Enfield remain within touching distance of the Middlesex County Cricket League Division Two promotion places after a four-wicket win at Harrow on Saturday.

Leo Smith excelled with the ball for the visitors, taking five Harrow wickets for 58 runs as the home side struggled to settle.

Smith was in ruthless form, taking three of the first four wickets to leave Harrow on 71 for four. Tom Bolt (two for ten) and Lee Robertson (two for 32) both struck before Smith removed two more wickets to dismiss the home side for 142.

In reply, Joe Naughton (2) was removed early, with Enfield on 24 for one. Jack Plumb (34) was then dismissed to leave the visitors on 44 for two but a knock of 51from Asad Shah – which included nine fours – eased the away side to 146 for six.

Elsewhere in Division Two, Winchmore Hill remain rooted to the bottom of the table after a 101-run thrashing at the hands of Shepherds Bush.

Batting first, the visitors put on 200 for nine before declaring.

Despite the best efforts of Mohsin Akhlaque (four for 61), Winchmore had little joy restricting their hosts’ scoring; Dan Davis (50) and Ian McGowan (48) leading the way.

Winchmore Hill made a stuttering start in reply, with Siran Seeveratnam (2) and Steve Gent (0) dismissed early to leave the away side on seven for two.

Mark Barrell (0) was next to go as Winchmore slipped to seven for three. Mark Barrell hit 31 to offer some resistance and Tobi Claridge (31) also weighed in but the visitors were all out for just 99.

In the Saracens Herts League Division One, Holtwhites Trinibis slipped to a 55-run loss at Luton Town and Indians.

Batting first, hosts Luton put up a total of 208 all out, which Holtwhites could not reach, closing on 153 for nine.

North Enfield slipped to a five-wicket loss at home to Harpenden Seconds in Division Three.

Put into bat, hosts Enfield were removed for 198, with Harpenden reaching the requisite total of 199 with five wickets in hand.

Northampton Exiles were also beaten, going down by four wickets at home to Southgate Compton in Division Four.

Electing to bat first, the home side put up a steady 200 for eight before their visitors reached 201 with four wickets to spare.
