BERKSHIRE, Chilterns & Mid Bucks Championship winners Chalfont St Giles continued their stunning season with a convincing six-wicket home win against Welford Park, writes Richard Ashton.

Simon Payne was the destroyer-in-chief for Chalfont as his 4-17 helped dismiss the visitors for just 111.

The hosts lost Simon Lancaster early on, but despite a brave effort from Tom Fogden (3-40), Chalfont St Giles cruised to 112-4 in 24.4 overs.

A sensational all-round display from Scott Harris helped Peppard Stoke Row to a narrow 19-run victory at home to Braywood.

PSR made a fine start as openers Jamie Sharrock and Don Townsin put on 65 for the first wicket, but their middle order was blown away by Nasser Satti (4-18 from 12 overs) and they collapsed to 92-5.

However, Harris (61) received useful support from Josh Perkins and Alfie Clifton, and despite a trio of run outs, the home side eventually reached 198.

Braywood suffered an early setback as Harris bowled Shahbaz Khan before trapping Kamran Ahmed and Yaser Ahmed lbw.

Clifton had Attiq Uddin magnificently caught by the diving Perkins at cover, before he bounced out Waqar Hassan.

Satti’s departure left Braywood 110-6, but Faisal Malik (46) and skipper Asam Raza appeared to have the game in control until the returning Harris returned to remove the former leg before.

Harris (6-39 from 15 overs) then bowled Hassan Ali, and with Clifton (4-78) also coming back to take two wickets, the visitors were bowled out for 179.

West Reading put in a fine performance to batter Ley Hill by 196 runs.

Adam Davidson (135) moved top of the league’s run standings with a magnificent knock, and with Usamah Mahmood (116 from 77 balls) and Muhammad Imran (43 from 28) providing late impetus, Wests racked up a huge 348-5 before declaring after 50 overs.

With the exception of Lewis Thompson (51 from 36 balls) the Ley Hill innings never really got going, with Hafeez Ul-Wahab (5-12 from nine overs) again bowling superbly as the visitors crashed to 152 all out.

Relegated Crowthorne & Crown Wood recorded a second-straight win with a four-wicket success at Penn & Tylers Green. Evergreen Ravi Godbole (5-38) and Jeff Cluett (3-48) helped dismiss Penn for 179, and skipper Nick Outram then made an unbeaten 64 to guide the Crows home in 36 overs.
