Essex clinch one-day title

Essex captured the FP Trophy with a five-wicket win over Kent at Lord's.

Kent opted to bat but lost both openers within six overs, and despite Martin van Jaarsveld's battling 58 they were struggling at 138-7 in the 37th over.

Ryan McLaren hit 63, sharing a stand of 66 with Yasir Arafat to take them to 214, but Essex coasted to 60-1 in reply.

Robbie Joseph dismissed Ravi Bopara and Alastair Cook in consecutive overs, but veteran Grant Flower hit an unbeaten 70 to seal victory with seven balls left.
