Colts Sides Make Positive Start To 2017 Season

9 months ago By Paul Middlemiss

Club's juniors have completed 24 matches already this Year

Six of Upminster's junior sides have been in action already this season and they have picked up many positive results to date.

The busiest side so far has been the U9s, who have already played six games. They have won two of their three matches in the Don Coates Trophy and their win over Buckhurst Hill included a hattrick for Michael Pedrick. The Team have also won their only Havering League game to date, with a good performance against Goresbrook. The U9s are next in action this Sunday when they face Gidea Park and Romford in a Havering League encounter

The U10s are playing a year above themselves in the U11 Havering League. The Team have put in two very good performances before losing both games by narrow margins to Gidea Park and Ardleigh Green.

With two wins from three, the U11s have a good chance of progressing in the Haydn Davies Trophy. After an early season defeat to Loughton the side bounced back to beat West Essex before beating Walthamstow by concession. They have also picked up a Havering League win over Ardleigh Green. The Team are next in action tomorrow (Wednesday 14th) when they visit Goresbrook in the Havering League.

The U12s still have the chance to progress in the Peter Coe Cup after two wins and two losses in their games so far. Rainham and Ilford have been beaten thanks to excellent team performances, but defeats against Woodford Wells and Goresbrook mean Sunday's game against Buckhurst Hill at Coopers is a must win encounter.

The U13s completed their first competitive game of the season on Sunday and they did so in style with a 117 run win over Buckhurst Hill in the Len Stentiford Cup. They visit Gidea Park this Sunday in the Havering League.

Results have been mixed so far for the U15s but there have been a number of positive performances. They started the season with an excellent win over Bancroft Lions in the Cox and Kings Cup, but narrowly lost out to Newham in the same competition. They were also beaten by slim margins by Goresbrook in the National Cup and Hornchurch in the Havering League. Their next game is against Rainham, in the Havering League, on 25th June.

The Matchplay side are yet to start their campaign, but they will be busy in July as they play three of their four group games, starting with a trip to Goresbrook on 9th July and then a visit to Brentwood on 23rd.

Most of the club's junior fixtures are listed on the club's PlayCricket site.
