Third win in a row for Leworthy’s men
Danny Beechey clubbed six sixes and 13 fours in an unbeaten 100, from just 79 balls, as Havering beat Stock by nine wickets on Saturday.
Scott Jackson (4-31) and Andrew Mitchieson (3-40) combined with the ball to dismiss the home side — unbeaten since the beginning of last season — for 154.
And Beechey shared 144 with Jackson, who hit 10 fours in his 56-ball 49, as captain Ben Leworthy saw his Havering side make it three wins out of three in Mid-Essex League Division Three.
Ardleigh Green fell to a third successive defeat in the Shepherd Neame League Premier Division.
Muazzam Ali (61) top scored as Green were dismissed for 225, which Wanstead reached with four wickets and five overs to spare.
Hornchurch produced a solid display to beat Division One rivals Buckhurst Hill.
Michael Bones (31) led the way as Hornchurch were dismissed for 174, but Billy Gordon (3-40), Dean Skipper (2-14), Danny Evans (2-30) and Mark Whitlock (2-55) shared the wickets to help clinch a 15-run win.
New Zealander Jimmy Neesham hit another unbeaten century as Upminster piled up 375-8 against Orsett.
Alan Ison clubbed 91 in a lightning start and shellshocked Orsett were shot out for 170 in reply.
Gidea Park & Romford were on the receiving end against Shenfield, as former Essex staff Jonathan Powell hit 120 from 108 balls in their 305-8.
Vamshi Lingala took 4-61 for Park, who were never really in the hunt and eventually dismissed for 181.
Stand-in skipper Kevin Gibson (43) top scored as Harold Wood were dismissed for 162 by Hadleigh, who reached their target in quick time, with eight wickets and 29 overs in hand.
