Enfield pro Werner Coetsee said he needed a few more wickets during the tea interval on Sunday – and he duly obliged.
The South African went to the top of the wicket-taking charts with his 6-55 which secured his side a 66-run win over East Lancs and kept them in the title hunt.
Coetsee now has 45 wickets in what is proving a prolific season as he also has 403 runs to his name.
Not that he is top of the scoring charts at Enfield as skipper Adam Bracewell has 413 – he was the star with 60 against East Lancs on Sunday.
"Adam is doing well," said Coetsee, in his second season at Dill Hall Lane. "But I think we are all enjoying it at the moment. Enfield is a special club and it’s the only one I have come back to for a second year.
"I have been really well looked after and I want to do well for them.
"There is a possibility of a third year although it depends what happens in South Africa.
"If I am coming back to England, it will be to Enfield if they want me.
"But we are just concentrating on this month at the moment.
"It’s a big one for us as we play leaders Lowerhouse twice.
"I am good friends with their pro Francois Haasbroek and there is competition between the two of us as I am desperate to get one over on him. He is top of the league at the moment but we still have a chance.
"This month will define our season. We are third at the moment and I will be disappointed if we finish any lower than that."
Enfield, along with Accrington, are 25 points behind unbeaten Lowerhouse who are on course to successfully defend their title if they can keep this up.
But Accrington are also hitting a run of form and they got one over another of the title challengers Ramsbottom on Sunday.
Graham Lloyd hit an impressive 93 but the star of the show was Simon Hanson who went for it in the last few overs. He hit an unbeaten 53, smashing his 50 off 24 balls with three sixes and six fours in their 228-5.
Ramsbottom, as eager to get the game on at Thorneyholme Road as the hosts, were always struggling though when they came out to bat.
Despite their professional Pieter Malan making an unbeaten 103 no one could stay with him.
They were 22-2, soon to be 33-3 and 38-4.
They were well off the run-rate needing 150 off 15 overs and with wickets falling and tight bowling, the overs ran out as they finished 61 runs short.
Church were gutted to lose out to Lowerhouse as they had hoped to rein the pacesetters back in.
The West Enders never got going in a 30-over clash as they were 20-3 until Mohammad Jamil hit a vital 61 to give the score some respectability at 131-8. Jon Finch took six of the seven wickets.
In reply. Lowerhouse were never in trouble despite two wickets from Andy Bentley as the leaders opened up their gap at the top.
Rishton’s clash at Haslingden was abandoned at lunch time with both captains agreeing their was no chance of play at Centre Vale.
It’s a double header this weekend with the local derbies on Sunday.
Rishton will be on the hunt for a fifth win of the season but they are at title chasing Accrington, while joint second place Enfield will be trying to put air between themselves and fourth placed Church.
