Saturday 20th May

Old Chelmsfordians 2nd XI v Rayleigh Fairview 1st XI - Won by 74 runs
Old Chelmsfordians won the toss and elected to field first. A good start with the bat for fairview with an opening partnership of 45 between G Crompton and A Jellett. Wickets started to fall in the middle overs and Fairview were bowled out for 164. G Crompton top scoring with 47 and A Ames with 34 not out. Top bowling from Grainer taking 5-9 off 8 overs and Critchell 2-22.
After tea OC's set out to chase the target, 30-0 off 4 overs before the first wicket fell. Fairview then took regular wickets bowling OC's out for 90 and winning by 74 runs. Cook top scoring with 20 and Critchell 15. Another superb spell of fast bowling from J Lawson taking 5-42 and D Lawson 4-14.

Rayleigh Fairview 2nd XI v Havering Atte Bower 2nd XI - Lost by 7 Wickets.
Another disappointing batting display with the only positives being Steve Page making a solid 37, P Turner 26 and Sakthi 20 leaving Havering 58 overs to reach their target of 146 to win. The bowling was tighter this week but we were unable to take regular wickets, fielding with 10 player for much of the match and then 9 when Sakthi went off injured for a while. The team spirit remains and we continue to bring in new faces. Brijesh made his debut today and was disappointed to get a 3 ball duck. We will fight on for another day and the maiden win is not too far away.

Rayleigh Fairview 1st XI v Broomfield 1st XI - Won by 4 wickets
Broomfield won the toss and elected to Bat first as they were only able to field 9 players due to 2 late drop outs, a good opening partnership between M Turner and J Spindler of 65 got Broomfield off to a good start until it was broken by Tom Webster. Some tight bowling by the Fairview bowlers kept the runs down in the middle overs, only R Lynn coming in and hitting a quickfire 45 the other batsmen to make his mark. Wickets were shared between the Fairview bowlers, J Lawson taking 3-25 of his 10, T Webster 2-25 off 7.1 and A Keating 2-24 off 5. Broomfield were finally bowled out for 161 off 43 overs.
Fairview set out after tea to chase down the target of 162 but things didn't go to plan at the start. Both A Jellett and C McClean falling cheaply to the steady bowling of S Fisher. Adam Keating followed on from where he left off last week, steadying the ship for Fairview contributing 47 before falling to the bowling of N Cowell. Andy Ames and Tom Webster both contributing 32 got Rayleigh Fairview over the line with 5 overs to spare. 164 for 6 at the end of the innings winning by 4 wickets.
A very good start to the season for Fairview, moving on to the trip to Old Chelmsfordians next weekend.

Great Baddow 3rd XI v Rayleigh Fairview 2nd XI - Lost by 196 runs.
Fairview won the toss and elected to bat. Baddow set about punishing some loose bowling on a damp wicket and no wickets fell before drinks. Their opening bat scored 114 but after drinks wickets started to tumble regularly. The pick of the bowlers was A Faires 10-1-53-7 and D Nicholls 10-0-50-2. J Faires continued to impress with the ball and was unlucky not to have taken wickets. Baddow finished on 267/9 off their 45 overs.
Fairview in only Fairview style made a complete hash of the run chase, eventually being skittles for 71 runs. Captain P Turner top scored with 20 runs.
