Hadleigh & Thundersley were well beaten at Brentwood in the Hamro Foundation Essex League Premier Division.

Captain Sam Handley chose to bat in the first of nine timed matches, but saw Ruben Vapiwala fall cheaply at the Old County Ground.

Adam Soilleux (24) put on 54 with Cameron Shekleton, who made 55 off 107 balls before falling to Bailey Wightman with the total on 102.

And Wightman removed Handley and Luke Smith in successive balls to complete a hat-trick, with Oliver Smith (21) also falling without addition to the total.

Max Holmes followed, meaning five wickets and fallen for just five runs, with Carl Lees unbeaten on 18 as the visitors were dismissed for 133 in the 45th over.

Wightman finished with 6-37 for the home side, who went on to win by seven wickets as Jack Hebron hit 12 fours in an unbeaten 70 from 78 balls.

Adam Dobson (3-55) took all three Brentwood wickets to fall, as Hadleigh fell to a second defeat in six outings ahead of a home date with Buckhurst Hill next weekend.

Billericay were convincing winners of their Division One derby with Shenfield.

The visitors slumped to 44-6 after choosing to bat as Robert Rayner (4-34) ran riot.

And although Jack Newton (34) and Christopher Bridle (51) put on 60 for the seventh wicket, Shenfield were all out for 149 as Arjun Bhardwaj (3-45) and Ross Poulton (2-34) mopped up.

Billericay raced to a 10-wicket win to move top of the table as Bhardwaj (55 not out) and Raynard Van Tonder (88 not out) shared an unbroken 152-run stand.

They visit nearest rivals Epping this Saturday.

Westcliff celebrated an emphatic win over Aztecs in Division Two, after posting 271-4.

Charlie Lockhart (91) and Hammad Ul Hassan (81 not out) led the way with the bat, before the visitors were skittled for 127.

Ul Hassan did most of the damage, claiming 7-55 in his 16-over spell, ahead of a derby date at Benfleet, who had to settle for a draw at Orsett & Thurrock.

Tom Longhurst (3-46) and Luke Whitbourne (3-68) had most success with the ball as the home side reached 241, thanks largely to Manoj Sarathchandra's 125 off 87 balls.

But after Rob Zammit (35) and Gavin Blowes (28) put on 59 for the fourth wicket, Benfleet slipped to 128-7 and needed to dig in.

Longhurst hit four sixes and 10 fours to finish unbeaten on 74 from 50 balls, putting on an unbroken 75-run stand with Taylor Casson, who scored nine off 29 balls.

Old Southendian fell to a 37-run defeat at Horndon, meanwhile, after dismissing the hosts for 182 inside 39 overs.

Tj Bailey (3-52) was the pick of the bowling, as Andrew McGarry (2-24) and Ahsan Yousaf (2-36) nabbed braces, but only three batters made double figures in reply.

Hafiz Yawer Afzal top scored with 51, as Jordan Taylor (24) and Muhammad Usman Ghani (17) also made starts, but Md Munirul Islam (5-21) was chief destroyer.

Southendians host Woodford Wells this weekend.

Leigh-on-Sea were on the wrong end of a heavy defeat at Harlow Town in Division Three.

Gregory Bannister and Stuart Elliott both took 2-79 as the home side posted 270-8, having been 126-5.

And Elliott (51) and Bannister (31) were top run getters in an 83-run stand after Leigh slumped to 34-7.

Ronnie Yates (6-22) did the early damage to set Harlow up for their 149-run victory, with Leigh welcoming Woodford Green to Chalkwell Park next.

There was better news for Southend-on-Sea & EMT, who claimed a 68-run win at Hawks in Division Four.

Chris Maher (29) and Hemanth Kumar Venkatakrishna (21) were the only batters to pass 20 as they slipped from 76-2 to 127 all out in the 46th over, with Joshua Cole claiming 5-41.

But Hawks were skittled for 59 in 28 overs, as Matt Mohan (4-5), Adam Hunt (2-16) and Luke Clarke (2-19) combined with the ball.
