information over several years. We also arranged a visit

The death of the owner has caused the property to be put
on the market. This publicity has prompted other
interested parties to come to the fore. The article in a
recent Herts & Essex Observer shows a local lady has
taken up the project and this resulted in Anglia

the chance to see it. However a DVD copy has now been

It's really been a squad effort again, 20 players represented
us in the league overall. We must thank our tea ladies
including Teresa Mascall for their time and effort
producing the best teas in the world - we really appreciate
it. Also, thanks must go to Tom Mascall who organises the
team, and evergreen Peter Graves for his many grass

We started youth cricket for 7-12 year olds in June which
has had a great response from the children and parents.
We'll continue to do it next year and nurture some
impressive young talents!
As you may be aware, the square was dug up and relaid in
September, which will hopefully improve the pitch as we
continue to march up the league in 2009!

travels from Little Hallingbury and league newcomers

Great Easton.

On Tuesday, October 21, four second half goals guided

the team to a comfortable victory against near-neighbours

Hatfield Broad Oak. Following a goalless first half in the

home fixture, Abigail Stevens, Ewan Rockell, Harry

Feest and Cameron Dick all hit the target in a 4-0 win.

It was a tighter affair at Rodings on November 6, but still

the Heath emerged triumphant with a 2-1 win. Ewan

Rockell was joined on the scoresheet by James Baughurst

as the visitors nicked the points with a second half goal,

after going in at 1-1 at the break.

The second string side were due to visit Howe Green ‘B’

month to see how they got on. By Billy Shaw
