Dunmow slumped to a crushing defeat against Abberton in their latest outing at St Edmunds Lane.

Luke Swanston put the visitors into bat but saw Trussler (94) and Savill (60*) lead Abberton to 258-6.

Wickets were shared by George Gallant (2-62), Joe Gallant (1-17), Josh Rix (1-35) and Baz Sewell (1-60) and Dunmow’s openers put on 82 in 15 overs in reply.

Joe Gallant (31) was then stumped and wickets tumbled at regular intervals, with four falling in four balls as Terry dismissed Rix and Savill claimed the scalps of George Gallant, McLaughlin and Pascoe for a hat-trick with the score on 156.

Gibson and Sewell tried to secure another batting point, but came up one run short as Dunmow were dismissed for 174 and Terry (5-53) and Savill (5-67) shared the wickets.

Dunmow travel to Bury St Edmunds next weekend.
