Khan is out
Matloob Khan falls lbw to David Ormerod as Accrington near victory
Accrington fought back to dismiss title rivals Enfield for 59 after the visitors sub professional Steffan Jones claimed the best figures of the season taking 9-48 to bowl the league leaders out for 125 at Thorneyholme Road. James Ormerod (10) and Stuart Crabtree (29) put on 36 after Jimmy Hayhurst had become Jones' first victim at 4. Ormerod was then run out and later Crabtree was caught by Adam Bracewell in the gully after putting on 25 with professional Roy Silva. Graham Lloyd was next to go, bowled by Jones for 10. Jones then trapped Silva lbw for 42 and next he removed Simon Hanson without scoring. Matt Schofield, Andy Greenwood and Graeme Sneddon soon followed before Jones wrapped up the innings by bowling Damian Clarke without scoring. Enfield's reply got off to a shaky start with Silva removing Chris Maudsley and Craig Fergusson and David Ormerod sending Andy Barker back to have the visitors struggling at 11-3. Adam Bracewell (21) and Joe Wrigley (15) steadied the ship by taking the score to 39, but after Ormerod removed them both, Enfield collapsed from 54-3 to 59 all out. The Accrington skipper finished with 4-18 from 17.5 overs, including 10 maidens, Silva took 2-37 and Hayhurst 2-3 as Accrington, whose amateurs have all come up through the junior ranks of the club, picked up maximum points for the eighth time to stay top of the table after 10 matches.
