Copford U-14’s fall to first home defeat of season

For the second time in a month Copford U-14’s went down to defeat against Coggeshall, this time by the narrower margin of 25 runs as they never really threatened to overcome the visitors total of 134 for 7. The damage was done by a healthy start from the Coggeshall’s’ opening partnership of Will Wright and Ben Speakman, who put on 62 in a brisk and relatively untroubled manner.  Peter Read pegged them back with figures of 2-22, but the stand out bowler for Copford was Louis Clements, who helped himself to a couple of wickets for a meagre ten runs in four tight overs. Max Shirley got a wicket with his first ball and Nittin Kesavan was also amongst the wickets in his debut for the club. Copford’s prospects of chasing down a total of 134 declined considerably with the early loss of Ashwin Chavakula and Ollie Hambleton, both victims of James Raines; and then Josh Colairo for seven.  His dismissal brought together Jack Kelly and Josh Mowat who batted steadily to repair some of the damage, putting on 57 between them.  Jack top scored with 27, and Josh finished undefeated on 25, whilst Praneesh Kathirvel was run out for 12 off the final ball. By then the outcome had already been decided with Copford always down on the run rate required. The other telling statistic was the number of extras, mainly wides, conceded by Copford in the field, 36 in 20 overs, more than the 25 runs that Coggeshall won the game by. Coggeshall 134 -7 beat Copford 109-5 by 25 runs

Hornet makes contact after flying the nest

Hello Ivan & Petra, As I'm sure you've realised, Austin isn't at Copford, much to his disappointment I may add, he always speaks very proudly about his old CC. He has joined Woolpit CC which is just Geographically best for us as we are living over in Chevington. (Just near the Greyhound pub you prob know it) Hopefully the two teams meet at sometime. Anyway it just remains for me to say a big thank you to you and the guys at Copford, for encouraging Austin and making his time at the club so memorable. He loves cricket all the more for his positive experience with you. All the best, Rob Dennis.

U14`s v Witham Sunday 8th May

Match report:- It was good to see a winning start for our boys yesterday at home against Witham in the glorious sunshine and here is the match report:-  Copford won the toss and decided to take the new ball and opened with Hamish ( and Elise ( who both bowled a very tidy line without success to keep the score down after 4 overs.  The first bowling change saw Elliott( and Josh Mowat( come on and again some good line and length bowling kept the score to around 5-6 an over but no breakthrough as the Witham openers put on 50 for the first wicket.  Next bowling change saw Josh Colairo ( and Peter Reid ( enter the attack and by this stage the openers were beginning to score more freely, helped by some ill-discipline in the field and the same problem with too many extras, although it was very hot so the fielding understandable began to suffer slightly. Josh took out the opener with a full toss that hit the opener`s toes so he had to retire hurt.  Onto the last bowling change and Oliver ( and Louis ( came on and both bowled very well and Louis grabbed the first wicket with some great bowling having the other opener caught well by Josh C for 49, a key breakthrough. Then Oliver H followed up with a bowled wicket and by the end Witham reached 143 for 3 off their 20 overs. So with just over 7 an over needed a good solid start was required, however their opening quick bowler, who is a District/County player proofed too good for our opening 3 batsman( Josh C, Jack and Adwaith), as all 3 were bowled
