Hutton were replaced at the top of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One table despite a nine-wicket win over Woodford Wells, who are 15 points clear of the relegation places.

Visiting captain Jonathan Gaffney chose to bat first at the Polo Field Ground but Tom Patterson made an early breakthrough with the new ball.

Mitchell Fenn (2-34) claimed the next two wickets to fall to leave Wells 75-3, before Joe Johnson (39) fell to Vivian Paver and Gareth James was run out by Patterson to make it 105-5.

Gaffney chipped in with 36, but Wells were all out for 168 in 48 overs, as Connor Whetstone (3-27) and Paver (3-32) shared bowling honours for Hutton.

Alex Tredgett fell cheaply in reply, but Australian Paver plundered eight sixes and seven fours in his unbeaten 103 from 94 balls to see Hutton comfortably home.

Julian Whetstone (49 not out) hit a six and seven fours in his 52-ball innings, sharing an unbroken 118 for the second wicket with Paver.

But Hutton were knocked off top spot by Buckhurst Hill, who claimed a maximum 25-point haul for beating Upminster after batting first.
