North London edged out Enfield in their Middlesex League Division Two encounter.

Put into bat, they saw both openers dismissed early on to find themselves 31-2.

Captain Sam Bardon fell cheaply and it was 57-4 after Peter Stone (22) succumbed.

But Jordan Gregory (26) and James Battcock (35) shared a 50-run stand for the fifth wicket, with Freddie Issitt and last man Ted Greally also getting into double figures to lift their total to 171.

Battcock struck early with the ball in Enfield’s reply, with Issitt (2-31) nabbing a brace to make it 41-3.

Greally got in on the act, before a 76-run stand for the fifth wicket looked to put Enfield in the driving seat.

Gregory broke through with the key wicket of Max Houlahan, who hit 74 off 63 balls, and went on to claim 4-33 as Enfield collapsed from 138-4 to 150-9.

James Fell also had success, before Battcock (2-24) returned to claim the final wicket and seal a 14-run win.
