Chess Valley League  

Division One

Abbots Langley recorded a convincing nine-wicket win against Chingford on Sunday.

Chingford were bowled out for a modest 101 in 26 overs with Dan Roche, four for 29, and Ibby Usman, three for 26, the main wicket takers for Abbots.

Abbots had little trouble in knocking off the runs with Ben Balmforth (52 not out) and Peter Metcalfe in excellent form.

Division Four

Chorleywood continued their 100 per cent start to the season with a spectacular batting performance that set up their comprehensive 178-run win at home to Stanmore.

Batting first, Wood ran up a massive 348 for two from their 45 overs, with all their batsmen taking advantage of a good pitch and a quick outfield.

Openers Tom Smithson and Robert Kennedy led the way as they put on 183 for the first wicket, before Kennedy was out for 77.

Smithson went on to hit 117 from just 78 balls faced before Freddie Dare (70 not out) and Ian Mulholland (67 not out) continued the carnage as the Stanmore bowlers were hit all over Chorleywood Common.

Wood’s bowlers then completed the one-sided affair as Stanmore were bowled out for 170 in the 29th over.

Skipper Jamie Smithson led from the front with three for 15, whilst there were two wickets each for Jeremy Hinds and Sujoy Dey as Wood completed the most comprehensive of wins.

North London Women's League 

Division A

Radlett women’s XI recorded their 27th consecutive victory as they defeated Old Actonians by 16 runs.

Batting first, Radlett faced an aggressive start from their opponents. They looked like they had settled at 35 for none but that quickly became 45 for four at the 16-over mark.

The subsequent batting pair enjoyed a 95-run partnership in 12.5 overs and Alexis Mannion achieved her second half-century for the club.

With the ball Radlett’s Katie Pankhurst mustered two wickets in her four overs, to leave the opposition on 74 for five.

Despite a spirited display from Antonia Welch, who scored a half century for Old Actonians, Radlett were able to seal victory and keep their place at the top of the league table.
