MOLLIE Robbins produced fine figures of 5-9 from nine overs for Hanham who went on to brush past Portishead by nine wickets in Division One of the Martin Berrill Bristol & District League.

Portishead very quickly came to regret their decision to bat at Abbots Road as the Gloucestershire Women’s seamer devastated their top order, sparking a collapse to just 63 all out.

Former skipper Duncan Boffin (30 not) and Ryan Gardiner (24 not) then saw their side jump two places to second by banking maximum points in less than 11 overs.

There was an exciting finish at the Netham where Pak Bristolians completed a last-ball two-wicket win over Bristol Pakistanis.

Skipper Qasir Abass starred with an unbeaten 66 while Tanveer Ahmed also hit 53. Earlier, opener Adnan Cheema top scored with 69 for Bristol Pakistanis.

Phil Jackson smashed 105 off just 64 balls (nine fours, seven sixes) for Downend 2nds who overcame their Bedminster counterparts by 155 runs.

Old Bristolians Westbury are the last remaining unbeaten side in the Senior Division after trumping Coalpit Heath by five wickets, Chris Phillips top scoring on 51 and Rupert Swetman unbeaten on 42.

Keynsham 2nds slipped up for the first time, going down by one wicket at home to Shirehampton, whilst it was also tense at Golden Hill where Bristol YMCA held on for a four-run victory over Chew Magna.

Simon Hygate’s 61 and 42 from Andy Hyde lifted YMCA to 216-9, and crucial spells from captain John Colley (3-40) and Tayyab Riaz (3-21, both from nine) then saw YMCA over the line.

Opener Tom Laver continued his excellent early season form with 55 for Bradley Stoke who defeated Claverham by 54 runs, Wayne Passmore also claiming 3-25 from nine.

In Division Two, there was a first win for Bishopston 2nds who overcame Bitton by five wickets, openers Simon George and Matt Wood both contributing half centuries.

Pakistani Express stay top of Division Three, Nouman Manir starring with 5-23 in a five-wicket home win over Midsomer Norton 2nds.

Sam Stokes (4-20) and Sam Flowers (3-33) shone for Long Ashton who overpowered local rivals Backwell Flax Bourton by 87 runs.

And in Division Four, there was a last-over one-wicket triumph for Bristol YMCA 2nds away to Bedminster 3rds, slipper Razi Ahmed contributing a crucial unbeaten 31.
