A devastating bowling display got Brondesbury out of trouble and secured a home win over Hornsey at Harman Drive.

Despite the efforts of Simon Butler (36) and Christopher Blake (26), Brondesbury were skittled for 117. But Jamie Odell then claimed figures of 4-17 and Palash Joshi took 3-14 as Hornsey were bowled out for just 58, with 10 of their 11 batsmen falling in single figures.

Brondesbury captain John Fosbraey won the toss and elected to bat, but he lost openers Hugh Gimber (1) and James Overy (9) early on.

Blake and Butler settled the nerves, taking the hosts from 11-2 to 50-3 and, when Blake was caught off the bowling of Hornsey skipper Michael Philipson, Butler added another 33 runs in partnership with Jordan Bethel, moving the score up to 83-4.

However, Bethel (7) was then caught off the bowling of Martin Tucker (3-32) while Butler immediately followed for a top score of 36 – and wickets continued to fall regularly as Philipson (4-46) and Sandeep Singh (2-10) found their rhythm with the ball.

Odell (13) was the only one of the last seven batsmen who reached double figures as Brondesbury’s innings came to a rapid end after 37.3 overs with 117 on the board.

It was a very gettable score but it proved to be a winning one as Brondesbury’s bowlers ensured Hornsey never got within sight of it.

Thomas Kopelman (1-11) snared Richard Wharton (5) and Odell had the visitors’ other opener, James Bull, caught for a duck before repeating the feat with his replacement Philipson (4) to make it 12-3.

Garfield Struthers (4) was run out by Blake and Fosbraey (1-8) trapped Chetan Patel (8) leg before at 35-5.

That became 43-8 as Joshi struck three times in quick succession, and Odell then returned to remove Ed Wharton (3).

Oliver Yew became the only Hornsey batsman to reach double figures but he was stranded on 11 not out as the visitors fell well short on 58 after 34.5 overs.
