A round-up of the latest results from matches involving Goresbrook CC teams

Goresbrook head for Rettendon in the T. Rippon Mid-Essex Premier Division on Saturday, looking for back-to-back victories

The Goats returned to winning ways last weekend with a seven-wicket success at home to Rayleigh in the league.

After electing to bowl, Goresbrook dismissed Rayleigh for just 122 thanks to brilliant bowling displays from Shane Barwick and Kane Messenger.

Barwick was tormentor-in-chief as he finished with figures of 6-13, while Messenger was also impressive as he took 4-15.

Chasing a relatively low total, the Goats were keen to get the job done quickly and completed their chase in the 23rd over.

Kurt Whisker (35) and Danny Gillham Jr. (18) put on 59 for the opening wicket, while Alfie Boland ended unbeaten with 23 off just 21 balls.

It was a welcome success for Goresbrook, who had seen a five-game winning run come to an end the previous weekend with defeat at title hopefuls Springfield.

The trick for the Goats now is to collect another success when they visit Rettendon on Saturday.

Goresbrook are looking to do the double over Rettendon, having triumphed by 96 runs when the sides last met at the May & Baker Sports & Social Club in June.

The seconds, meanwhile, will look to bounce back from a heavy defeat when they host Willow Herbs in the T. Rippon Mid-Essex Division Three.

Away to Chadwell Heath, Goresbrook were dismissed for 95 on their way to losing by seven wickets.

The Goats will look to hit back this weekend as they bid to climb the standings in Division Three.

Goresbrook third are also looking for a return to winning ways on Saturday when they host Rainham thirds in the T. Rippon Mid-Essex League Division Seven.

The Goats suffered a three-wicket defeat away to Boreham firsts on their previous outing last weekend.

Goresbrook’s Sunday team, meanwhile, tackle Upminster on Sunday as they look to build on a win over Buckhurst Hill in their last game earlier this month.
