After drawing with leaders Enfield on June 30, Paul Weekes inspired Hornsey to success at Eastcote last weekend
Hornsey returned to winning ways in the Middlesex County League Division Two on Saturday with a seven-wicket victory at Eastcote.
After drawing with leaders Enfield the weekend before, Garfield Struthers men were eager to keep up their good form and make it three wins from four fixtures.
In the end, Hornsey did it comfortably, but only after more heroics from inspiration all-rounder Paul Weekes.
Eastcote looked on course for a decent score when they were 75-1, but two wickets fell for no runs and then it turned into the Weekes show.
