Ardleigh Green claimed a convincing win over Stanford in their latest Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three outing at Central Park.

Put into bat, they saw Paul Hurworth (28) make early runs alongside Choudhry Mahboob, who had further support from Luke Edwards (48) and captain Lloyd Edwards (55).

Mahboob went on to make 122, with James Duhig adding an unbeaten 25 as Green piled up a challenging 353-7 from their 50 overs, boosted by 32 wides in a total of 43 extras.

Stanford were soon in trouble as Duhig and Trevor Oakley (4-57) claimed early wickets in their reply to leave them five down.

Orrie Fernandes (73) and Adam Knight (93) combined well for the sixth wicket, but Chris Cook and Lloyd Edwards (2-31) broke through and Sam Brooks took the final wicket to seal a 94-run win in the 43rd over.

Victory saw Green leapfrog Westcliff into fifth place at the midway stage of the season ahead of next weekend’s home fixture against West Essex.
