It was a day of mixed fortunes for High Roding CC on Saturday, with the firsts taking a hammering at Hatfield Peverel, while the seconds notched up another win at home to Much Hadham.

With Hatfield Peverel electing to bat, Roding firsts were soon under pressure with a huge opening partnership by Phil Bird and New Zealander Bussel.

Bird went on to score 113 and Bussel 54, with additions from Faulkner (17) and Webb (15). Peverel amassed a creditable 276-9 off their 45 overs to leave Roding chasing a huge target.

Mark Gallop came away with excellent figures of 39-5. Simon Sargent was the best of the rest with 69-2 while Jeff Clarke took 41-1.

In reply, Mel Hussain top scored for Roding with 67, while Allan Fairlie- Clarke hit 25 and Mark Gallop 28.

With no other major contributions, Roding were restricted to 203-9 off their 45 overs.

Roding will now slip down to fourth place in the league with both Aythorpe and Bentley also coming out winners.

High Roding seconds had a comfortable victory at home to a Much Hadham side who turned up with just eight players. Hadham struggled with the bat achieving just 55 runs in their innings.

These runs were quickly got by the Roding batsmen for the loss of two wickets to secure the victory.

On Saturday High Roding entertain Stock, while the seconds visit Elsenham.
