Leicestershire claimed their first win in the LV= County Championship since September 2012 after beating Essex by six wickets at Chelmsford.

The Foxes have finished bottom of Division Two in each of the last two seasons and came into this fixture on the back of a 37-match winless streak.

But they finally ended the drought, claiming their first away victory since 2010 in the process, as they successfully reached their victory target of 163 on the final morning.

Angus Robson contributed 71 at the top of the order and - although his dismissal left Leicestershire on 117 for four - Andrea Agathangelou's 42 not out at more than a run a ball helped them across the line.
