Bharj Singh top scored with a fine 67 at Billericay as Hornchurch made 129-8 against local neighbours Hornchurch Athletic.

Dean Skipper (2-16), Ed Smith (2-22) and Mark James (2-27) combined well with the ball for Hornchurch as they dismissed their rivals for 109 with seven balls remaining, as wicketkeeper Paul Murray completed four stumpings.

Kevin Gibson (40) and Murray (30) top scored as they were dismissed for 152 on Saturday by Harlow and lost by six wickets.

William Law (2-10), Sam Childs (2-11), Alex Brown and Joe Defreitas (both 2-14) saw the thirds dismiss Southend for 102, before Simon Walker (52 not out) and Neil Butler (46) sealed a 10-wicket win.
