Epping Colts impress at District and County Trials 17/1/10
Several Epping colts have been selected for the West Essex district squad. I have been informed that Sam Ellis, Stanley Eaton and James Webber have been selected for the district squad for the coming season. This is an outstanding achievement for the boys at such an early stage in their cricketing development and is a massive credit to the effort they have put in over the last year under the supervision of coaching supremos Terry Preston and Jacob Ellis.

In addition to this, I have recently been informed that Laura Ellis was successful at trials for the Essex girls squad, having impressed playing for the district team last year. She has recently begun training with the squad in the winter months.

Epping Colts Play at the County Ground 4/9/09
The Epping CC colts rounded off an excellent season with an exciting trip to the County Ground in Chelmsford. However, rather than watching the action unfold on the hallowed turf of Essex, they were part of the action under the lights at the County Ground. The club was lucky enough to secure a place in the 'mini-matchplay' competition which involves teams from across the county playing 'kwik cricket'. Epping, as usual, gave a great account of themselves against mainly older opposition, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This was topped off by each of the players being presented with a medal for their efforts. Coaches Jacob Ellis and Terry Preston hailed 'an excellent end to the season in which each of the players made huge strides forward as young cricketers, and more importantly thoroughly enjoyed their first steps into the game of cricket.
