It was a busy weekend of local sport. Here’s how it panned out:
Essex Cricket League
Brentwood beat Colchester & East Essex by 40 runs
NOW TOP OF THE LEAGUE!
Billericay beat Leigh-on-Sea by 9 wickets
Billericay move up to 3rd
Billericay Town 3-2 Thamesmead Town (after trailing 0-2 at half time)
Kingstonian 3-0 East Thurrock United
Division One North
Brentwood Town 2-4 Dereham Town
The featured live game on Between The Lines came from the Twickenham Stoop, where local Super League side the London Broncos completed their home campaign – and their worst one ever – with yet another defeat after succumbing to leaders Huddersfield Giants 12-26.
It was a very brave performance from the rock bottom Broncos, though, who were well in contention right up until inside the last five minutes. It was also the last home appearance by England Knights internationalist Dan Sarginson, on his way to title contenders Wigan Warriors.
At pitch side after the game, Dan was kind enough to give Phoenix FM Sport a little take on the game and his spell with the capital club.

We do, of course, wish Dan every success, and with Wigan Warriors he has every chance of succeeding. A decent lad like Sarge deserves to.
And that’s what you call a busy weekend of sport!
