Ardleigh Green got the better of Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three rivals Westcliff with four wickets and six overs to spare at Central Park.

The visitors chose to bat first, but Adam Thain struck early with the new ball for Green with only four runs on the board.

Thain (2-32) struck again to make it 51-2, before Zunair Jamil (2-35) got in on the act to dismiss visiting captain Jonathan Pratt.

Lewis Groves and Jack Stead then put on 80 for the fourth wicket, before Trevor Oakley (3-43) ended their partnership and Westcliff slipped from 151-3 to 179-9.

Green lost openers Tom Gentle and Paul Hurworth cheaply to slip to 24-2, before Choudhry Mahboob (28) and Thain got them on track.

Thain put on 73 for the fourth wicket with Chris Cook, hitting five fours in his 51 off 83 balls, but captain Lloyd Edwards fell cheaply.

Ellis Williams made it into double figures in support of Cook, who finished unbeaten on 55 from 82 deliveries, having hit seven fours, to see Green to their target.
