Highgate earned the local bragging rights over Hornsey with a winning draw in their Middlesex League Division Two derby at Shepherd’s Cot.

Put into bat, they saw Christopher Arul (42) put on 93 with Shane McNamara (39) for the first wicket, only for the two to fall in quick succession to Paul Weekes.

Scott Elstone added 86 for the fourth wicket with captain Syed Muazam Ali (33) and finished unbeaten on 80 from 89 balls, hitting two sixes and eight fours.

David Monk (24 not out) put on an unbroken 53 for the sixth wicket as Highgate closed on 266-5, with Tahmid Islam (2-65) and Weekes (2-101) doing the bulk of the bowling for Hornsey.

Islam fell cheaply at the start of Hornsey’s reply, with James Bull (22) run out by Elstone. But Weekes put on 125 with Joe Emanuel, before falling eight runs short of a century to Malik Shahid Sadiq (2-35).
