Richard Hindley’s six-wicket haul earned Havant an easy win in their derby clash with Burridge in the Southern Electric premier division.

The club’s former skipper collected six for 35.

But Burridge captain Rick Ankers (48 not out) spared some blushes as his side were bowled out for just 123.

Ben Walker (54 not out) and Harry Hovey (40 not out) saw Havant home.

Elsewhere in the premier division, Ventnor’s Ian Hilsum claimed six for 28 in their seven-wicket win over Lymington.

Sarisbury Athletic’s division one promotion hopes suffered a major blow as they went down to a five-wicket defeat in a top-of-the-table thriller with New Milton.

Archie Norris (79) and Jack Lovett (93) laid the foundations for Sarisbury’s imposing 270 for seven.

But the league leaders paced their chase to perfection as Mark House (115) and James Park (90) excelled, which allowed the visitors to seal victory from the penultimate ball of the game.

Hambledon could yet find themselves dragged into relegation trouble after they were beaten in the final over by Andover in one-wicket loss.

Dan Hewitt (39) top-scored for the Dons, but he was unable to repeat his efforts with the ball as his penultimate over went for 10 runs with the visitors needing 14 to win.

The result leaves Ian Turner’s side fourth from bottom and casting an eye over their shoulders.

In division two, Portsmouth halted their recent slide with a convincing five-wicket win over Rowledge.

Leg-spinner Rob Jones (five for 48) played a huge role in Rowledge being restricted to 205 for nine before Jack Marston (73 not out) guided the city club to a welcome win.

Havant II went down by 76 runs in their division two clash with Sparsholt.

In division three, Waterlooville’s late charge up the table kept its momentum with a 107-run win over resurgent Trojans.

Warren Ekstraal’s fine knock (84) took his side to 238 for nine.

Trojans were then dismissed for 131 as Waterlooville wrapped it up.
