2016 Season Summary

Commentary

The 2016 season proved rather successful for the Cavaliers, enjoying a good second season in the Two Counties Championship and a 'better than usual' season in the NECL. The tour side also won a T20 tournament in Derbyshire!

The Saturday XI played very well, challenging for the title & remaining unbeaten until August. The Sunday side started with impressive victories against Kirby & eventual Champions Halstead on their way to claiming five wins (an impressive haul given recent Sunday seasons), but heavy losses were sadly regular. The midweek XI endured a poor season, going without a win all season.

The Cavaliers had a fine year with the bat, including setting new club records against Witham for highest team total, highest 2nd wicket partnership and biggest winning margin. That game included centuries for Darren Dellar (124) and Fowad Murtaza (141). There was also a century for Martin Vinter (109) in the first NECL game of the season against Kirby. The Cavs also had three bowlers manage 5-fers to match the three centurions, with N Hussain (three 5-fers, with a best of 7-32), Neville Davidson (two 5-fers, including his first for the club. best 5-15), and Raouf Rasheed (6-27) all getting their names on the 'honours board'. Neville's enthusiasm in the field also saw him hold onto an impressive 12 catches during 2016, while Dan Young won the NECL wicket keeping award.

2015 Season Summary

Commentary

The Cavaliers 2015 season saw the club withdraw the 2nd XI from the Sunday league and enter a Saturday XI into the Two Counties Championship instead. The tour proved a success, with new players attending and all four games being played!

The midweek and Saturday sides were consistently competitive, with the Saturday XI putting in some impressive performances with the bat and ball at times during their debut season in the Two Counties Championship. The Sunday XI struggled somewhat after a player exodus limited resources, but some competitive displays in the middle of the season helped maintain some pride.

Individually, Noman Hussain had an annus mirabilis with the ball, claiming 66 wickets to surpass Tim Berry’s record. Noman claimed four 5-fers, with a best of 7-26, but he wasn’t alone in reaching the Cavaliers ‘honours board’ as Jon Walton (6-19), Puneet Kalra (5-7), Karl Hemstedt (5-10), Dan Smith (5-13) and Sid Pillalamarri (5-62) all claimed 5 wicket hauls. With the bat, the Cavaliers had six batsmen pass the 300 run mark, with Darren Dellar and Noman Jalib both passing 500 – Darren also scoring the first Cavaliers century for two years at West Mersea. The fielding stats saw Dan Young pass 50 wicketkeeping dismissals for 2015.

2014 Season Summary

Commentary

Cavaliers 2014 season was severely impacted by a large number of clubs withdrawing from the higher divisions leading the First XI to be promoted and all divisions to be formed with eight teams. With just 14 fixtures scheduled everyone was praying for a dry summer and although the weather was largely warm and sunny the rain, when it came, arrived at the weekend. In particular tour was once again a wash out, firmly cementing the reputation of the Spring Bank Holiday for rain.

In the matches that were played the First XI consistently competed with the bigger clubs and claimed historic scalps beating Halstead and Maldon at the Rugby Club. Rarely was the team overwhelmed in the fashion experienced last time we played in Division 1. The Second XI were firmly placed in mid-table, winning about half the games played.

Individual performances of note were Justin Rishworth's 5 wickets against Halstead and Dave Howell's 6-21 both in winning causes, with Dan Smith and Dave the only bowlers to reach 20 wickets. Ed Parry and Raj Anandraj were both promoted to open the batting in the First XI and consistently got us off to a good start. Sid Pillalamarri and Zubair Ahmed were the leading batsmen in the second XI but only three batsmen totalled 300 runs or more.

2013 Season Summary

Commentary

The 2013 season brought a welcome relief from the wet weather and cancellations experienced in 2012. Only a few matches were cancelled due to the weather and after a late spring the weather from June was perfect for cricket with clear skies but moderate temperatures.

