Despite the seemingly below-par target, Fives were quickly reduced to 6-2 then 43-4 and when Gordon Whorlow fell for 37 with the score 81-5, the hosts were slipping to defeat.
Skipper Terry Ballard then turned the game with some mighty blows to smack 62 in 48 balls.
Ballard holed out with the score 157-6, but Jackson then took the mantle as Fives needed 13 from 18 balls with just two wickets remaining.
But the gloveman then showed his ice-cool nerves, as he launched two superb sixes to give the hosts a two-wicket win and finish unbeaten on a superb 67.
