North Middlesex are hoping to go one step further and claim the Middlesex Premier League title in 2017.

Pipped to top spot by champions Teddington last year, the Crouch End outfit began the new campaign with a 96-run friendly win over Hornsey at the weekend.

Evan Flowers retired out after hitting 102 in their 299-7 total, after Joe Cracknell had made 54 at the top of the order.

Hornsey could only manage 203-7 from their 45 overs in reply and North Middlesex captain Tom Nicoll said: “It was good to get out there and we’re all fairly confident and keen to get out there.

“Evan was out overseas nine years ago and is one of our best players, but hasn’t performed his best the last couple of years.

“If he has a good year, we will be very good. We’re hoping to go one better than last year after finishing second to Teddington.

“We won 11 matches in a row, which I think was a record, before losing the very last game of the season. Hopefully we can hit the ground running this year and pick up points early. A good start is key.”

North Middlesex visit Hampstead for another friendly this weekend, before a home league opener against Finchley on May 6.