The highlight of the early part of the season was a very successful tour where we finally won back the Paris Bails trophy by beating Elton on their own patch. Some crafty work before the game set the scene for Stuart and Jon to blow away the Elton batting and make it an easy job for the batsmen.

In the league both teams continued to struggle to put runs on the board but good bowling and fielding kept us in many games. Dan Smith and Phil Sadler were the most successful batsmen. Dan Young surprised many with his much improved keeping and we were pleased to see Phil Wolski on a regular basis after he was unfortunately forced to retire from playing. Stuart was very unlucky to miss out on the Division bowling title once again being outdone by the league moving the goalposts. Three bowlers achieved 6 wicket hauls (Stuart 6-8 vs Ramblers away, Phil 6-31 vs Ramblers home and Justin 6-21 vs Purleigh).

Despite winning only half the scheduled games, in a league truncated by late drop outs, the First XI were placed 3rd at the end of the season and will therefore play in Division 1 in 2014. The Second XI managed to recruit a good new group of players but suffered having lost some stronger players such as Deji, Steve Brett and Alex Wisbey. Whenever they put up a decent score they were able to compete and were unfortunate to finish in bottom place in Division 4.

2012 Season Summary

Commentary

The 2012 season will long be remembered as the wet year with many pitches remaining water logged until July. On several occassions the weather at the weekend was dry but the weather in the week was so poor that the groundsmen had not been able to prepare a playable wicket. Our home games were not too badly affected thanks to the free draining conditions at the rugby club and the positive attitude of Rodney the groundsman. The First XI only played ten matches all summer and the Second XI only managed twelve.

After a tough season in Division 1 the First XI found that Division 2 was also challenging with rising clubs like Springfield and High Easter among the opposition. Indeed we only won 3 games but the chaos of the cancellations placed us in mid-table. The Second XI lost a third of their matches and won half the remainder to finish mid-table.

One highlight of the year was the trip to Ardleigh in the Cup with our usual blend of cup players to find the wicket in a terrible state due to a mechanical failure leaving oil on the pitch. At tea our score of 147 was far from being a banker but Stuart bowled a remarkable spell to take 6 wickets for 9 runs and with the back broken Dave Howell helped him wrap up with 4-3!

2011 Season Summary

Commentary

The 2011 season saw the First XI in Division 1 with the big clubs for the first time. Although this meant we had our highest ever finish it was probably the least enjoyable season in recent Cavaliers history as we came down to earth with a bump after a number of winning seasons.

Results started OK with a victory over fellow promotion club Purleigh in a low scoring affair at their ground but we then suffered a heavy defeat at Witham. On a hot day we chased quite a lot of leather and were nearly skittled but for a brave middle order counter attack from Amir and Jon R. A Saturday fixture against Little Baddow had to be conceded due to availability of players and we suffered a heavy defeat against Bocking but fought back to push Great Bromley close the following week. This raised confidence levels and we won our next home match against Little Bardfield thanks to 69 from Justin.

Mid season victories over Purleigh and Little Baddow raised some hopes but from there on the wheels came off with weak Cavaliers sides failing to compete against the stronger sides.

Meanwhile the Second XI were having their own difficulties in Division 4. Early season wins against Ipswich and Chappel (thanks to a captain's century from Vinnie) and a mid-season tight win against Lexden were the only successes as the batting was too dependant upon the skipper.

The club lost all it's games after 24th July which is probably why the season has such bad memories for many.

Early season hot and sunny weather gave way to a wetter than usual June, July and August and a high proportion of matches were abandoned.

1997 Season Summary

Commentary

The league team was promoted from Division 5 with Tim Berry being the most successful bowler in the league. He also topped the batting averages thanks to 9 unbeated innings and 286 runs.

Only 28 games were played, a much smaller total than the previous season suggesting the weather was not friendly. Of the 28 games at least 16 were league games so the number of friendly fixtures was greatly reduced.

Other interesting facts; M. Martin played a single game and scored 98 runs, and David Lamming played in a single game for the Cavaliers along with 23 others that made a solitary appearance!
