Zampa, signed as an overseas player by county champions Essex, claimed six wickets as the home side were skittled for 64 in pursuit of a victory target of 211.

And his heroics with the ball came after he had scored 35 with the bat to support captain Aaron West (44), James Redwood (37 not out) and Rishi Patel (25) in helping Brentwood reach 210-8 declared.

Former England Test spinner Monty Panesar maintained his own good form with a 5-60 haul, as Mehad Khan (2-57) nabbed a brace from a 21-over spell.

But Hornchurch lost early wickets in reply as Anthony Giles and Ben Allison struck, before Zampa began to turn the screw.
