Seven-wicket win for Essex League Division Two hopefuls
Hutton maintained their good form in Essex League Division Two with a seven-wicket win over Horndon.
The visitors chose to bat after winning the toss at the Polo Field Ground and had solid contributions from their top five.
Shahbaz Iqbal (46 not out) and Stephen Edwards put on an unbroken 55 for the eighth wicket, the best partnership of the innings, as they closed on 232-7, with Mitchell Fenn (3-94) and Vivian Paver (2-32) the pick of the home bowling.
In-form Chris Steinberg (35) put on 69 for the first Hutton wicket with Alex Tredgett, who added another 53 with Dan Hagger (33).
And Tredgett then shared in a 107-run stand with Paver before falling for 70, having hit a six and eight fours in a 111-ball innings that took Hutton to the brink of victory.
Paver was unbeaten on 83, having smashed eight sixes and six fours in a whirlwind 54-ball knock, as Hutton reached their target in the 42nd over.
