Woodford Wells captain Joe Johnson was ‘disappointed’ rain proved costly as they got themselves into a good position against Upminster before the match was abandoned.

Upminster won the toss and elected to bat first where Woodford bowled them out for 152 with Rehan Iqbal (4-28) the stand-out with the ball. 

But the match was brought to an end after a heavy downpour meaning Woodford couldn’t go out to bat. 

“It goes without saying we were disappointed on Saturday after getting ourselves into such a good position," said Johnson.

“It was pleasing that we learnt the lesson from week before and bowled them all out and we were confident of chasing it.

“I still think we can play even better and if we hold all our catches we might have been able to have won before the rain came down but once it did there was no chance of getting back out there.  

“We’ll keep searching for that first win and surely soon our luck will turn if we keep on performing with the ball like that.”
