Danny Pheloung and Charlie Lockhart were amongst the runs as Westcliff On Sea claimed maximum points from their Cook Division encounter at Chalkwell Park.

Pheloung hit 96 off 71 deliveries, while Lockhart’s 83 ably assisted as Westcliff posted a big total just shy of 300 – Danny Norris and Henry Overy each taking two wickets for the visitors.

Matt Doran and Wayne Read scored 76 and 75 respectively as Belhus offered a spirited response. But with those around them falling relatively cheaply, Westcliff always appeared in the driving seat.

And so it proved. Gurpreet Singh took 4/42 and Shambeel Chaudhry 3/57, confirming the home sides’ second victory of the campaign.

Points: Westcliff On Sea 20 Belhus 6
