Captain Renford Coulson chose to bat first but saw four of his top six fall for a combined nine runs.

Opener Michael Charles (15) and Patrick Blair (23) reached double figures but the hosts were in trouble at 72-6 before Coulson (26) put on 40 with Kelvin Abraham, who hit a six and three fours in his top scoring 39.

Rayon Younge finished unbeaten on 22 as Green were dismissed for 164 in the 37th over, with Blair and Younge having early success with the ball to leave Redbridge 24-2.

But opener Hayat Ali (67 not out) held firm to steer the visitors to a five-wicket win, as Younge (2-58), Ian Fuller and Morris Seaton took the other wickets to fall.
