Club set to unveil new net facility

Rainham welcome former England batsman Rob Key and Essex bowler David Masters to Spring Farm Park to open their new net facility on Saturday (5pm).

The pair will perform the ceremony and carry out some coaching, while also taking part in a Q&A session.

Club members and volunteers worked hard at the sixth annual Cricket Force day to carry out other vital repairs, as Veolia Environment Services provided a skip free of charge.

James Fuller, Rob Holton and Mickey Clifford renovated the clubhouse, which was painted by Rainham Construction College’s Duane Randall, Steve Collins, Billy Pengelly and Seanoy Jones.

Randall said: “The students, Steve and myself enjoyed being able to help out and be part of this community project, decorating the clubhouse on the Natwest Cricket Force weekend.

“Not only is it good for the college to build relationships with the community of Rainham, the students get the chance to gain work experience which will benefit them in the long term.

“Hopefully this is just the start of a budding relationship between the college and Rainham and we will be more than happy to help out with projects in future.”

n Harold Wood’s women began their new Essex League season with a slender defeat against Spencer.

Chloe Brady (26 not out) top scored as Wood were dismissed for 95, with Shona Keaney (20) also contributing with the bat.

Kelly Castle and Zoe Quested nabbed braces early in Spencer’s reply while Portia Blogg (3-12) finished as the pick of the Wood bowling as they fell to a one-wicket defeat with two overs left.

Wood’s men travelled to the Essex coast to take on Frinton, but returned home on the wrong end of a heavy defeat.

Former Essex staffer Merv Westfield hit a century for the home side as they passed the 300-run mark in the 50-over friendly.

Westfield also took a pair of wickets as Wood crashed to 80 all out in reply.
