Having suffered only their second defeat in nine matches at Harold Wood a week earlier, the leaders travelled down up the A12 to Gallows Corner and chose to bat first.

Park captain Jamal Francis removed Cameron Tredgett with 22 runs on the board, but Julian Whetstone and Adam Holdgate then put on 90 for the second wicket, with both scoring half-centuries.

Whetstone hit nine fours in his 55 off 53 balls, before falling to Aditya Kumar (2-32), who also accounted for Holdgate after he had hit a six and six fours in his 53 off 76 deliveries.

Paver then took charge as wickets continued to fall at regular intervals, with Adam McKie (2-67) nabbing a brace.

Paver had late support from Tom Patterson, who hit two sixes and two fours in his 30 off just 18 balls, and finished unbeaten on 101 from 94 deliveries, after hitting a six and 13 fours as Hutton closed on 284-9.

Sam O’Sullivan (2-55) also struck twice for Park, who lost Francis cheaply in reply to Connor Limrick (2-46) and saw George Rogers run out by Paver to leave them 26-2.

Callum Poultney (25) put on 76 with Sam Hewitt, before falling to Paver (2-36), who also trapped Kumar lbw.

And Hewitt was bowled by Whetstone having scored 63 off 61 balls, including 13 fours, to leave Park 125-5.

The home side their lower-order batsmen all make starts, with James Pegram (21) and McKie (26 not out) passing 20, but they came up short on 256 in the 46th over.
