Most local clubs frustrated by the poor weather, as the rain wrecks havoc across the county

Hutton were the big winners in the Essex League Division Two on Saturday, as rain ruined most of the action.

Before the weekend, Hutton and Hainault & Clayhall were joint-top of the table after 10 games.

But with Hainault’s home game with Hordon abandoned, the Polo Field Hall club made the most of their opportunity to play.

Hutton captain Daniel Hagger lost the toss at Basildon & Pitsea and the hosts decided to field first.

Chris Steinberg (19) and Alex Tredgett (37) got the visitors off to a bright start before the former was caught.

Skipper Hagger added 21 at number three, but the middle order struggled, as Basildon got on top.

Number seven Mitchell Fenn (15) and Jonathan Mowll (20) added crucial runs down the order, though, as Hutton were dismissed for 170 in the 46th over.

Basildon were going well in reply until Vivian Paver (3-43) ripped through the top order to give the visitors the advantage again.

Mowll (2-17) and Fenn (2-21), after impressing with the bat, turned the screw in the field and claimed some crucial wickets.

And it was left to Connor Limrick (2-6) to wrap up the innings, as Basildon were all out for 155 to send Hutton clear at the top.

Hainault remain second after their home clash with Hordon was abandoned after just 27 overs of play.

Zoheb Sharif struck 57 not out and Omar Akram was unbeaten on 32 before the rain saw the match called off with the hosts on 110-2.

Oakfield Parkonians’ fixture at home to Old Brentwoods was abandoned much to the frustration of everyone.

The visitors were 138-3 in the 33rd over when the rain forced the match to be called off, which saw six points shared between the two clubs.

Fives were happy with their work on Saturday, however, as they claimed an emphatic win at Old Southendian & Southchurch.

Fahad Iqbal smashed 115 with Gary Norris adding 87, as they scored 341-5 from their 50 overs at Garon Park.

A solid team bowling effort then saw the hosts all out for 191 with Jonny Kay claiming 3-22.

Greg Summers (2-38), Stuart Knapman (2-35) and Iqbal (2-16) also chipped in with important scalps.

There was not a lot of action in Division Three with Ardleigh Green’s match at home to Leigh abandoned after less than 18 overs.

The visitors were 74-2 when rain forced the match to be called off and it was a similar story for Woodford Green.

Green travelled to Harlow Town and the hosts were 121-2 off 28 overs when their game was abandoned.
