Full scorecard

The seamer took six wickets for a paltry 26 runs in a 13-over spell that included six maidens.

Aaron Jones was his first victim, out LBW for an eight-ball duck. Jacob Winfield didn’t fare any better at the tail end of the innings, getting trapped in front without scoring.

Henry Tyler top scored for St Albans with 20 before was caught and bowled by Majid Khan, who also accounted for the wicket of Adam Houslow.

Aijt took two wickets in two overs to removed Matt Howeson and Daniel Rosson, but the innings belonged to Thomas who was insatiable.

Defending an extremely low total was always going to be difficult, and, despite an early wobble from Miles Barnard, who was bowled by Joseph Clouting for three, Lewis Koch (40*) and Kyle Claxton (19*) ensured Leverstock Green got over the finish line without any further alarms.
