Weekend Round-up 27 and 28 June
Soul Legend visits Wanstead
Chelmsford administered an almighty hiding to the Herons at Overton Drive, leaving the lads just holding on at the top of the league. The visitors' opening bowler,* who may or may not know much about history, snared schoolteacher John Chambers with the first ball of the match and hummed "What a Wonderful World" for the rest of the day.
Wanstead 2s, whose win at Colchester was a close-run race, are not far off the top of their league.
The thirds lost an even closer race to bottom team Brentwood, with the 4s being brushed aside by Chelmsford. While the 5th team clung on to the less glorious end of a draw, the 6th team put up a great show.
Wanstead Ladies had the misfortune of not playing their league game because their opposition failed to turn out.
