Brentwood CC 1st XI Blackheath CC 1st XI

Last 16 of the National Club Championship

Sunday 12 July @ The Old County Ground, Shenfield Road, Brentwood, Essex, CM15 8AJ


Blackheath 1st XI back to winning ways at Bexley

After a run of four consecutive games without an outright win, the Club's 1st XI took 20 points at Bexley to maintain pressure on the league leaders. 

After calling correctly at the toss and electing to bat, skipper Chris Willetts and Dipayan Paul amassed 81 for the first wicket before the former was run out for 25. Paul was in good touch and found the boundary rope frequently before a misjudgment saw him caught behind for 78. Regular wickets then fell until Duncan Willetts (37) and Warren Lee (20) added 48 for the 7th wicket, but they too were dismissed as the Club were bowled out for a competitive 225 in the 53rd over. 

Tanweer Sikandar ensured the Bexley reply got off to the worst possible start as he removed both openers in quick succession and alongside Warren Lee, bowled an accurate spell which gave the home side little opportunity to score. A mixture of Blackheath bowlers then took regular wickets to ensure their side were always on top, but the Club's battery of seamers had led to a slow over rate which added some pressure to take wickets quickly. 

The returning Sikandar who finished with 4-49 and Chris Willetts (2-4) rattled through the Bexley tail although it was Dipayan Paul who took the final wicket to wrap up a 48 run victory with 10 overs remaining. Even more remarkable than any bowling figures though, was the performance of wicket keeper Duncan Willetts who took 6 catches in the innings. 


  • 144* for captain Richard Fleming puts 2nd XI clear at top of Div 1
  • Spry (61) and Wines (8-31) set up 5th XI win at Old Colfeians
  • U13s finish runners-up in Kent County Cup following defeat to Broadstairs

The 1st XI play in the Premier Division of the Kent League, one of the strongest amateur cricket leagues in the UK. The Club’s 2nd, 3rd and 4th XIs also play in to the Kent Premier League structure making the number of opportunities available for high level cricket at one club relatively unique.

The Club’s other XIs, Sunday teams, midweek programme and vibrant social scene mean there is a place for everyone from current internationals to complete beginners.

Blackheath also has one of the leading youth sections in the UK, regularly progressing to the latter stages of the ECB National U13 and U15 Cup competitions. An ECB Focus Club with Clubmark accreditation and a wealth of experienced coaches, Blackheath provides an environment where young people can enjoy the game recreationally but also supports a steady stream of young people to access county age-group squads.

Blackheath Cricket Club is situated in the London Borough of Greenwich but serves much of central south and east London. As such the Club prides itself on a diverse membership with players from around the UK and around the world currently calling the Club’s Rectory Field ground home.
