Full scorecard

Copp, opening the batting, scored 64 off 60 balls and Lennox recorded a 76-ball 70 from number three. Their best work came in a second-wicket stand that took Redbourn from 18-1 to 125-2.

The middle order kept pouring on the runs as Gary Lough scored 28 and Adam Pritchard and James Bunce hit 27 and 35 respectively. Dean Flynn added 20 from number eight before being run out.

The innings closed on 270.

St Albans started the chase confidently, with Marcus Townsend and Andy Knill-Jones putting 53 runs on the board.

Once again, the second-wicket partnership was the most fruitful as Ashish Dean and Townsend racked up runs. The pairing was ended when Townsend fell one short of a half-century after picking out a fielder at deep mid-on.

Dean went for a well-made 53, caught by Pritchard off Henry Amos, and Henry Scott walked for 11, putting Redbourn in control of the match. A late partnership of 27 by Rob Still and Andy Saunders wasn’t enough as St Albans ran out of overs.
