Cricket: Endon end their wait for league success
ENDON are finally up and running at the fifth time of asking thanks to a six-wicket success against Church Eaton.
Michael Dawson (5-43) and Phil Rowley (3-2) put the division's new boys on course for defeat after they were dismissed for 68.
Endon had few alarms in knocking off their paltry target, Jordan Weaver ending unbeaten on 19 to complete the formalities.
Wedgwood Stanfields' batting failed to fire once again, but their bowlers ensured they would be celebrating a 25-point haul against Hanford.

Ramzan Mohammed top-scored with 25, but Mike Coxon's 7-37 skittled Wedgwood Stanfields for 82.
Mohammed and skipper Adrian Lello Senior dashed Hanford's hopes of banking the spoils at Church Lane with some wily seam bowling.
Mohammed led the way with 6-25, while Lello captured three wickets at the same expense to bundle out the hosts for 69.
Hem Heath Forsbrook stunned Oakamoor by keeping their cool to earn a two-wicket success.
Muhammad Ayub (49) and James Smith (40) were the backbone of Oakamoor's 152 all out, despite the best efforts of Fida Hussain (3-18) and Shazad Liaqat (3-35). Hussain and Andrew Jones then made 48 not out and 32 respectively to guide Hem Heath Forsbrook past the post.
Edward Brookes was the pick of the visitors' attack, ending with 3-18.
Richard Williams left Moddershall A in seventh heaven as they saw off Fenton by nine runs.
Set 108 to win, Williams took 7-41, allied to Shaukat Bashir's 3-16, to dismiss Fenton for 98, despite 38 from Paul Farmer.
Williams had earlier been left undefeated on 47 as Moddershall were bowled out for 107. Eddie Plant (4-27) and Chris Mellor (4-36) inflicted the bulk of the damage.
Bagnall remain at the top of the tree after edging a low-scoring encounter at Norton in Hales.
A comfortable victory for the front-runners appeared to be the order of the day after Asif Raza's 7-17 had accounted for the hosts for 63. Norton in Hales were indebted to James Ruscoe's 30 for preventing total embarrassment.
Simon Line (3-5) led the recovery mission, but opener Simon Gordon's 25 ultimately proved critical in achieving a three-wicket victory.
Stone SP skipper Neil Podmore was the driving force behind his side's 80-run cruise against Crewe.
Jason Revill (63) hit a half-century, and Dan Lunn chipped in with 35, as Stone SP posted 152 all out. Former Pakistan star Shahid Mahboob claimed 7-65 during a 28-over spell.
Crewe, though, collapsed from 33-2 to 72 all out with left-arm seamer Podmore's inspired 5-7 sealing the points.
