Garfield Struthers’ team will aim to bounce back at home to Wycombe House this weekend

Hornsey have seemingly lost form at the worst possible time in the Middlesex County League Division Two.

Garfield Struthers’ team lost again last weekend, this time at Harrow St Marys, to make it back-to-back defeats.

They remain fourth in the table, but are now 21 points behind second-placed Enfield and a further 26 from leaders Stanmore.

A poor batting display was costly for Hornsey at Harrow St Marys last weekend after they were dismissed for 148.

Harrow St Marys always looked in control in reply, but Joe Emanuel claimed 3-28 off 8.3 overs to make them sweat a tad.
