Watford Town Thirds remain top of the table after they sealed a seven-wicket victory against Berkhamsted Thirds.

Watford won the toss and inserted their opponents. Fine bowling from Zirak Khan, who snared six for 31, saw Berko bowled out for 102.

Watford eased to the total of 103 for three. Hasseb Khan was the main contributor with 39 while Richard Eames scored 18 not out.

Langleybury Fourths lost by one wicket in a tight match against Northwood Town Thirds.

Batting first having won the toss, Bury posted 155 all out from 35 overs. Five batsmen got to 18 but Kev Gallagher top-scored with 39.

In reply, a hostile opening spell from Under-16 bowler Jaxon Lloyd (two for 52) had the Northwood Town batsmen calling for their helmets.

He was supported by Chris Coleman (four for 41) but Town were able to sneak to a narrow victory with a single wicket in hand.

Javed Raj starred with the ball for Watford and claimed two for five. Abu Choudhury ended with two for 25 as Harpenden were restricted to 148.

Raj then continued his good day, hitting 34, but he was surpassed by Sandeep Singh who smashed an entertaining 63 to continue his fine form and guide Watford to victory.

Langley batted first and posted a respectable score of 202 for seven off 45 overs. Warwick Smith struck 74 not out while Dave Barton (59) and Tony Thompson (30) added useful contributions.

Watford Town Fifths maintained their recent good form as they recorded a 40-run win against Chorleywood Fourths.

The Wood reply was broken up by some impressive bowling from 14-year-old Sohail Khan, who ended with fine figures of seven for 24.

Khan’s display put Watford in control and they were able to skittle their opponents for 102.
