NORTHCHURCH I continued their push for promotion with a nine-wicket win at Potters Bar II to move them up to third in Division Three.

Another five-wicket haul for Darren James (5-38) ensured that Northchurch only had to chase 127 to win, and an unbroken partnership of 117 between Andy Lerpiniere (33 n/o) and George Liveing (79 n/o) saw Northchurch home with 15 overs to go.

The second XI, meanwhile, secured a draw at home to Wheathampsted II in Division 7.

Glenn Randall (120) and Adam Meager (5-59) were the stars for the Northcurch side.
