Fives & Heronians claimed a 32-run win over Horndon after a high-scoring Essex League Division Two clash at The Paddock.

Put into bat, Fives slipped to 46-2, before Fahad Iqbal put on 128 with Ali Raza (53) and then fell six runs short of his century to make it 196-4.

Ben Britton (28) made a start, while Jake Poulter scored 40 for the hosts and Stuart Knapman added an unbeaten 25 as they closed on a challenging 317-9 from their 50 overs.

Jack Perham struck the first blow with the ball in the Horndon reply, with captain Greg Summers also having success to leave the visitors 50-2.

But a 96-run stand gave Horndon new hope, before Sarfaraz Ahmed (3-34) struck twice in quick succession.

Knapman (2-55) had success at the other end as Horndon slipped to 197-7, to put Fives on top, but some lower-order resistance held them up.

Poulter (2-45) made the breakthrough and Iqbal ran out last man Ryan Madder to dismiss Horndon for 285.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
