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.
