLE and Jack, that there is one really important rule that every All Star has to follow.................to HAVE FUN!!!
Here are some lovely photos.
14th June 2018
It has been a sensational week for all three of Shenfield's county stars!
A century for Aaron Beard, a six wicket haul for Jack Plom, both for Essex 2nd XI, and a starring role for Matt Salisbury with both bat and ball in an amazing Durham comeback in the County Championship.
Aaron coming in at no 7 with Essex 50-5 in their first innings against Glamorgan at Billericay scored 103 in 211 balls in a 6th wicket partnership of 176 to give Essex a first innings lead of 159. Earlier in the same game Jack took 6-33 off 13 overs to help reduce Glamorgan to 145 all out. The game continues today (Thursday).
At Chester-le-Street, Durham were all out for 96 in their first innings, but Matt, on Durham County Championship debut, then took 3 useful Derbyshire wickets in their first innings of 205. At 159-7 in their second innings Durham were just 50 ahead and staring defeat in the face but 8th and 9th wicket partnerships of 104 and 99 changed things dramatically. Coming in at number 10 Matt played an innings of Boycott proportions taking 25 runs off 147 deliveries (much of it against the second new ball facing Kolpak South Africans Viljoen and Olivier) whilst his batting partner completed a crucial century. He then followed up with four top wickets to help skittle a demoralised Derby side out for 172 and win the game by 95 runs. Matts match figures finished at 38-5-140-7.
Here's a photo.

Our Chairman
Shenfield Cricket Club regrets to announce the resignation of its Chairman, Andrew Maxwell.
Since first becoming Chairman in December 2016, Andrew has shown enormous enthusiasm, energy and dedication and has had to face some enormous challenges during an extremely difficult period for the Club and we all owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all he has done on the Club’s behalf.
The Committee is extremely sorry that he has felt it necessary to stand down but respects his views and his decision.
Martin Ekers was voted in by the Committee as Acting Chairman until the AGM.

On Monday we had a record number of current or former Shenfield players in County 2nd XI sides, six players in all! That is surely a first.
Appearing for Essex CCC v Hampshire in a Second XI Trophy one-day match at Billericay, were Jack Plom, Aaron Beard and Mitch Edwards, Mitch starring with a vital 71 for the home side. At the other end of the country Matt Salisbury featured for Durham CCC against Northants at the Riverside Stadium in Chester-le-Street whilst our former (and hopefully to return!) wicketkeeper-batsman Jack Potticary was in the Northants side.
All except Jack Potticary are currently featuring in three-day Second XI Championship matches at the same venues.
