Tring Park I climbed to second place in the Home Counties Premier League with an eight-wicket demolition of Radlett.

Radlett started well at 82 for no loss, but the Tring spinners soon started to run riot.

Skipper Keith Dutch took 4-82, while Michael Payne claimed 5-75 as Radlett were restricted to 237-9 from their allotted overs.

In reply, Pete Handscomb and Leigh Tomlinson put on 61 for the opening Tring wicket, before Dutch came in and added 70.

Australian Handscomb completed his century, as Tring cruised home with six overs to spare.

Tring’s second XI, meanwhile, saw off Kew by 68 runs in their entertaining clash.

Matt Adams hit a fine half century and Greg Proudfoot added 34 as Tring ended on 194-9.

Fresh from his batting display, Proudfoot struck with the ball and left Kew reeling at 34-4.

Further wickets left them on 38-8, and Proudfoot (5-38) returned to take the final wicket and seal the win.

Tring Park III also picked up a win as they proved 15 runs too good for Hillingdon Manor, while the fourth XI beat Whitchurch by five wickets.
