A fantastic bowling performance from Michael Lee and a composed batting display from Simeon Cohen ensured Radlett 2s finished the run of limited overs games with a 100 per cent record.
The Saracens Herts Division Two A switches to a timed over format as of this Saturday.
Radlett look well placed to continue their assault on their division rivals after taking St Albans to task at Clarence Park.
After struggling early on, opening bowler Ben Lederman picked up three wickets while the middle overs were superbly controlled by Lee (3-13). He was well supported by Troy Barrett.
St Albans’ Phil Caley, fresh from scoring 134 last week against Leverstock Green, was beginning to settle before a direct hit from Radlett captain Dan Foster accounted for his wicket, ending his innings on 47.
St Albans subsided for 157.
The run chase started well with new signing Martin Jones and Graham Dill opening the batting. Both went with the score on 37 and wickets continued to fall at regular intervals.
