ENVILLE returned from Harvington with a maximum points haul following a nail-biting one wicket win.

The hosts won the toss and decided to bat in a match reduced to 40 overs per side due to a wet pitch. Scoring was slow initially but then picked up from the 20 over mark. Enville's fielding again was not up to scratch as a number of catches were floored as Harvington accumulated 198-7. Adam Tranter (2-51) and Leigh Passmore (2-32) had the pick of the bowling figures.

Enville’s response got off to a terrible start as they slumped to 9-2 and then 23-3.

But Spencer Mann (32) started the fightback with a stand of 60 with Rob Miller. Miller (67) eventually fell after a number of useful partnerships but with the visitors still needing 33 from four overs.

Chris Bate (25) and Passmore (13) scored quickly but Enville kept losing wickets and it fell to Jamie Tristram to hit the vital runs with five balls to spare.

At Enville Hall, the second XI lost the toss and were asked to bat on what could have been a tricky pitch due to overnight rain.

However, Enville’s batsmen knuckled down to the job and scored a useful 218-6 off their 50 overs with Ryan Moore (82) and John Branch (43) the pick of the batsmen. In reply, Harvington were dismissed for 103 in 33.1 overs with Oliver Wilcox taking 4-16.
