Fourth XI Premier Division

Buckhurst Hill Fourths scraped a one-wicket win at Upminster Fifths to ensure they will at least finish fifth.

Upminster opened the batting but were well marshalled by Mark Wheeler (four for 40) and Aatish Parmar (three for 45), who ensured the home side could only put up a reasonable total of 216 all out.

Naomal Wijesooriya made a false start by being dismissed for a duck but things improved rapidly rom there with Isuru Gama (49) and Ashley Brand (41) laying the foundations for a successful response.

Nick Wright chipped in with 34 at the tail to see Buckhurst Hill to a winning total of 217 for nine.

Bottom-of-the-pile Chingford Fourths had yet another weekend to forget as they went down by nine wickets at Chelmsford Fifths.

Having won the toss, ten-man Chingford opted to make first use of the wicket but could not build an imposing total and were restricted to 128 for nine.

Michael Blake opened with a knock of 37 which suggest Chingford might go to a grander total but instead his score proved the high water mark of another disappointing innings.

Chelmsford duly made light work of wrapping up the points, losing just the one wicket in a total of 131 to finish their visitors off after 17.2 overs.

Fourth XI Division One

Oakfield Parkonians Thirds missed out on the title to Billericay Thirds on the final day, despite a seven-wicket triumph at Orsett Fourths, but are up as runners-up.

Orsett batted first and made sure Parks would have to fight for the right to sign off in style as they made 203 for six before opting to declare.

Joshua King (116) and David Carter (43) were the protagonists for Orsett with a good spell from Abdul Usman (three for 24) not enough to prevent the home side putting up a strong total.

Parks, though, had their own centurion in the shape of Teerath Diocee, who posted a huge 132 not out to inspire the visitors to victory.

Pirratheesh Vigneswarathasan hit 42 alongside Diocee to deliver the win in style, reaching 206 for three after 40.3 overs.

An entirely forgettable season for bottom-of-the-league Fives and Heronians Fourths is finally over following a draw at Shenfield Fourths.

Chasing down the home side’s 246 all out, Fives made a brave attempt and reached 214 for eight before time ran out; Andre Byfield’s score of 89 the stand-out.
