Hutton saw their lead cut at the top of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One table by title rivals Colchester after losing their summit meeting at the Polo Field Ground.

Dan Hagger put the visitors into bat and saw Tom Patterson strike early with the new ball to dismiss opposite number Jake Foley.

But half-centuries from Joe MacGregor (56) and Jack Hebron (57) helped Colchester reach 191-3, before Connor Limrick (3-47) and Vivian Paver (3-32) hit back with the ball for Hutton.

After dismissing the visitors for 239, Hutton lost Cameron Tredgett cheaply in reply, with Julian Whetstone (23) and Adam Holdgate (34) following to leave them 74-3.

Australian all-rounder Paver put on 70 with Alex Tredgett, hitting three sixes and three fours in his 44 off 38 balls, but Hagger and Connor Whetstone were dismissed cheaply by Denson Narayan (4-32) to leave Hutton 158-6.

Tredgett followed soon after, having made 34 off 54 balls, but Joseph Parry (30) and Patterson put on 50 for the eighth wicket.

Both were dismissed in quick succession by Taurai Muzarabani (4-26), before Colchester completed a 24-run victory and closed to within 32 points of Hutton at the top of the table.
