The latest from our local clubs in the Essex League Division Three

Old Brentwoods remain top of the Essex League Division Three table after a five-wicket win at Epping.

The visitors won the toss, put the hosts into bat first and saw them dismissed for 172 at the end of the 42nd over.

Sachin Bawa scored 105 for Epping, but Khalid Sarwar’s 3-21 kept the home side in check and Ishaq Khan (2-16), Anis Khan (2-29) and Hanif Khan (2-27) made sure they didn’t use all of their overs.

Old Brentwoods didn’t need much time to chase down 173 with Raheel Ahmed (49) helped them make a good start before Sarwar finished unbeaten on 69 to cap a good individual day for him.

Woodford Green are right on their coattails after an excellent triumph away to West Essex on Saturday.

The hosts batted first, but were all out for 96 with Paul Richardson taking 4-16 and Usman Azhar’s 3-16 doing most of the damage.

In reply, Woodford Green had no dramas as captain Hamaad Sayyed hit 29 and 54 not out by Hussnain Kazmi got them home by nine wickets.

There was less joy for Ardleigh Green, however, after they lost by 58 runs away to Walthamstow in a low-scoring encounter.

Jamal Chaudhry took 4-26 and Zunair Jamil’s 4-36 ensured the home side were all out for 181.

Green made a solid start to the chase with Tom Gentle hitting 30 and Paul Hurworth (17) and Chris Cook (23) sticking around for a significant period of time.

Once all three of them went the visitors couldn’t build enough partnerships and were dismissed for 123.
