Trevor Bailey U16 Matchplay Final- 18th September
For the second consecutive year - and only the third time in the club's history- Shenfield Cricket Club have made it to the final of the 2022 U16 Matchplay competition. It will be held on Sunday 18th September at Brentwood CC starting from 12pm.

Facing a strong Maldon CC XI on Sunday in the semi final, Shenfield won the toss and put Maldon into bat. Some excellent bowling kept Maldon to 183 all out. In reply, Shenfield went about the run chase with confidence, 53 off 40 balls from Evan Ackerman and an unbeaten 40 from Max Toolan helped the team to secure the win by 5 wickets.

Shenfield head to the final to face another strong opponent, Harlow CC, who were the victors against Billericay CC in the other semi-final. The final this year will be played at Brentwood CC on Sunday 18th September, commencing at 12 Noon.

All members and supporters of SCC are welcome to come along and cheer on the team, in what promises to be a great game of cricket.

Shenfield Cricket Club — Coach Development Program 2022 – 2023

Message from Colts Chairman- Matt Pryor.

As we approach the end of another fantastic season at Shenfield Cricket Club, planning for the 2023 season begins. This year saw a record number of junior players join our ranks, which put extra pressure on our coaching provisions.

Shenfield CC, as with many other clubs across the country, are looking to increase the number of coaches available to assist in developing the next generation of players.

Essex CC have recently launched a new wave of Coach Development training, which are open to anyone interested in helping the club with coaching. Shenfield CC will reimburse the cost of any of the programs to those who attend.

Further information on the course content can be found by clicking: Core coach briefing or if you would like to discuss any aspect of coaching, please contact me at

Without coaching staff, the club may have limit the number of junior players able to attend coaching sessions in 2023, so I would encourage anyone who is interested in inspiring our next generation of cricketers to follow the link below and book your place.

Tom Arnold
Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner

Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner Last year Tom made an ambitious change from being a wrist spinner to a quick left arm seam bowler. With hard work he progressed quickly, working his way up to Shenfield's second eleven and he finished the 2021 season with 38 wickets, including a match winning 5 for 19.

Tom has rightly been recognized in 2022 by the Essex county setup and has performed well for the Essex Academy side in 20/20 cricket. Tom is also a capable batsman, scoring 350 runs for Shenfield in 2021 and continuing to work hard on his batting.

Shenfield Colt selected for prestigious Banbury Festival

Following four successful trials, Shenfield's Sam Bear has been selected to take part in the Banbury festival this year.

Played at Loughborough University between the 30th July and the 5th August, The Bunbury Festival, formally known as the ECB David English Bunbury Festival, is an annual cricket tournament for the best under-15 boys players in England.
First held in 1987, the ECB took over the running of the tournament in 2018, becoming the first stage in the ECB's Player Pathway to the England Cricket Team. The format will see 56 players divided into four squads and compete in both 50 over and T20 competitions.
As of 2018, 91 of the cricketers who have played at the tournament have gone on to play for England, including national team captains Michael Vaughan, Andrew Flintoff and Joe Root, while 10 of the 11 England players in the 2019 Cricket World Cup final played at the event.
Sam's selection for this prestigious event is a great achievement and it is with much pride that all at Shenfield Cricket Club wish him the very best of luck!

We are sad to report that Peter Robins, former SCC player, has passed away. His brother, Phil, sent the message below.

I’m sad to let you know that my younger brother Peter passed away in Hobart, Tasmania last night. Peter was a Shenfield all-rounder from 1960 until 1970 when he joined us in Australia. He was a deadly in-swing bowler and a very good bat. He also captained the 1st XI. He captained Brentwood School 1st XI with David Acfield as his vice-captain. He played for Pembroke College, Cambridge University and Incogniti. When he came here he played District Cricket for Flinders University in Adelaide and the Australian National University in Canberra.

R.I.P dear brother and mate. July 1946 - June 2022.

A message from our Chairman, Martin Ekers

Dear All,

Colts Membership - Details here - I have pleasure in attaching the 2022 Colts Membership form for you to complete and e mail back to us.

The payment details are also on the form. Please avoid the temptation to ask us if the money has arrived, assume that if it’s left your account, it’s arrived in ours. If you could make separate payments for each sibling it’d be appreciated, it makes reconciliation easier. If you are signing up more than one child, we will issue sibling vouchers again this year for you to spend at the club bar.
Please leave your address and personal details blank unless they have changed, it saves us a lot of effort NOT having to check them!

Many of you will be tempted to e mail back, asking me (or Matt) which nights coaching will be, and I can confirm we are intending to replicate the same structure as last year. This might change (dependent on the number of members and coaches) and anyone inconvenienced by an unexpected change of night will be entitled to a refund, so don’t hold back in that regard.

Whilst I have your attention, can I implore as many of you to join our“100” CLUB as possible?

Full details here - It’s only £1 a month, with quarterly prize draws. Why not join up your partner, your kids and encourage friends and family to join too?
