Goresbrook 107-6 beat Hornchurch 54 all out by 53 runs
CHRIS DOVE was in outstanding form, taking five wickets for only 10 runs as Goresbrook under-13s won their Havering League 20- over match against Hornchurch.
Batting first, Goresbrook's in-form opener Gaymer fell early for just two and skipper Shane Barwick fell shortly after, also for two.
Dove was looking good but then fell to a good catch for just six, as opener Read was joined by Ben Irving.
The pair picked up the tempo and the runs started to flow, that was until Read was run out for 29.
Irving then carried on without much support and his unbeaten 21 and return to form was much needed as it helped 'Brook to post a competitive total of 107-6 in their allotted 20 overs.
In reply, Durrant and Kenley were looking good and it looked like being a close affair until Dove was brought into the attack.
The left arm seamer, who hadn't bowled in the last couple of games, produced a wonderful spell, bowling four overs and taking five wickets for 10, including one maiden. He was backed up by Barwick who took 1-17, Brad Reed 1-5 and Callum Shepherd 1-2.
Luke Read took two fine stumpings, with Barwick and Reed both producing fine run outs as Hornchurch fell 53 runs short of the target.
Goresbrook 109-6 beat
Rainham 69 all out by 40 runs
SHANE BARWICK captured three wickets without conceding a run as Goresbrook under-13s hammered Rainham in a friendly.
'Brook won the toss and decided to bat first and the in-form Bobby Gaymer gave his side a flyer retiring on 27.
He struck four boundaries and he was supported admirably by debutant Max Fook who hit a fine 19, although no-one else managed to make double figures.
In reply, 'Brook used all there 10 outfield bowlers and managed to still bowl out Rainham for just 69.
Jimmy Woodhouse, Riley Brown, Callum Shepherd and Bobby Gaymer all took a wicket a piece, but it was Billy Smith and Shane Barwick who stood out, Smith taking 2-6 and Barwick 3-0.
