THE TALBOTS AT ESSEX COUNTY CRICKET GROUND
On Tuesday September 26th Sudbury CC were invited by Essex CCC to parade the EAPL Championship Trophy around the ground during the tea interval - an experience that those players who were able to attend will remember for some time.  Around 2,000 spectators were in the ground at the time and all parts of the ground roundly applauded the players and club officials as they made their way around the ground.  Our thanks to Essex CCC for the invitation - hopefully we will be invited again next year - and congratulations to Essex on winning The Specsavers County Championship - Division One having completed the whole season unbeaten.

Week 22 Matches
Date Team Match Opponents Venue Result Scores Report
Sat 16 Sept 1st XI EAPL Swardeston Home Aban    
  2nd XI Two Cty 3 Exning Away Aban Exning 49-2  
  3rd XI Friendly Twinstead Away Won 122-4 : 121-5*  
The best ever season for the club finished on Saturday with the clubhouse full of celebration.  The 1st XI won the EAPL for the first time and became only the second Suffolk club to get their hands on the trophy.  The 'crunch match' against Swardeston was finally abandoned at 2:50 after many pitch inspections and an early lunch.  The start was rescheduled for 2:30 at 32 overs per side, but just as the players were about to take the field the heavens opened up again and the umpires called the game off.  Very difficult decisions had to be made and all of groundsman David Oakes' hard work eventually came to nothing.  The weather meant that only 2 EAPL games were completed, and our 2nd XI only managed 16 overs at Exning before returning home to join in the celebrations as the rain worked its way south through Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and into Suffolk.  Wisely the 3rd XI at Twinstead decided on a 20 overs match and won off the final ball - what a way to end the season (Ben Duncan 2 - 18, and Will Amos 47*).  The celebrations continued into the night with the annual Players Dinner and Website Awards - many thanks as usual to Chairman Louis Brooks for conducting proceedings and to Mark Warbrook for organising the event.  It's now time to put the ground to bed, finalise all the statistics and finances in time for the AGM in November and start planning to defend the 1st XI's title and stabalise the 2nd XI in Division 2 in 2018.  The work never stops but it is all worth while as Saturday proved - WHAT A FANTASTIC CLUB - and thanks to all our supporters who have visited Friars Street and offered messages of 'good luck' throughout the season - A REAL CREDIT TO THE TOWN.

Who'd be a Groundsman ?
David Oakes and his helpers have got their work cut out to keep the rain off for Saturday's EAPL match against Swardeston.  The forecast doesn't look very promising but that doesn't stop the groundstaff from putting the effort in.  Just after this photo was taken (5pm on Thursday) the heavens opened again !

Saturday 3rd XI match this weekend is now away at Twinstead and not Castle Hedingham
