After restricting the hosts to 163-8, the Broxhill Road club were all out for 106

Havering-atte-Bower’s faint hopes of promotion come to an end last weekend after they lost at Burnham Sports in the T-Rippon Mid-Essex League Division Two.

Going into the game, Anthony Downes’ men knew they were big outsiders to finish inside the top two, but still wanted to end the campaign strongly.

In the shape of Burnham Sports, they were taking on a rival for a high-placed finish with Sports enjoying a fine second half of the season.

Havering fielded first and put in a solid effort to restrict the hosts to only 163-8 from their 45 overs.

While the final target of 164 didn’t look too many runs, it proved too difficult for the away side and they were all out for 106 in the 38th over.

It was Havering second consecutive defeat and sees them drop to sixth in the table on 224 points.

Next up for Downes’ side is a home fixture with fourth-placed High Roding, who have 250 points to their name.

The last meeting on June 23 saw Havering defeated after they failed to chase down 238.
