Victory on Saturday against second positioned Ardleigh means that Earls Colne CC will be promoted to division 2 of the NECL Piri Piri league next season. Well done to all involved.
A half century from Daryl Sleeman and 46 from Chintesh Patel saw Colne to a solid start. After faltering in mid innings, Josh Wilkinson and Lee Paris shared a decent partnership of exactly 50 towards the end to ensure a healthy total was posted. 198 -7.
Ardleigh started strongly with a 90+ partnership for the second wicket, but finally succumbed for 160. Three wickets for David Holme. Earls Colne win by 38 runs.

This match report does not do the performance justice!!! This was an excellent team effort against a very good Ardleigh side… In future I would like to volunteer to write these again, I have served my ban and promise not be rude about other teams (sorry wivenhoe) and accept i probably shouldnt use the really bad swear word on an open forum…
Good season, promotion and shield winners… Well done all round.
