Woodford Wells 203 lost to Colchester & East Essex 267-6 by 64 runs
WOODFORD WELLS crashed to defeat in their opening SNEL game of the campaign against Colchester & East Essex on Saturday, writes MATT DINER.
Skipper Luke O'Reilly won the toss and saw Colchester make 267, before Wells collapsed to 203 all out.
"We just did not reach the level that we are capable of reaching," admitted a downbeat O'Reilly.
"We did not play well and because of that we were beaten. We made too many errors.

"We bowled too full it's as simple as that, we did not field cleverly either and dropped catches."
Needing a good start, Wells lost Robert Marshall (9) and wicketkeeper Mark Webb, who was run out for eight, before Rob Leiper and Michael Richardson steadied the ship.
However Richardson was also run out for 30 and when Hassan Chowdhury, Will Rogers and Dean Majeed fell cheaply, it was always going to be tough on Leiper, who made a well-crafted 79.
"Rob found some form and hit back well, but it doesn't help when players run themselves out," O'Reilly said.
"Some boys need to be more cricket-aware out there. They don't concentrate enough and I believe that was a big factor in us losing.
