Harpenden Cricket Club came up against an in-form batsman as they fell to a 47-run defeat at home to Potters Bar in SHCL Premier Division.

Patrick Scott hit an unbeaten 140 as Potters Bar recorded 259-8 from their 60 overs.

Scott’s performance was hugely frustrating for the home bowlers who kept the rest of the order in check.

They started well and had the visitors at 28-2.
