Saffron Walden CC crashed out of the Evening Standard Challenge Trophy in the fourth round at Bromley on Sunday.
Walden suffered a disappointing day with the bat, eventually going down by 57 runs.
Bromley won the toss and elected to bat first, but this didn't seem a wise decision as they lost their first three batsmen for just five runs.
However, J Watson (16) and A Wells (59), got the hosts back on track. When they were dismissed, G Sheen (41), N Bluett (14) and R Braithwaite (18), helped Bromley reach 172 all out in 49.3 overs.

Walden got off to a slow start in reply losing Ryan Sparrow (1), Ray Mordini (0) and Giles Ecclestone (7), for little resistance.
