Disappointment for Essex League Division Three clubs

Woodford Green were well beaten by Leigh in their latest Essex League Division Three outing.

Put into bat by the visitors, they lost captain Hamaad Sayyed, Saad Ijaz and Seam Martin cheaply to finnd themselves 26-3.

Majid Sialvi (25) and Jack Cossey (24) steadied the ship briefly, but Green needed lower-order runs from Haris Siddiqui, who hit a six and five fours in his 40, to reach a modest 146 in 45 overs.

Nonetheless, it proved to be a fairly straight forward run chase for Leigh, who reached their target with seven wickets and plenty of overs in hand, despite Cossey, Paul Richardson and Ashish Rai having some success with the ball for the home side.

It was a similar story for Ardleigh Green, who were beaten by four wickets by West Essex after being dismissed for 149.

Adam Thain led the way with 54, but Green were grateful to 31 extras as no other batsman passed 18.

Captain Chris Cook produced fine bowling figures of 14-3-35-5 in reply, but it proved in vain as West Essex reached their target in the 32nd over.
