London Colney sealed the Division Six A title with a comprehensive six-wicket win over Old Finchleians on Saturday.

Heading into the match needing 11 points to be crowned champions, Colney wasted little time in stamping their authority on the game and dominated from the outset.

With Finchleians batting first, Colney were eager to make an early impression in the field and did just that to restrict their hosts to 94 all out.

Tim Fretter was in fine form with the ball and did for the Finchleians top three to claim 3-21 and set the tone for the remainder of the Colney bowlers.

Simon Fretter was also productive and picked 2-13 to help put Colney in control heading into their innings.

They did, however make a poor start, losing their opener for one before Graham Seymour and Rick Zeiderman took the game by the scruff of the neck.

The pair put on 60 before Seymour was removed for 27.

It was left to Tim Fretter to finish what he had started as he smashed a six over mid-wicket to score the title-clinching runs.

Harpenden also enjoyed a productive weekend as they overcame Welwyn Garden City in a three-wicket victory.

They owed much of their success to a strong team bowling display, which saw a host of their bowlers struck.

Ben Frazer (2-24), Billy May (2-25) and Nick Lamb (2-33) were on form and their were also a wicket apiece for Scott Galloway, Ben Clements and Arthur Garrett.

The Harpenden response was spearheaded by Gregg Cooper who opened the batting an remained resolute throughout to score 76 not out.

His efforts were vital as Harps chased down 152 to win, with Hemish Ilangaratne the only other man to score double figures with 21 as they reached their target with nine overs remaining in the day.
