Leonard George Hall
We are sad to report that Leonard passed away yesterday.
He played for Shenfield in the fifties and sixties, appearing in his last game in 1976. He was an impressive bowler and once took 9 wickets for ten runs!
Our condolences to his family.

A blast from the past!
A great photo has been sent to us from Australia which shows our old SCC pavilion at the top of the field before the verandah was added to the front of it. See it here.
The match was between pupils from Shenfield School and Bentley School in 1948.
You can see what the toilet – an Elsan, not plumbed, was like on our History page here! Photos there of the pavilion were taken after the verandah was added.

Alternative Cricket Tea yesterday.
A massive thank you to both SCC members and local residents for all your food bank donations today.
We filled two car loads and took them down to the Daily Bread Cafe who are doing an amazing job of feeding people locally and were very thankful. See photo here and here is another.

Shenfield Cricket Club is pleased to be hosting an ‘Alternative Cricket Tea’ on Saturday 6th June at the clubhouse.
The Club will be collecting food donations between 10am-12pm, in support of the Daily Bread Cafe, our local food bank. This is aiming to provide help for people within our community who are experiencing a crisis and we’re asking Members, supporters and local residents to donate what they can during these difficult times. All food banks are understandably currently experiencing high demand for food and basic amenities.
Please see full details here.

Coronavirus — the implications for our club
Sadly, the season is in lockdown for the time being and we can only hope that we are in a position to start cricket again later in the summer, but even that may be optimistic.
The problems the club face are many, but it was clear at our first "virtual" (conference call) committee meeting on Monday that one of our biggest challenges, like many "not for profit" community organisations is financial.
To that end, we are asking all our members to voluntarily advance a payment equivalent to 50% of their annual subs payment (more if you wish) to the club.
We are only asking this of you if you are able – as we know personal situations will vary.
Should the season go ahead later in the year, we would offset these monies against the annual membership fees.
This will not guarantee things, but will go some way towards ensuring we all have a club to enjoy in the months and years ahead.

Please transfer advance subs funds to:-

Philip Prior.
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Philip Prior, son of Vernon and Nicola, died in late December. Philip was a highly rated keeper/batsman and a true Shenfield team member. He played for our colts and progressed through the senior teams. One of ‘Pip’s most memorable innings was a hard earned 92 at Horndon on the Hill whilst the rest of the team struggled. Philip was the grandson of our former president, John Burrows and his wife Greta. The whole family, including brother James, were all regulars at the club. We extend our sympathies to all his friends and family.

There will be a service at the Herongate Wood Cemetery at 2pm on Thursday Jan 23rd, followed by a family only cremation. There will be a wake at Bentley Golf Club after that.

There is a tributes and donations page on Love2Donate.
