Colchester & East Essex Cricket Club
Colchester , ESS
Tomorrow (29/06) Saturday: First XI versus Woodford Wells.
12:30 start; 50 overs; coloured clothing; pink ball; an exciting format.
It was great to see a few Col U fans come along last week to watch some awesome cricket where we beat Monte Panaser's Shenfield. The standard is very high and the chicken & bacon pies in our pop up cafe are delightful. ...and did I mention beer is available (note 60 + ales at forthcoming beer festival)? With no footie for a few weeks, it's a great alternative to shopping.

Was great to see a fair number of U's fans at yesterday's cricket, and what entertainment they had.. Colchester smashed 316 in 50 overs with 16 year old opener Joe MacGregor hitting 111. It might be worth putting a quid on him one day playing for England.
But star performer was Grenadian Denson Narayan who smashed 113 not out in 59 balls having scored just 2 of his first twelve. His second 50 came in just 21 balls and 14 minutes. In reply, Woodford Wells were well on target until paceman Harry McBreaty (4/40) and leg-spinner MacGregor (3/14) ripped the heart out of their batting to see them fall 115 runs short.. With Monte Panaser's Shenfield losing, Colchester & EE go top of the league. Well worth watching.

16 year old opener Joe MacGregor scored 111 yesterday, 131 today versus Clacton.
Colchester now top of SNEL Division One (Saturday) and the North Essex League Top Division (Sunday). Agree, shame our football club is not so dominant.
