Wood triumphed by 46 runs at Woodford Wells on Saturday
Harold Wood skipper Craig Perrin was pleased to see his team get back on the winning trail with a 46-run victory at Woodford Wells in Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One.
Wood made the trip to Wells off the back of a defeat to Havering rivals Upminster the week previous.
Batting first after losing the toss, the visitors closed on 272-9 following half-centuries from Mdaminul Islam Shihan (67), Shahbaz Khan (63) and Perrin (58).
Luke Hammett then took 3-26 with the ball for Wood as they dismissed their hosts for 226 in reply.
It was a welcome return to winning ways for remain 17 points adrift of a promotion place in Division One.
But Perrin believes the success over Wells could prove to be a vital one come the end of the campaign.
“For us, it was a must-win game after losing against Upminster the previous week,” said Perrin.
“It was good to get back to winning ways and I was pleased we were able to deliver a better performance compared to last week.”
