James Evans and Luke Read both made half centuries for Upminster seconds in the reverse fixture at Brentwood, with Rob Waghorn and Junaid Sarwar helping Upminster to reach 223-8.

Andrew Berry and Ollie Heazle picked up two wickets each as Upminster pushed for victory, but Brentwood settled for the draw at 182-7.

The third team between the two clubs also ended in a draw as Brentwood posted a challenging 211-8 and, despite an excellent half century from Mark Schofield, Upminster finished on 188-9.

The fourth team also drew, after captain Billy Wright took five wickets as Chelmsford made 221-8.

Upminster made a good start in reply through Jordan Tigg and Alex Mitchell, but then lost wickets steadily and finished on 116-8.

There was also a draw for the fifth team in their game with Harold Wood fourths.

Wood piled up 250-6 before declaring early, and Upminster held out at 148-8.

Upminster sixthsa put in their best performance of the season in an excellent game against Harlow Town fourths.

Town made 200-7 despite excellent bowling spells from Michael Jones, Jake Giddings and Nathan Bright.

Giddings, Alex Bottoms and Rob Bannister then all made good contributions with the bat, but Upminster were bowled out for 173.

On Sunday, 94 from Alex Ward helped Upminster to a two-wicket win over Epping in a friendly.
