Mid-Essex League club make trip to struggling Broomfield on Saturday before having fun day on the Sunday

Havering-atte-Bower have another big weekend and will be aiming to keep up their impressive run in the Mid-Essex League Division Three.

The Broxhill Road outfit make the trip to struggling Broomfield firsts who have lost five of their nine games in the league this season.

James Walker’s men will travel with confidence after winning by one wicket at Woodham Mortimer last Saturday chasing down 133.

If they can achieve more success at Broomfield, it will make the club’s fun day on Sunday even better.

Everybody is welcome to attend the event at Broxhill Road, which starts at 12pm and runs until 5pm.

The club will be putting on lots of fun activities with over 20 stalls, plenty of refreshments, bouncy castles and a BBQ available.

Last weekend proved to be another excellent one for Havering as they earned a third successive victory in Division Three.

The hosts could only limp to 132-8 off their 45 overs and Tom Mitchell scored a breezy 24 to put Walker’s men on the front foot.

Mortimer hit back, however, but Michael Roe (19) and Luke Dyerson (20) helped Havering remain on course for victory.

Again the home team fought back and it was left in the end to first team debutant Jake Southam to ensure the Broxhill Road club got over the line.

Southam finished unbeaten on 19 as Havering triumphed by one wicket to stay third in the table.

The following day Havering held a match in memory of the late Andrew Dent which saw a Chairman’s XI take on a President’s XI.

Emma Honey (5-17) shone for the Chairman’s XI as they were made to field first, but 35 from Beechey helped the President’s XI reach 177.

Although the Chairman’s XI got off to a solid start, they were unable to keep up with the run rate and finished 30 runs short of victory as Mitchell Walker impressed with the ball along with Frankie Aino.
