STRATFORD WESLEYANS breezed to yet another impressive victory last Saturday against a shattered Chingford XI.

Batting first, Stratford got off to their now accustomed good start, with Kevin Ashlin (34) and Tony Bowers (29) putting on 68 for the opening partnership.

It was the coming together of Daniel Cockley and Adam Kinnard who powered the away side into a commanding position though.

Cockley clubbed a quickfire 75 and Kinnard smashed 50, with the ball disappearing to all parts of the ground.
