Gidea Park & Romford were well beaten by Belhus in their Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One clash at North Stifford.

The hosts chose to bat first and saw Matt Doran put on 55 with Joe Joyce before falling to Harry Phillips.

Ryan Wells then added another 120 for the second wicket with Joyce, before he was dismissed by Nirbhay Bist, with Max Osborne falling cheaply to Sam Hewitt to make it 191-3.

Joyce went on to reach 129 before he was trapped lbw by Aditya Kumar, with Sam O’Sullivan and Hewitt (3-52) having further success as Belhus closed on 277-8.

Park lost veteran Rusell Collard cheaply in reply, with opening partner Michael Pegram following soon after.

Captain Jamal Francis lasted just eight balls as the visitors slumped to 22-3, before Hewitt (27) and George Rogers put on 52 for the fourth wicket.

But Park were never in the hunt as Rogers (28) departed to leave them 101-6 and a late cameo from James Pegram (20) could only lift the total to 145.

Defeat leaves Park looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone with only five matches remaining.
