Enfield regain top spot after defeating Edmonton in Middlesex County Cricket League Division Three
5:50pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in Sport
Enfield moved back into first place in Middlesex County Cricket League Division Three after overcoming Edmonton by five wickets.
Enfield decided to bowl after winning the toss but they struggled to contain a strong Edmonton batting order.
Daniel Hare top scored with 62 and Edmonton looked in a strong position at 202 for four. A big collapse ensued however and Enfield managed to dismiss their opponents for 231.
Adam Ezekiel claimed four for 23, Syed Karrar ended with three for 65 and Leon Smith secured two for 70.
The Enfield reply got off to the perfect start as opener Neil Tilley put on 59 before being caught off the bowling of Hare.
The runs continued to flow throughout the order but it was Jack Plumb who played the key innings and his knock of 70 not out ensured Enfield chased down the runs in 40 overs.
In Second XI Division Three, Enfield Seconds defeated South Hampstead by six wickets while the Thirds beat Twickenham Fourths by 30 runs in 1987 Cricket League Division One.
