Ardleigh Green made it back-to-back wins for the first time this season and captain Lloyd Edwards say they’re hungry to keep their streak going.

Edwards chose to bat first against Westcliff at Chalkwell Park, with Paul Hurworth (69) top scoring in their 226.

Choudhry Mahboob (31), Chris Cook (23) and Adam Thain (23) also made starts for the visitors, but Westcliff were always in the hunt in reply.

Captain Lloyd Edwards (4-55) proved the pick of Ardleigh Green’s bowling, with Zunair Jamil (3-36) helping to secure a six-run win in a tense finish.

“Another win for us and we feel like we’re getting a bit of a head of steam going now,” Edwards said.

“We have seen what two wins can do for our league position and hungry to improve on that further this weekend coming.”

Skipper Edwards says he has been feeling like it was only a matter of time until his side strung a few wins together.

“We have felt that the matches we weren’t winning we were still doing the right things and we knew it would come together one day.

“Although we have been disappointing with some of the results prior to this its all forgotten once you win a couple of games and we hope that positivity continues.”

He praised batsmen Paul Hurworth for his display and believes the overs format really suits his opener.

“He is in great form at the moment, he is hitting the ball clean and in the overs format, where only two fielders can be outside the ring for the first 15 overs, he is taking full advantage.”

Edwards also heaped praise on bowlers Zunair Jamil and Jamal Choudhry.

“I think we bowled well as a whole unit, Zunair is starting to pick up wickets and bowled well again Saturday but truth be told my figures look better than the spell actually was.

“The stand out bowler of the day was without doubt Jamal Choudhry.

“He steadied the quick start Westcliff got off to and on a wicket that didn’t offer much for the bowlers he was fantastic on the day.”
