Tivoli Road club won by three wickets last weekend

Hornsey missed out on promotion to the Middlesex County Premier Division — despite beating Enfield by three wickets in their final Division two game of the season

The Tivoli Road club went into the final day of the season knowing they still had a chance of finishing in the top two, but needed a win and other results to go their way.

Against Enfield, Hornsey were put into the field after losing the toss, but figures of 5-31 from Paul Weekes helped them restrict the hosts to 198-9.

Joe Emanuel then top scored with 54 in reply for the Tivoli Road club as they completed a successful chase in the 42nd over.

Hornsey had done their job, but victories for both Stanmore and Harrow St Mary’s saw them miss out on a top-two finish by three points.

It means the Tivoli Road side will line up in the division again next season having finished fourth, and will look to challenge for promotion once more.
