Harpenden Cricket Club are off the mark in the SHCL Premier Division season with a seven-wicket win over Luton Town & Indians.

Luton won the toss and elected to bat on their home pitch but thanks to some solid bowling from Harps, they were restricted to 148-9 in their 50 overs.

Ben Clements and Richard Darwin nabbed three wickets apiece while Ben Frazer scored two.

Nick Lamb also starred, taking 1-25 from his 10 overs.

Frazer then returned to haunt Luton with the bat, hitting 76 in just 48 balls.

It helped Harpenden reach 149-3 in the 33rd over.

Radlett also got back to winning ways with a 41-run win over Potters Bar.

They had been in a spot of trouble at 97-7 but 53 from Kabir Toor and an impressive 42* from Abdulrahim Mulla got them to 170 all out.

And a tail-end collapse saw Bar go from 124-5 to 129 all out.

Darren James finished with figures of 3-35.
