Michael Philipson’s first century of the season was not enough to save Hornsey as they slid to a 99-run defeat against the Premier Division leaders in the Middlesex County Cricket League.

The Hornsey captain held his side’s innings together with a glittering knock of 111, but a lack of support meant the visitors were unable to hold out for a draw.

Philipson had sent Teddington in after winning the toss, but his opening bowlers were put to the sword as James Keightley (41) and Harry Bush (26) shared a first-wicket partnership of 64.

Keightley’s run-out was soon followed by Bush’s dismissal at the hands of Oli Yew (3-63), who also removed Richard King (10) leg before to pen Teddington back at 96-3.

James Fear (20) also succumbed to a run-out, while Nii-Amaa Ollenu (5-68) made further inroads with the wickets of Ben Williams (29) and Joe Austin (14).

But a century stand between Tom Ullyott (59) and Joe Barnett (52) put Teddington firmly in control before Sandeep Singh took a catch off Yew to get rid of Ullyott at 260-7.

Ollenu then blew away the tail, sending Paul Higham (1), Barnett and David Keightley (1) back to the pavilion in rapid succession as the home side totalled 269 all out in the 62nd over.

Hornsey suffered an immediate setback to their reply when Higham (1-26) trapped Conor Goodwin-Tindall lbw without scoring, but Philipson and James Bull (8) steadied the ship.

Teddington’s Ben Ladd-Gibbon (5-33) put them on the back foot again as he had Bull caught behind and then bowled Richard Wharton (1), but James Fleming (20) helped Philipson to take Hornsey into three figures.

When Fleming was leg before to David Keightley (3-57), wickets began to fall at a regular rate as Will Notley (1) and Henry Howard (9) departed, although the skipper swept on to reach his ton.

But Ladd-Gibbon returned to dismiss Ed Wharton (1) and Sandeep Singh (0) in successive deliveries and, when Philipson was ninth out, defeat was only a matter of time.

Ladd-Gibbon duly wrapped up the innings in the 52nd over by bowling Ollenu (0) to complete a five-wicket haul and keep his side on top of the table.
