Masonry paint on wood?

I'm painting the exterior front of my house with Dulux trade smooth exterior masonry paint (tinted to almond white). Part of the front of the house has wooden panels (triangle sections under the roof, sorry not sure of correct term) which I think the previous owners have just painted with the same masonry paint as the rest of the rendered front. These panels have flake/ peeled a bit over time. Hence I don't want the same thing to happen again. Problem is I want the same finish and tint on these panels as the rest of the front.

I think the Dulux trade exterior satin (for wood) can be tinted but the sheen would not match the masonry paint, correct (?) Can the wood panels be prepared so that the masonry paint can be applied on top without flaking/peeling in years to come? if so what do I use?
