Ardleigh Green captain Lloyd Edwards pleased his side eased past Epping in their Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three encounter at Central Park.

The visitors chose to bat first after winning the toss, but Scott Jackson (3-49) made early inroads with the new ball for Green.

And Zunair Jamiel (3-30) and Jamal Chaudhry (4-27) shared the other wickets to fall as Epping were dismissed for 148 in the 37th over.

“It was a good win for us,” Edwards said.

“We were looking to do the double over Epping this season and that’s exactly what we did.”

The skipper praised his bowling unit and gave special praise to Scott Jackson, Zunair Jamiel and Jamal Chaudhry for their performances.

“We bowled really as a team again this week,” he said.

“Scott has bowled well all season with getting some of the wickets he’s deserved.

“It was good for him to get a couple of early ones in the game.

“We got Epping under pressure through the opening bowlers then we got the spinners into the attack Zunair and Jamal who did really well claiming the other wickets for us.”

The hosts lost Paul Hurworth cheaply in reply, with former captain Chris Cook also departing.

But opener Tom Gentle held firm and hit an unbeaten 80, with support from Adam Thain (32 not out) as Green completed an eight-wicket win in the 23rd over.

“Tom batted really well on Saturday.

“Its easy, in a low run chase like that to get complacent but he kept his concentration very well and was well supported by Adam Thain getting us over the line with some powerful hitting.”

A sixth win of the season leaves Green in fifth place on 161 points, with five games remaining.

That sees them lying 51 points off the top two promotion places and Lloyd Edwards’ men are set to visit Walthamstow next weekend.
