Message from your Chairman: Amazing days ahead!
As the 2014 season comes towards its end Boughton Hall finds itself in the middle of some spectacular battles. Over the next 3 weeks our four men's teams, the ladies and our juniors could achieve a record trophy haul.
With the club having such a positive year we invite you to come along and share the success. Please keep referring to the club website at www.chesterboughtonhall.co.uk for full details, including travel plans for Northampton, times of matches and opportunities to get in the middle of what promises to be a fantastic few weeks of cricket.
Look at what we have got coming up:
First XI After Sundays victory over Northern CC (who were fantastic guests to our club) Lee Dixon's first eleven have reached a National final for the very first time. Our side featured 5 players who started their cricketing career in our juniors at under 11 - testimony to the success of our player development. Superb performances from numerous players have contributed to this success and under Lee's leadership our junior players are leaving their names marked in Boughton Halls history, alongside some of us 'more experienced' cricketers!!!
What's next? T20 National Finals day on September 9 live on Sky Sports from the county ground Northampton: The top 4 club sides at T20 cricket go head to head live on Sky. This promises to be an amazing day for the players and the club. We will be taking a bus for spectators - details will be on the website very soon. >
Cheshire Cup semi final away against Oxton on Sunday 31 August. After winning the trophy two years in a row we are aiming to make it a hat trick of cup wins and with the prospect of the Cheshire Cup final at Boughton Hall on Sunday 7 September, expectation is again building.
Liverpool Echo T20 final against Wallasey at Boughton Hall on Sunday 14 September: As current holders we are seeking to retain the trophy at home against old Liverpool Comp rivals Wallasey. Outstanding wins in the quarter and Semi finals over Ormskirk and New Brighton respectively leaves us with a great family day ahead at Filkins Lane. A hog roast and BBQ will be available, with bouncy castle for the youngest members.

Ladies Once again the ladies team are doing us proud and were runners up last weekend in the Cheshire Cup final against Willaston.
Fourth XI Currently top of the league by some considerable distance, led by team guru Phil Evans. The league trophy could statistically be ours after this coming weekend.
Third XI Currently top of the league and in T20 final on Sunday 31 August: Dave Fishers team will go down to the wire in their fight for league honours.
Second XI Fourth In the league and pushing for top three finish, Dan Riley is doing a great job bringing through players including Shanil 'Shane' Patel. Shane started in the T20 regional final semi-final taking 5 wickets in the clubs win over Stone CC the Staffordshire club champions.
Our club has never been so strong, please be part of these coming weeks; tell family and friends; invite your neighbours; tell any and every one about our shared successes - on and off of the field but most importantly recognise the achievements of our wonderful club.

1XI T20 Midlands Region Champions 2014
Stone In the first fixture of the day, the first XI had the challenge of the champions of the North Staffs and South Cheshire competition. Chester lost the toss and was asked to bat on what looked to be a good pitch at Barnt Green. Stone opened with two spinners, Rolo (41) and Warren (34) started quickly with the 57 scored in the six over power play. Warren was ran out at the non-strikers end unluckily which brought the captain Lee Dixon to the crease. The captain made a characteristic 60 off 29 balls which included some strong hitting against Stone’s attack, when he finally dismissed Chester were 148-4 off 16 overs. The batting continued to kick on making 44 in the final four overs with contributions from Ross Dixon (23), Seamus (9) and Jim (6*). Chester finished on 192. Stone’s innings started quickly with some powerful hitting during the powerplay with 48 being scored from the first four overs. Ross Dixon picked up a couple wickets to leave the side on 52-2 from 5 overs. Enter Shane Patel with the game in a fine balance the 15 year old SLA spinner came on in the final over of the powerplay, bowling with magnificent flight and control the 2nd XI spinner picked up three wickets in his first over effectively killing the game with Stone 56-5 from 6. The terminal decline continued with Patel picking up another couple of wickets to finish with 5-9, his efforts where supplemented by the return of Goodwin and Rolo to the bowling attack. Griff made a notable contribution finishing up with 2-3. Stone finished on 103 with an 89 run victory for Chester. An outstanding result meaning that the game against Barnt Green was effectively a regional final. V Barnt Green Following an excellent tea, it was time for Chester to play against the day’s hosts.
Barnt Green from the Birmingham and District League won the toss and elected to bat in front of a strong home crowd. The powerplay overs proved to be more economical than the previous game with the home side going at around a run a ball with Warren bowling tightly. A steady flow of wickets from Chester’s spin attack Ross (2-19) and Rolo (2-16) stemmed the run rate with Barnt Green 63-6 off eleven overs. Patel and Griff continued to bowl tightly with Chester being set 117 from twenty overs to ensure passage to the next round. Chester’s response got off to a competent start with Rolo and Warren scoring quickly, Rolo was dismissed for 11 which brought the skipper Lee Dixon to the crease. The following three overs saw Chester score 50 with Warren and Lee combining aggressive running with aerial strokeplay. Warren finished on 55 from 33 balls with the captain unbeaten 29 alongside Ollie Law who made 13 not out. Chester chased down the total in the 13th over for the loss of one wicket to complete a successful day at the office. Chester now face a difficult challenge on Sunday when they play a strong Northern side to progress to the last four in the country.
Chester were followed by a coach of supporters who gave the team great confidence and vocal backing all day, With Sunday the final hurdle before the televised four team finals day I am sure more club member will be out in force to support the team vs Northern 1pm start at the club.

4XI Averages at half way stage
Following the over 40s match on 24th June against Upton CC the behaviour of two Boughton Hall players was deemed unacceptable and in violation of the ‘Spirit of Chester Boughton Hall Cricket’. As a consequence disciplinary proceedings were initiated against them.
S. Cranston was guilty of abusing equipment and dissent against the umpire.
G. Vernon was guilty of aggressive behaviour towards an opponent on the field of play.
Both have been banned from playing cricket for three weeks WEF 26th June.
Both players have apologised for their behaviour and accept their actions were very much against the ‘Spirit of Cricket’ that we at CBHCC try very hard to abide by.
