Mixed fortunes for local clubs

James Aggio-Brewe shone with bat and ball as Upminster beat Harlow in SNEL Division One at the weekend.

Aggio-Brewe struck eight fours in his 101 and shared a 157-run stand with Alan Ison, who smashed 78 off 56 balls.

In-form Ison struck two sixes and seven fours as Upminster made 277, before John Curtis (3-14) made inroads with the ball.

Ison (2-16) nabbed a brace as Harlow slipped to 64-6, before Aggio-Brewe claimed three late wickets to seal a 132-run win.

Hornchurch slipped to a seven-wicket defeat against Hadleigh, after Billy Gordon (62) top scored in a below-par total of 177-9.

But Gidea Park & Romford got the better of Stanford in Division Two.

Half-centuries from Matt Tarr and Luke Baker led Park to 212, as Michael Gray claimed six wickets for the hosts.

Rudi Filmalter (3-20) struck early with the ball to leave Stanford in trouble at 29-4.

And youngsters Sam Hewitt, Jakk Carver, Mueez Qureshi and Chris McKie also had some reward, before Vinayak Mane (3-16) mopped up to clinch a 99-run win.

Table-topping Harold Wood went down by 44 runs against Wickford, who made 209-6.

Ardleigh Green were well beaten by defending Premier Division champions Brentwood at Central Park.

Chamikara Mudalige took four wickets as the visitors amassed 268-8.

But Thomas Oakley (50) was the only Green batsman to make much impact as they were dismissed for just 141.
