Hampstead can expect a difficult final match of the 2017 Middlesex League Premier Division campaign at home to struggling Southgate this weekend.

Garth Davson’s men go into the contest full of confidence after thrashing Brondesbury by 118 runs last Saturday.

When opener Mubasher Hassan went for a golden duck it looked like being a bad day for Hampstead, but number three Sam Evison and Oliver Redwood (21) put on fifty for the second wicket.

When Redwood was caught, it brought Davson to the crease and what followed was some top-class batting.

The pair put on 172 for the third wicket and by the time Evison was out, he had hit a brilliant 125 off 121 balls.

After his dismissal, Davson upped the ante and went on to reach three figures before he was caught for a fine 104.

It allowed Hampstead to reach 299-5 from 50 overs and Brondesbury failed to offer much resistance in reply.

Andy Collier was the chief destroyer for the away side, as he claimed 4-47 from his 10 overs and was supported well by Matthew Cooke (2-19) and Jamie Litherland (2-29).

Brondesbury were all out for 181 to place Hampstead fifth in the table with 79 points going into the final day of the season.

A victory for Davson’s men over Southgate will relegate their rivals and potentially see his team rise to fourth.

South Hampstead travel to Middlesex Tamil Sports & Social Club on Saturday eager to end a tough year on a high.

Last weekend they claimed an impressive six wicket win at home to Harrow Town after a solid all-round display.

The visitors won the toss and batted first, which seemed a good decision as they reached 80-1 until James Williams entered the fray for South Hampstead.

Williams picked up 3-24 from his eight overs before Mohamad Choudhry got in on the act and finished with 3-17 from nine overs.

Varun Agnish (2-35) also impressed, as Harrow were restricted to 144-9, which proved lightly work for South Hampstead, as Nish Patel hit a quick-fire 55 off 47 balls.

Wicket-keeper Tim Marcon (37) and Avnish Patel (21) stuck around before Williams saw his team home by six wickets with an unbeaten 11.
