Hutton came out on top in their Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One date with Hainault & Clayhall.

The two promoted sides had battled it out for the Division Two title in 2017, with Hainault going up as champions, and Hutton skipper Dan Hagger chose to bat after winning the toss at Oakfield.

New recruit Adam Holdgate (30) put on 65 with Cameron Tredgett, who hit three sixes and five fours in his 61 from 49 balls before falling to Hainault captain Zoheb Sharif.

Julian Whetstone (20) was trapped lbw by Sharif (2-42) to make it 131-3, with Joseph Parry falling cheaply with the total on 146.

Australian all-rounder Vivian Paver hit 38 off 37 balls before becoming the first of six victims for Ryan Hurst, who also accounted for Hagger (28) as the visitors were dismissed for 235 in the 43rd over.

Hurst finished with 6-37 but Hainault saw Sharif and Irfan Shah fall cheaply to Jonathan Mowll (2-25) to slip to 15-2.

Mousshin Ismail and Omar Akram got the innings back on track with a 91-run stand, which ended when Paver had Akram caught for 53.

But the hosts slipped to 143-6 as Connor Whetstone claimed a brace of wickets, then lost Ismail to the same bowler for a determined 62 from 107 balls.

Following a five-wicket haul against Gidea Park & Romford a week earlier, Whetstone (4-69) also accounted for Ettinder Bopara before Paver (2-41) and Parry had further success to complete a 46-run win for Hutton.
