Home Counties Premier League Division One

Radlett 209 (62.1) Henley 210-6 (50.5)

HERTFORDSHIRE all-rounder Paul Barker will miss the rest of the season with a broken finger suffered during Radlett's four-wicket Home Counties Premier League defeat by Henley at Cobden Hill on Saturday.

The loss of left-arm spinner Barker and the continuing absence of all-rounder Gareth Berg on Middlesex duty has dealt a harsh blow to Radlett's hopes of winning the Home Counties Premier League for the first time.

Barker's second ball was driven back at him by the former Middlesex bowler Chad Keegan, smashing the little finger of his left hand, which required an operation at Barnet General Hospital.

Radlett had earlier won the toss and decided to bat with opener Kabir Toor (32) and number three Graham Dill (23) getting starts. Tom Jenkins (46) and Felix Walker (26) and Heath Paynter (26) also contributed as Radlett reached 209 before falling all out off 62.1 overs. In reply, Keegan completed a successful match for Henley by adding 85 off 88 balls to his earlier haul of five wickets and two run-outs. Henley secured the win on 210-6 off 50.5 overs. Heath Paynter picked up 3-36 off 11.5 overs for Radlett but the Cobden Hill outfit dropped a place to third, 15 points behind defending champions Oxford in top spot.

Radlett visit Oxford for their last game of the season on Sept 6. This weekend Radlett go away to Tring Park.
