Chris Brown took seven wickets as Harrow St Mary’s reclaimed third place in Division Two of the Middlesex County Cricket League by beating Enfield, despite being bowled out for 100.

Enfield’s Lee Robertson recorded figures of 6-27 as the Saints struggled to reach triple figures at their Headstone Lane home – but Brown fared even better with the ball in the second innings, taking 7-24 to save his side and secure a 29-run victory.

Having slipped two places down the congested table to fifth after losing their previous game, the win took HSM back up to third – 17 points outside the promotion spots.

Meanwhile, Wembley tumbled four places down to seventh after suffering a home defeat against Uxbridge.

The visitors, who were asked to bat, declared on 223-7 after 50 overs, with John Elmes (55) and Toby Polkinghorne (54) their top scorers.

Moazzam Rizvi (57) also struck a half-century in Wembley’s run chase, but Marwan Mohammad (7-41) ensured they fell 68 runs short, all out for 155 in 39 overs.

Wembley are again running a summer cricket camp for children aged eight to 13.

Fully-qualified coaches will organise games, coaching and activities for four days from Monday (August 3) to the following Thursday between 10am and 3.30pm. For full details contact John Haskell by emailing or calling 07962 441124.
