Dunmow made it two wins from three with a 30-run success over Little Bardfield.

Mel Hussain (20) and Stu Felstead put on 93 for the first wicket, with Joe Gallant (67) continuing his good form.

Felstead fell for exactly 100, his maiden century for the club, to make it 175-2 before Joe Owen (4-51) and Tom Graham (1-57) held up scoring late on and they closed on 259-8.

Matt Graham (58) and Daryl Hymas (33) got Bardfield off to a good start, before Hussain (2-62) and Gallant (2-38) bowled well in tandem.

Josh Rix (3-38) and Ben Spargo (2-53) also had success as Bardfield were eventually dismissed for 229.
