A Tribute to Brad Davis

One of our oldest and dearest friends, Brad Davis, died last month. Brad was a Chigwell founder-member and purveyor of the slowest non-spinning bowling on record. We are staging a memorial match for Brad on Sunday 16th July at Old Chigs. All welcome to come along and celebrate Brad's life and unique batting stance.

League website updates

The Middlesex and Essex Invitation League website has been updated with the complete fixture list for 2016, as well as updated playing conditions. The only significant difference to previous years is that all league games will begin at 1pm with last hour starting at 5.30pm. More time for everyone to patronise Rusty's Bar.
