Chelmsford claim Premier Division victory at Courage Playing Fields

Shenfield slipped to a seven-wicket defeat against Essex League leaders Chelmsford at the Courage Playing Fields.

Put into bat, the hosts made a solid enough start, before slipping from 36-0 to 61-5 as Anthony Hill claimed four wickets.

Tom Ballington hit back with a run-a-ball 58, hitting three sixes and seven fours in an 86-run partnership with Jamie Walton that steadied the ship.

But he was quickly followed back to the pavilion by Jack Plom and Walton was dismissed for 23, before Arshad Ali and Tom Austin (22) helped lift the total to 200 exactly.

Plom struck two early blows with the ball in Chelmsford’s reply, but Dan Hagen and Ben Clifford then put on 138 for the third wicket to put the visitors firmly on top.

Austin ended Clifford’s innings on 84, but Hagen (71 not out) and Jack Sterland (26 not out) saw Chelmsford to their target in the 54th over of their reply.

Jack Kliber’s Shenfield slipped one place to third as a result of the loss, as play reverts to the 50-over format for the next nine weeks.
