Oli Yew and Michael Philipson ripped the Brondesbury batting to shreds as Hornsey posted their first win in five games in the Premier Division of the Middlesex County Cricket League.

Yew recorded astonishing figures of 4-8 from 7.1 overs – including five maidens – while skipper Philipson finished with 5-23 as Brondesbury were dismissed for just 67.

And the home side survived a brief scare, losing two early wickets before Philipson struck a brisk 41 to secure a six-wicket victory at 69-4 that kept them above the drop zone and dragged Brondesbury into trouble.

Philipson won the toss and inserted the visitors on a damp surface, but Chris Blake (23) and Tom Simpson (8) gave them a solid start with an opening stand of 27.

Martin Tucker (1-18) removed Simpson, but the dismissal of Blake, bowled by Philipson, opened the floodgates as three wickets went down for as many runs.

Yew had Simon Butler (2) caught behind and pinned Hugh Gimber leg before for a duck before Philipson made further inroads, bowling Tommy Ricketts (2) and Buddy Mason (0).

Jamie Odell (4) hauled Brondesbury past their half-century before Yew trapped him lbw and Philipson completed his five-for, removing Charles Sorensen (4) and Sam Smith (6).

Yew rounded off proceedings with the first ball of the 25th over, taking the wicket of Brondesbury captain John Fosbraey (1) and leaving Tom Kopelman unbeaten on 2.

Faced with the task of attempting to defend a meagre total, Brondesbury nevertheless caused problems for the home side’s batsmen as Jamie Odell (1-14) bowled Basil Akram for a single.

Hornsey were 8-2 when James Bull (2) was leg before to Kopelman (1-17), but Philipson steadied the ship as he dominated a third-wicket stand of 40 with Paul Weekes.

Weekes contributed just one run before he was lbw to Smith (1-18), while Philipson missed out on a half-century as he fell to Fosbraey with just 12 runs required.

It was left to Adam Rossington to see Hornsey across the line in just 11.1 overs with a swift 10 not out.
