Shenley finished on 117-6.
St Albans' reply started slowly.
They mounted an attack after six overs through Hugo Harding (16) and a quick fire nine from Harry Knill-Jones to make it 50-2 from 12 overs.
Alfie Button (11) played the anchor role, but without further support the St Albans innings ended on 58-7.
St Albans U11s 8-a-side team recorded a good away win against Flamstead.
Some big hitting from Jack Ypey (24) was followed by strong batting throughout the team.
The loss of only four wickets in the entire innings allowed St Albans to amass a powerful 79 run total.
Flamstead set off aggressively but an economic bowling performance from the St Albans bowlers slowed the run rate down and led to the loss of four quick wickets in four overs.
This proved to be the turning point and left Flamstead needing to score 45 runs off the last four overs.
The strike partnership of brothers Alfie and Joe Button bowled a tight final four overs, with young debutant Joe delivering a Man of the Match performance in his first U11s game with some excellent pace bowling.
