After losing by 43 runs at Southgate on Saturday, Brondesbury proved too strong in the Middlesex knock-out cup on Sunday

Hornsey will try to bounce back on Saturday when they host Barnes in the Middlesex County League Division Two.

Garfield Struthers team lost their first match of 2018 last weekend – going down by 43 runs at Southgate.

Hornsey went into the clash full of confidence after a fine start to the new campaign, but came unstuck at Walker Cricket Ground.

The visitors won the toss and fielded first and bowled Southgate all out for 167, despite opener Tom Edrich hitting an unbeaten 100.

Paul Weekes (4-53) and George Everitt (4-42) did the main damage with the ball and Hornsey would have backed themselves in reply.

The chase got off to a bad start, however, as both their openers went for ducks and they were reduced to 45-6.
