Wood are only SNEL winners

Harold Wood were the only local team to win in the Shepherd Neame Essex League at the weekend.

A fine opening spell from Shaz Hafeez (4-25) put Horndon on the back foot in their Division Two clash.

And further success for Waqas Shafique (3-29) and Richard Brabner (2-22) saw Wood dismiss their rivals for just 120.

Wood lost six wickets in reply, but reached their target thanks to Colin Sher (33) and Shabhaz Khan (36 not out).

Gidea Park & Romford had to settle for a draw against Leigh at Gallows Corner.

After a delayed start, due to a wet outfield, Park restricted the visitors to 188-8.

Vinayak Mane picked up 5-40, but Park faced only 35 overs in reply and made 134-7.

Ardleigh Green held on for a draw at Shenfield in the Premier Division.

Chamikara Mudalige (4-46) was the pick of their attack as Shenfield were dismissed for 246.

But Green lost their way after solid contributions from their top three and closed on 179-8.

Rivals Hornchurch and Upminster both fell to defeat in Division One.

Billy Gordon took 3-31 as Hornchurch saw hosts Chingford make 222-7.

But Lenny Daniels (6-25) and Shaun McMurray (3-21) ran through the Hornchurch line-up in reply, skittling them for just 51.

Matt Tigg and John Curtis took three wickets apiece as Upminster saw Hadleigh make 218-8.

But although Andrew D’cruz, Alan Ison and Junaid Sarwar all made good starts with the bat, Upminster fell short on 168.

Hornchurch Athletic’s Essex County League clash with Walthamstow ended in a thrilling tie, but Havering went down by 15 runs against Eastwood in the Mid-Essex League.
