South Woodford claimed a convincing win over Horndon in their final home match of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Two season.

Captain Joe Craddock chose to bat first and saw Henry Blackwell (35) and Bradley Copper (34) make solid starts at the top of the order.

The home side then suffered a mini collapse, before Craddock took matters into his own hands and hit 75 at number seven, with Jamal Richards, Jamie Carroll and Michael Browne also reaching double figures as they reached 206.

Saihaj Jaspal (3-19) and Indika Wickramaratne claimed early wickets in Horndon’s reply, with Copper and Jake McMullen also having success.

And Copper mopped up the tail to finish with 4-11 as Horndon were skittled for just 78 in 25.1 overs and South Woodford moved up to fourth in the table.
