Tigg’s men propping up table after five matches

Upminster were sent to a heavy defeat by Essex League Premier Division rivals Southend, six days after their cup loss to the same opponents.

Captain Matt Tigg chose to bat first, but Julian Whestone fell cheaply to Adam Rendall and Tigg was dismissed by Harry Ridgewell after hitting three early boundaries.

Alex Kirkpatrick, Shahbaz Butt and Alan Ison followed in quick succession as Southend’s bowlers continued to wreak havoc.

Frankie Hazle hit three fours in his top score of 20, having faced 52 balls, but no other Upminster batsman made it into double figures as they were skittled for 89 in 41 overs.

Ridgwell finished with 5-14 from his 11 overs, as Rendall (2-8) and Joe Robbins (2-44) nabbed braces.

And the visitors went on to record a comfortable eight-wicket win, despite Connor and Julian Whetstone picking up a wicket apiece for the home side.

A third defeat in five outings leaves Upminster bottom of the table, 20 points adrift of safety, as matches revert to the limited-overs format for the next nine weeks.

They travel to picturesque Castle Park to take on fellow strugglers Colchester next weekend.
