RAIN eventually washed out all Harlow games on Saturday with all teams in strong positions. 1st XI playing at home against Orsett had scored 217/3 off 42 overs before rain stopped play for an early tea.

THIS Sunday 16th July starting at 9.30 a four team U16 20/20 cricket Tournament is taking place at Harlow Cricket Club Chippingfields Old Harlow.
THE sun shone at Phoenix Park on Saturday as Harlow Town made hay! After losing Dan Baldwin with only eight runs on the board, Ashley Alderson, 66 and Joe Holland, 69, took control putting the visitors to the sword
THE home side piled up 262-4 from their 45 overs as Harlow struggled to take their chances. Giddings 112* and S.Limm 88 (dropped first ball) made them pay for that mistake.
ON an energy sapping afternoon Harlow Town found themselves in the field, Epping winning the toss and electing to Bat, and soon found themselves two wickets down, Jay Pathak inducing edges from Webb and Mithani,
HARLOW retained second place in Division 1 after an evenly-fought draw with a strong Harold Wood side. Rehman Ahmed took the positive option of electing to bowl first and try and chase down the win but ultimately the side needed to settle for the draw.
HARLOW Town welcomed West Essex to Phoenix Park on Saturday on the back of glorious sunshine all week.
Glorious sunshine, the new clubhouse looking terrific and another belter of a pitch prepared by Cliff Clark: this was the scene as Harlow 1 XI hosted newly-promoted Belhus in the team’s first home league game of the season. Belhus started the day as league leaders, with Harlow only four points behind in fourth place.
AFTER a week of horrendous weather, it was perhaps no surprise that the wicket that greeted Harlow Town in their away fixture against Woodford Green was incredibly damp.
HARLOW Cricket Club has a rich tradition. One that president, Alan Howick is very proud to chronicle and uphold.
CONGRATULATIONS to the 16 participating teams who attended today’s Kwik-Cricket Festival for Years 3 and 4 at Harlow Town Cricket Club. Once again the weather was kind (at least the rain held off) and the teams were able to develop their skills through a series of games in both the morning and the afternoon.
A FEW weeks ago, we noticed that there were signs of life at the cricket pavilion near to Waterhouse Moor.
HARLOW were put into bat by a Harold Wood team desperate for a win to bolster their promotion ambitions. Hafiz got Harlow off to a great start smashing the first ball of the game through the covers for 4. Thereafter Hafiz and Alan Jones played more circumspectly, with plenty of dot balls interspersing the boundaries. There was symmetry in the innings and dismissal of the openers:
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. Ennio Morricone’s theme to the classic spaghetti western would have provided an appropriate accompaniment to this match.
The Good? Some fearsome hitting by Southend’s captain Joe Robbins: his 150 not out was off no more than about 70 balls and included thirteen 4s and nine 6s. It was the most destructive innings Luke Heskett had witnessed in 10 years of First XI cricket;
A great start by the bowlers left Hadleigh reeling at 29-3, the wickets being shared between Mustanser, Nicky Baxter and Callum Sykes. Hadleigh were indebted to Adam Soilleux and Sam Handley for a terrific century partnership,
THE first team got back to winnings ways against local rivals Loughton, batting first Harlow were once again indebted to Ahmed Khawaja who struck a magnificent 145 from a total of 290 from their allotted 50 overs, support from Alan Jones (38), Ubaid (46) and a quick-fire 23 from Nicky Baxter saw Harlow reach their impressive total. In response Loughton made a dignified attempt at chasing the Harlow total,
HARLOW put in a poor performance against Harold Wood which saw them tamely surrender their unbeaten status and slump back into a mid-table berth. Harlow never really came to terms with the overcast conditions and a damp pitch which had a bit of variable bounce. Mohammed Waqas (11) hit a well-timed flick through mid-wicket and an aggressive pull shot before being bowled by Maruf Chowdhury. Alan Jones (14) struggled to find any tempo to his innings before being bowled in the eighteenth over.
BELHUS maintained their position at the top of the Shepherd Neame Essex League division two with another strong performance at North Stifford on Saturday. Joe Joyce fell just three runs short of a century and the home total was boosted further by Daniel Dreher’s cameo of 47 runs from just 22 deliveries. Good supporting roles were played Liam Wilson, 30, and Roy Heffernan with 23 runs. For the visitors, Daniel Farmer and Joe Elston picked up three wickets each.
IN a throwback to a bygone era, it was classic Geoff Boycott and his uncovered pitches: wet, green, soft and terrible for batting. Mohammed Waqas hinted at the way to score when he struck a couple of shots straight back over the bowler’s head. Waqas (8) was clean bowled and the departure of Alan Jones (3) and Rehman Ahmed (0) left Harlow floundering on 25-3.
