Witham 3rd v West Mersea Cricket Club TC 2nd on Sat 07 Jul 2018 at 13:00
West Mersea Cricket Club Lost by 9 wickets

Match report An early start and an extended tea to accommodate the England v Sweden World Cup Quarter Final, but nevertheless, it was another defeat for the second team. Batting first Mersea made 137 for 4 from their 40 overs, with Mick Laver (33) and Jerry Morgan (28) composing an opening stand of 68 in 25 overs. Graham Pryke added 14, and an enterprising unbeaten 32 for Elliott Drage saw Mersea reach their tea times total. England won the less than stressful quarter final, while Henry Gayton polished off a whole Water Melon, and Ben Rumble managed to chomp through fifteen chocolate rolls. Maybe too much food was consumed as Witham raced to a nine wicket success in 19 overs, with opener Dean Atkinson scoring an unbeaten 76. Ben Rumble claimed the only wicket to fall, on his way to figures of 1 for 34.
