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.”
