Shenfield captain Jack Kliber says his side need to find a way to click after falling to a 168 run defeat to in-form Hornchurch on the weekend.

The defeat at Harrow Lodge Park has left Kliber’s side in the bottom two of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Premier Division.

“They were probably close to full strength and we’re missing a few so it was difficult, but that said I think we done well to keep them to 250, it was just disappointing again as we got off to a half decent start.

“At three, four, five and six it’s just not happening for us at the moment as we’re just not clicking.”

Kliber did praise Arshad Ali who picked up four wickets in the match but also believes it’s no good to them just a couple players performing.

“He’s good, we know what we get with him, he’s been decent but we need to find a way to click and get a win from somewhere.

“It’s no good just one or two players turning up, you look at their team Billy Gordon has got 100 and there has been two or three other 30’s in there.

“From their point of view they clicked and we were a bit too individual.”

Hornchurch lost Mark James without scoring, dismissed by Oliver Castell, but captain Billy Gordon put on 90 with Michael Bones (34) before Arshad Ali struck.

Gordon dropped anchor and added another 74 with Bhajandip Singh Purewal (27), who fell to Alex Rickenbach, before Muhammad Irfan hit a quick 22 off 11 balls, with two sixes.

Captain Gordon struck eight fours to reach 100 off 138 balls, before he became the fourth victim of Ali (4-38), as Hornchurch closed on 259-7.

Jack Potticary hit five fours in a quick 25 in reply, before Gordon dismissed Ali and Mitchell Edwards in the space of a few balls.

Mehad Khan bowled Potticary as a third Shenfield wicket fell with the score on 29, before Alan Jones followed soon after.

Khan picked up a third scalp to make it 49-5, before Irfan (2-11) got in on the act with a quickfire brace.

And Khan struck for a fourth time as Shenfield slumped to 56-8, before Rickenbach smacked a quick 24 off 18 balls, including five fours, in a late show of defiance.

Khan completed a 5-47 haul to end the fireworks, before Marc Whitlock wrapped up a 168-run win by claiming the final wicket with only his third delivery.

The skipper did praise Billy Gordon’s side but does believe his side should be competiting with those sort of teams.

“They’re decent, they’re right up there and I think they’re only 15 points off the top, but still we’ve got to give a better account of ourselves as they’re not 150 runs better than us.”
