Australian all-rounder Vivian Paver helped Hutton to an eight-wicket win over Harold Wood on the last day of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One season.

But it was not enough for promotion, as Belhus pipped them to the runners-up spot behind champions Buckhurst Hill by four points.

The visitors chose to bat first at the Polo Field ground, but Tom Patterson dismissed Mdaminul Isalm Shihan with only 13 runs on the board.

Wood captain Craig Perrin made a start before falling to Joseph Parry to make it 55-2, but Raihan Hussain put on 70 with opener Hafiz Yawar Afzal, who fell one run short of a half-century to Paver.

Hussain made 50, from 94 balls, before also succumbing to Paver, who sent Joe Stallibrass and Hamzah Ikram packinng from successive balls to leave Wood 148-6.

Chris Bennett hit six fours in his 28 off 25 balls, but became Paver’s fifth victim, before Parry (2-27) dismissed Taqi Abbas for a duck.

Mohammed Fahad also failed to trouble the scorers as Parry held a catch off the bowling of Paver, who completed a 7-46 haul when Shahbaz Khan (40) was last man out to end the innings on 214.

Paver then put on 177 for the first Hutton wicket with Alex Tredgett, who hit 11 fours in his 79 off 121 balls beforehe was trapped lbw by Fahad.

Julian Whetstone helped take Hutton to the brink in a brief cameo, with Paver unbeaten on 115 from 119 balls, having hit six sixes and six fours, as Hutton reached their target with seven overs to spare.

However, Belhus claimed a maximum 25 points after batting first and beating Upminster, to leave Hutton in third and Wood in fifth in the final standings.
