A grey drizzly day, and it was a testament that four of the five games played on Sunday got finished, despite the intermittent drizzle that was probably annoying, but not enough to take players off the field. In Division One, there are new leaders as Clacton defeated Galleywood by concession. Galleywood fell foul of the rules, in not notifying the Results Secretary by 10pm on the eve of the game so suffered a double whammy of a ten point deduction and £25 fine. Please ensure you are aware of the league rules in the event of concessions. In Division Two, Stebbing opened up their campaign with a 70 run win over previously unbeaten Kelvedon. Down in Division Three, Sudbury made it three from three with a heavy defeat inflicted on Coggeshall at Harefield. Nine man Great Totham were the other winners in Division Three, with a seven wicket win over Boxted, Will Simpson claiming the plaudits in this game bowling seven balls and taking five wickets as the Boxted tail collapsed, while team mate Sam Bowen also claimed a five for. At West Bergholt the hosts had reached 82 for 3, when the groundsman said that enough was enough and the game was abandoned. The clubs have agreed to re-arrange this fixture for the middle of September. In the T20 West Division, Halstead have gone to the top of the division, following an eight wicket success at Witham.
