Gidea Park & Romford kept their Essex League Division Two promotion hopes alive with a comfortable derby win over Hutton at Gallows Corner.

Shawn Findlay and Zisan Abedin took four wickets apiece as the visitors were dismissed for a modest 132, before captain Jamal Francis and Kasi Hoq hit half-centuries to lead the hosts to a seven-wicket success.

Francis won the toss and put the visitors into bat, but saw Dan Hagger hit three early boundaries before being bowled by Findlay in the third over.

Sam Hewitt dismissed James Mowll with the Hutton score on 21 and Findlay ended Mitchell Fenn’s stay at the crease to make it 29-3 in the 11th over.

Young Charlie Haddon dismissed dangerman Carl Mumba for just nine to leave Hutton 42-4, before visiting skipper Stuart Feeley and Alex Tredgett steadied the ship with a 45-run partnership.

But Findlay got rid of Feeley and Abedin dismissed Alex Pearce and Tredgett in quick succession to make it 99-7 in the 36th over.

Abedin (4-40) struck twice more to leave the visitors nine down, before Findlay (4-34) wrapped up the Hutton innings on 132.

But Park lost Elliot Joyner, called up following a century for the seconds a week earlier, early in their reply as Mumba struck with the ball.

Francis and Kasi Hoq combined in a century stand, though, to put the home side on top, with the skipper hitting eight fours on his way to 57 off 63 balls before he fell to Chris McNally.

Hoq struck eight boundaries to reach 61 from 93 deliveries, before he also fell to McNally.

But the scores were level at that point and Abedin hit a winning boundary to seal a seven-wicket success with plenty of time to spare.
