Sunday saw a cold and damp autumn day, which was probably not conducive to cricket, as the 2017 season comes to its inevitable close, with results in three of the five games played. In Division One Great Horkesley & Lexden ended a difficult season with a 64 run victory over fellow strugglers Eight Ash Green, condemning the Green to bottom place. Mistley were going well against championship chasing Wivenhoe when the rain hit at New Road. In Division Three, Springfield ended the season as Runners Up with their twelfth victory of the season, by defeating Chappel & Wakes Colne second string. In Division Four, Real Oddies are Runners Up as they beat the rain to complete a nine wicket victory over Great Braxted and Tiptree, while Coggeshall’s hopes were dashed by the rain and a waterlogged pitch at home to champions Braintree. Bowlers were on top this weekend with the stand out performance from Luke Conway of Great Horkesley & Lexden who claimed 6 for 27, including a hat trick against Eight Ash Green. Springfield’s Alan Warley also claimed a fivefor, returning 5 for 37 in his sides win over Chappel & Wakes Colne seconds.
