Career best for Mark

Mark Biggs hit a career-best 160 not out as Banwell and Churchill defeated Temple Cloud.

BANWELL and Churchill travelled to Temple Cloud and came away with victory in a high-scoring encounter.

A solid opening stand of 93 between Tom Woodey and Mark Biggs set the scene for the day. Biggs was joined by Dave Pye and the pair put on what is believed to be a club record second wicket partnership of 193.

Pye was out for 68, but the batting was dominated by Biggs, who finished with a career best 160 not out, in a total of 293.

Pearson took an early wicket but, Temple Cloud rattled away to 98 before they lost a further wicket in the 14th over. Veater scored 73 before he was deceived by Rob Salter’s flight.
