Bentley got the better of Newham to maintain their challenge at the top of the Hamro Foundation Essex League Division Three table.

Leg-spinner Ash Parmenter (4-64) and pace bowler Steve Flack (2-34) had most success as the hosts were dismissed for 207.

And impressive half-centuries from Tom Mann (72 not out) and Dan Matthews (67) saw Bentley to a seven-wicket win.

The seconds fell to a 128-run defeat in Mid-Essex League Division Three against South Loughton.

The visitors made  200-8 off 35 overs, as Matt France (3-54) and Sanath Serasingne (2-46) took bowling honours.
