Stoke Newington firsts picked up a comfortable victory over Old Actonians firsts on Saturday in the Middlesex Championship Division One.
Newington bowled out their opposition for 168 and hit 169-4 in 36.5 overs to secure the win.
Actonians' number two batsman Jinesh Patel hit 75 runs but Zabe Mohammad's fast bowling enabled him to take five wickets, with Irfan Mohmand taking another two.
After Newington cruised to 50 in no time at all thanks to Scott Doody (43) and Peter Stone (30), Sarafat Ali (13) formed a strong partnership with Jamaican Hodayne Bryce (29) to secure the remaining runs needed.
On a sunny day at Hackney Marshes, table-toppers Stoke Newington seconds won the toss and put Old Actonians into bat first.
