Will Whittell starred on his debut as Aston Rowant beat Chingford by eight wickets in their Club Conference Cricket Cup first round clash.
A below-par fielding display from the visitors saw the Essex side reach 208-7 off their 45 overs.
In reply, Chris Watling fell early, but fellow opener Whittell stood firm.
He ended on 76 not out and shared a second-wicket partnership of 143 with Richard Cook, who finished unbeaten on 80 as Rowant passed their target with almost three overs remaining.
