Cavaliers defeat University to clinch Alan Barlow Challenge Cup

Under skies like the roof of Hades, these two behemoth teams clashed, the pride of Divisions One and Two. Kevin Lines lobbing hand grenades and Tim Berry as accurate as a sniper with the enemy in his sights restricted the scholars openers to a scorer’s dip in his inkwell and little on the page.

Cavaliers win Colchester Evening League

A bold contingent of Cavaliers, bolstered by a few mercenaries from Boxted (n.b. people that have helped us all season – thanks chaps), successfully saw off the threat of rivals DNE Networks in a quite fiercely contested head to head showdown to deservedly win the Colchester Evening League Division Two title and hence secure promotion. Both teams have suffered two defeats and have 30 points, but Cavaliers take the league title on higher average runs per wicket - plus we twice beat DNA Networks.
