North London men and women both extend leads at the top of the table
North London cricket club's men and women’s first elevens both recorded wins at the weekend to extend their leads at the top of their respective league tables.
The men travelled to Harrow and in a low-scoring game were bowled out for 83 in 44 overs.
But once again North London’s opening bowling attack was too much for the opposition with Will Jones (7/29) and Freddie Issitt (3/16) skittling out Harrow for just 47.
North London will now host Barnes this weekend as they bid to remain top of the league table.
The women hosted Ealing on Sunday and the home team scored 214 for four off their 40 overs.
14-year-old Hannah Burridge top-scored with 83 and India Whitty hit 77.
Ealing were bowled out for 70 for a 144-run victory to North London.
