Welcome to the Streatham & Marlborough Sweep (SMS)
There was no SMS update last week so I'll try to cover two weeks worth of action in a concise manner!
Pavilion Update
Many thanks to those who have come forward with offers of help following our latest update, a meeting will take place shortly to get things rolling here.

It would be useful if all members continue to give some thought on potential lettings. Of particular interest would be to rent space to a physiotherapy practice so any introductions here would be great.

Equally, do we have any commercial lettings experience within the club? 
Senior Roundup

The Men's 3s, 4s, (Surrey) 5s and 6s all recorded two wins in the past fortnight as the sides make their way up their respective leagues. 

In fact, in the past three weeks, the senior club has recorded just three losses in twenty-three games, winning eighteen. A stunning run of form across the club. 

Starting with the weekend just gone, the Women's 1s secured a comprehensive 172 run victory against Reigate Priory. Susan Little (53) top scored and Reigate were dismissed for just 25 with wickets shared around. The women's coming back after two losses to Sutton in the Slam and Ashford in the League. The Men's 3s impressively chased down 177 against Banstead having been 10-3 early in the chase. Ormesher (53*) building on solid contributions from Lucas (38) and Subbhian (47). Their chasing form continued in their victory against Hampton Wick Royal, Otway (4-30) and Paul (58) the main contributors. The M4s made hard work of a low chase against Worcester Park (Parker 62) having comfortably beaten Trinity Mid-Whitgiftian the week before (Glazier 4-21). The Men's Surrey 5s put on two dominant performances against Old Wimbledonians (Peake 4-11) and Merstham (Waring 54). The M6s made 195-4 against Bexleyheath and won by 122 runs (Faizan Haider 75, Baqa Haider 53, Fraser Knapp 4-16).The Men's 2s clung on to a draw at Woking & Horsell but fell short against a strong Hampton Wick Royal side. And finally, the Men's 1s drew against Old Whitgiftians and edge a close one against Cheam (Singh 5-26). 

Afraid it's a whistle-stop tour so no reports for the various friendly fixtures but all scorecards can be seen here. Though just to echo a note on the Facebook group that there remains a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes to get all these games sorted - kudos to Chris Hobbis, Andrew Brook and all the skippers. 
Full match reports are available on the Facebook Group (where available)

Junior Roundup - 1 to 11 July

SMCC bounced back in style in July. 
The U17s recorded a thrilling victory over Roehampton chasing 123 from their 20 overs thanks in large part to a stunning 68 not out from 61 balls from Wolfie Mueller. They then went on to beat Spencer. Wolfie again top scored with 39, Adam Haque (2 for 9) and Harry Forman Wilshaw (2 for 7).
The Boys U9s won by 319 to 303 vs Spencer before beating Dulwich by 43 runs. The U8s notched up another big 55-run win against Southern Railway and then beat Purley by 40 runs. 
The Girls U13s beat "the mighty Hayes" earlier in the season. The double was not to be, but they took it close; losing by 91 to 97. Eva Hanna (19 runs) and Lily Morrin (22no).
The Boys U13s also lost in the Kent league to Bickley Park in another tight affair. Just 6 runs in it. They then counter-punched in a friendly against Catford & Cypher, chasing down the target of 51 in just 8.4 overs. Cillian Farrell-Bryan (3-4 and 24).
Boys U12s had a tough start to the season but this week put one over on Spencer. SMCC amasses 136 before holding Spencer to 126. Gus Butler-Wright made 30 and two wickets whilst Jonathan Kay made 28. The Boys U12s developing players also lost a friendly to a strong Wimbledon side.
The U15s were unable to match the batting firepower of Trinity Mid-Whits. Notable innings from powerhouse Josh Channon (30), Joseph Hale-Proudley (20) and Adam Haque (22).
Last but certainly not least, the Boys U11s closed out a nerve-shredding final over against their closest division rivals Dulwich. Dylan Robson (31 retired not out) was the mainstay as SMCC posted 91. Otto and Dylan and Leo Lyle then took early wickets before Dulwich put on a good partnership that threatened to put them on top. Daniel Tough and player of the match Huxley Chapman checked their progress but Dulwich but a lower order assault kept them in the game right up to the final ball, when Albie nailed the win in the best possible style, splattering the stumps.
Finally, our mixed boys/girls U11s team got to the semi-final of a festival played at Beddington. Lots of great cricket played!
The race is hotting up as we move into the middle of the season in the Fantasy SMCC Cricket League. It's tight at the top with Raph Pendergast narrowly in the lead from John Ormesher and Humphrey Craven. 

Week 9 MVP was John Ormesher for MVP for guiding the 3s home against Banstead with 53* along with a wicket earlier. Week 10 MVP was Raj Singh who took 5-26 this week and hit the winning runs against Cheam. In week 1, he took 6-19 against the same opposition.
