U16 Matchplay Final v Loughton - This will now take place on Saturday 17th September, 11am start at Billericay CC.
This is the match that should have been played at The Essex County Ground on 4th September, but due to an administrative error by the organisers had to be deferred and played at a different venue.
Naturally, the lads were very disappointed not to play at the ECG, so let's please cheer them up a bit by providing a large contingent of supporters at Billericay.
4th September 2016
Congratulations to our 2nd and 4th XIs - The 2nd XI ended top of Division One, a clear 30 points above their nearest rivals. Next season they will retake their place in the 2nd XI Premier Division.
The 4th XI retained their place in the 4th XI Premier West Division, a Division which was part of a re-arrangement this season and put them up against much stronger teams than previously.
The 2017 season will therefore see all four teams in Premier Divisions.
Photos of all four teams are available from the 2016 Gallery.

Very Upsetting News re the U16 Matchplay Final due to be played on Sunday at The County Ground - There has been an "administrative error" at the ECB which effectively means it is unlikely we will be playing this match on Sunday and not at the County Ground either.
