After an excellent win over Broomhill Wanderers in their previous game, Upminster started well against Navestock on Sunday. Adam Quested and Louis Pickering both reached the retirement mark as the scoreboard ticked along nicely, but after they left the crease the middle order struggled. Quested was run out (28) on his return to action but veteran John Curtis made a telling contribution as he made 27 not out, and with Pickering making an unbeaten 37 Upminster were able to reach 130-4 from their 12 overs.
Pickering struck early in the Navestock reply, but Matt Simmons and Billy Lozowski rebuilt the innings. However, Pickering removed Simmons and Lozowski was run out as Upminster gradually took control. Navestock battled well to use their full complement of overs, but they finished on 70-5 as Upminster won by 60 runs.
