THE EQUATION across the park was simple – winner takes second place, while Westcliff held an outside chance of taking the title should Leigh falter.

On the day, Westcliff won comfortably. Skipper, Peter Banes scoring a snappy 70 as they posted a modest 197/9.

Jason McNally was the pick of the Harlow attack, taking 5/47. However, his efforts proved to be fruitless as the visitors batting order collapsed.
