Neo CC were crowned Essex County League Division Two champions after a four-wicket win over title rivals Aztecs at Clayhall Park.

Shaha Riadh and Firoz Dogha (2-25) bowled tight new ball spells, before Ariful Islam (3-31) made the breakthrough.

Younus Shamim (1-18) ended a big partnership, while Ayaz Karim (1-48) also had success as Aztecs reached 208-7 from their 45 overs.

It was only a matter of time for Sajal Rahman (21), Younus Shamim and Shahriar Zahid to bring Neo safely home and secure the championship.
