Ardleigh Green & Havering and Woodford Green both won on the last day of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three season, but Goresbrook lost at champions Leigh.

Stanford were skittled for just 93 by Ardleigh Green at Central Park, before the hosts raced to a 10-wicket win in 16 overs.

Shawn Harvey (5-6) produced a stunning new-ball spell to reduce the visitors to 6-5 with Dalton Calcott claiming the sixth wicket to fall with the total on 29.

James Walker (3-15) ended a 39-run stand for the seventh wicket and Adam Thain also had success to help wrap up the Stanford innings inside 35 overs.

Thain (26 not out) then played the supporting role in reply as Paul Hurworth hit two sixes and 10 fours in an unbeaen 64 from 49 balls to see Green to a quick win.
