Recovery came from Daryl Sleeman (22), but with nine bowlers of Mersea taking regular wickets, and three run outs the visitors were resticted to 85 for 9.
In reply, Mersea made a poor start losing openers Jim Hall and Ruben Butler cheaply.

Joe Young (3 for 5 from 11 balls) causing the end of innings slump, after Luke Coppin (3 for 10) had bowled tidily at the start of the innings. Ollie Wyatt made his 75th appearance for the club, while Ben Rumble scored his 500th career run, and also took his 50th career catch.
