The Leather twins combined to secure the Firsts first away win of the season as they trounced Hoddesdon on Saturday.
Opener Richard Leather continued his rich vein of form with another well-made half-century, before his brother, James, added 48 not out as the firsts piled up 254 all out.
In reply, James led the way with the ball as the home side were skittled for 130.
The Seconds were unable to force a victory at home to Sawbridgeworth II after a belligerent half-century from Guy Warman and a similar but more measured contribution from Adrian Holmes took them to 189 all out. The visitors finished eight down but more than 20 runs short as young spinners, Jack Orchard and Jason Timm, almost secured the full 30 points.
Adrian’s brother, Steve, struck a sublime half-century as the Thirds put up their best batting display of the season in compiling 212-5 against Hertford III. But some insipid bowling meant the visitors cruised past the total with just three wickets down and plenty of overs to spare.
The Fourths took the points at Abbots Langley when they successfully defended a modest 125 all out. Jo Elliott and Gareth Jones both claimed four wickets apiece as the home side were shot out for just 108.
The Fifths suffered a seven-wicket defeat at Southgate Adelaide III.
