Shenley Village 146-6 beat St Albans II 144-10 by 4 wickets
SHENLEY Village managed to wrap up a four-wicket win over St Albans II on Saturday before persistent drizzle set in for the evening.
The home side won the toss and decided to field, immediately taking advantage of a wicket which seemed to suit strike bowler Wendell Roberts.
Opener Rowlands was caught off the bowling of Roberts in the first over - the first of three early wickets to fall and one of six taken by the tall St Lucian.
St Albans recovered well with Jones accelerating the run rate until he was caught by youngster Charlie Thurston - Shenley Village's U13s captain - making his first team debut.

McKinlay batted steadily to make 44no but the St Albans tail put up little resistance as they were all out for 144.
For the home side, Morgan Stanley and Thurston got off to a good start before Thurston was caught for 12. This brought Anooj Vadgama to the crease, who hit a quick 24 before being the first to be removed by spinner Galloway.
With the dark clouds looming, Shenley continued to score at a good rate with Al-Darraji and Laney quickly adding to the run tally.
The game ended with a four from Lloyd Willingham, as Shenley comfortably reached their target in the 27th over.
